Not having been on a bike for probably 40 years, it was with a little trepidation that I joined my partner for an excursion with Dave on a mountain biking trip, but any apprehension soon vanished completely. Dave took great trouble to plan a trip that would be suitable, his bikes are excellent (both in quality and condition) and we had a great day out. We followed the course of a disused railway that has now been made over to a biking and hiking trail and went through the most beautiful countryside, following a route of about 35kms. We made stops for lunch and refreshments along the way but nevertheless I was fully expecting to pay the price later with protesting muscles, etc. but not at all! Despite the route being mostly rough track and climbing some 600m, Dave's bikes are so well adjusted and engineered and his instruction on getting the most from the gears so good, that the only feeling I had afterwards was that I wanted to go on many more such trips. Far from regretting getting on a bike after so long away, I can see a new hobby developing, so huge thanks to Dave for that, and (since I live in the local area), I most definitely will be back for more!
