The rough with the smooth

I ventured off the smooth roads and on to trails near Farnborough for some mountain biking this week.

It was a great change to pounding out the miles on road and, although I forgot to wear my heart rate monitor, I'm convinced my maximum rate got higher during the 11 miles off road  than I normally experience on road rides.

The event was arranged with a group of teammates as an after-work pedal and we all had a lot of fun riding the gravel paths, muddied tree sections and deep water obstacles.  The post-ride beer and burger was a bonus.

Thanks to Nick for arranging.
