Sherwood Pines Afternoon Meander

We broke out the roof rack and the little man’s bike seat and shuffled our way over the Sherwood Pines to have a couple of hours leisurely riding. My wife had quite keenly pointed out that the boys seat was knackered due to me taking him on some fairly rough bumps and singletrack and with all the bouncing and his weight he was now very laid back instead of upright.

“It’ll be fine” says I, with the confidence of a man who will pray the whole way round, and it was fine…. but only just.

The small boy was by the end of the ride laying down in a near horizontal position with his seat skimming my back wheel as we flew along the stoney paths of the new family trail.

There are new trails open at Sherwood Pines that look really good, can’t wait for a free weekend / day to go and hit them proper.

It was lovely to be riding with the Mrs again.
