Narrative

Riding familar rides int he dark makes everything just that little bit harder. The steep descent in Whitley Wood, which I'd not done before was especially scary, as I didn't know what to expect outside the bubble of light cast by the bike lights. There's lots of different ways down through the woods, and this one was the steepest. The one acorss the golf course is probably the fastest as the track is better and you can avoid braking so much.
