It's always a welcome sight to see the pink blossoms on the trees this time of year.
The end of the lack of colour in the winter is something to be cheered I feel.
I was bought a Fabric Radius Elite saddle for xmas, which I still haven't fitted!!
Time I pulled the bike out of the shed and racked up the miles.

A glorious May Day bank holiday spending a few hours in the saddle exploring the hills of North Staffordshire and Derbyshire.
Spot the the hallucinogenic apparition...
Had to get my spirit level out for this one, spot the Herring anyone?
Some beers carbs to take the strain of the hills..

Loading up on the carbs and heading out for a mountain bike ride along the Cheshire canals..
Looks a bit rough and ready, but hit the spot..
5 minutes into the ride and i wa attacked by some protective hissing geese, managed to take this snap of the b'stards. nearly went arse over tit into the canal.
A few more pics from along the route..
Spot the goat
A herring stalking some ducklings, closest i've ever been to one of these shy beasts..
Plenty of old mills along the canal..
Bluebells in abundance this year, pink and white ones also..
Cricket season is upon us..
The trusty old Rockrider with puncture proof tyres..

Time for some escapism from the madness of the world.
Today's mountain bike madness, nearly died of heat stroke.
Five hours of technically difficult riding around the top of the Edale valley, the epicentre being the Devils Arse.
Early start and no one about, the sun is shining...lets have it!
Starting point is on top of Mam Tor, bloody breezy up there..
Up i trundle with a 500mls of water..
At the top of Mam Tor with the stone path stretching out as far as the eye can see.
Found a less technical grass route slightly lower down, argg ruddy sheep everywhere..
If your not totally focused on the next 2 metres in front and take your eye of the rocks and holes for a nano second then.....
12 foot over the side into a nice soft bramble bush, still picking the splinters out of my arse.
Bike still in one piece, i'll survive but i'm sticking the the stone path for now.
Waters gone and it's getting hotter than the Devils Arse after a Vindaloo and bowl of Som Tam...
A terrifying white knuckle ride to the valley below in search of sustenance.
Brakes on full skidding down the grassy 40% slope, lumps and bumps everywhere.
I'm not going to meet thy maker today.
Sanctuary from the heat and raging thirst,NOT!! Left my wallet and money in the car.
Old school village of Castleton..
It teased and taunted me all day but i didn't succumb to it..
Hot as hell and making my way back to the car on the other side of the valley i started to flounder, so took a few more pics on my rest stops that were getting longer and longer.
No hope for cyclists here, ramblers only.
No hope for this poor bleeder if Punty was about, what is it?
Plenty of multi cultural sheep in these parts..
Starting to meltdown now, buttercups anyone?
90% Meltdown, shit i've got to pick the kids up from school in an hour.
Give me that 2lt bottle of water and bunch of bananas in the car.......Ppllleeaassse.
Oh yes, orgasmic..

A few random shots from this weeks rides..
This fooker would be well at home in Thailand..
Check out the wooden monk with his begging bowl, some things never change around the globe..
The Goyt Valley..
Berty the badgers feeling a tad under the weather, rear wheel masking its identity out of respect..
Well earned protein hit..

Another sweltering weekend in the saddle...
Farmers are getting the cattle feed in for the winter..
Name that car..
Found this beauty parked in the middle of nowhere, look at thee curves, nearly shagged exhaust pipe.
An English country cottage garden..
Check out the miniature horse box and can you spot the third horses head?
A solitary swan majestically floats in the middle of a lake..
Hot enough for a dip, maybe not with that algae...
Swarms of ladybirds about..
A couple more random shots..
