Sometimes I think that there is too much emphasis on the big adventures. Realistically if I can do one big adventure every year I am happy with that, so the question is what do you do the rest of the time?
Little adventures. Lots of little adventures. Preferably lots of little adventures with lots of variety.
As the summer starts to draw to a close (oh yes, it will nearly be that time of year to get uber excited again) it's all about cramming it in.
We done lots on our latest little adventure, but the one that will stick in the mind is the Breamish Behemoth.
For me, it was simply about getting to go riding over some amazing terrain without having to look at maps, decide where to go and tapping into local knowledge. It was awesome. What was more awesome was stopping half way around for the best cake that I have ever had - and from me that is a very big statement.
I haven't done much riding in Englandshire before but it comes highly rated and recommended :)
