Rode today, taking in the Goyt Bridge Loop that is now one the of established routes from home and a more interesting alternative for riding than the river run. Unfortunately we discovered today that the council have sanitised one of the best bits on the route. It’s now under tarmac and has gone from being a nice downhill woodland trail to a section full of steps. That said the best bit is still there – a roll in to a chute, but it’s now behind a fence so you can’t ride into it any more and then the roll out at the bottom hs been turned into a muddy mess. Perhaps I shouldn’t complain too loudly, a lot of the riding in Reddish Vale is cheeky, but it’d be rude not to poach them. It was good to be out in the sunshine, but after weeks of rain, there was plenty of mud too.
