Cooler lately but okay for a ride around Radcliffe & Bury ooparts. A drop of rain, here and there, but all the cycle-routes and tow-paths seem dry and ride-able. Just watchout for the high bramble branches with major thorns along … Continue reading

A little cooler today with a North wind coming from Bury. Dry though for the bike-ride around the Radcliffe and Bury areas as the hedgerows fully bloom. Watch-out for the flowering brambles along the bike-routes. They’re everywhere at the moment … Continue reading
