Angus was on the Bowman Pilgrims and I was on my new Norco Search. The weather was fantastic but a real strong head wind places which made it tough going on some of the open sections. Not sure what is going on but the trails were very quiet again with only a few other cyclists, couple of runners and a few dog walkers, every one must be of their holidays!
Yesterday we had a day out down to Stokesley and Great Ayton. When were in Stokesley we called in past Westbrook Cycles to collect another pair of Panaracer Gravel King 28c tyres that I had ordered. I swapped my original pair from the Bowman on to the Norco when I rebuilt it, Angus was running Conti 4 seasons but now he has his own Gravel Kings. Todays ride was the maiden ride for them and just like mine no problems. Some of the trail sections on todays route have been patched with large stone so was bumpy going in some places but on the whole they coped very well for a 28c tyre. Below are a few pics, enjoy and more soon -
