While out on our road ride today, near Commondale, I saw the weirdest thing.
A guy on a road bike passed us on the climb out of Commondale, we were slowly riding waiting for a rider to catch up.
He was quite old but obviously very fit, and had what looked like a number on his back……….. 😕 😕
Anyway he zoomed off into the distance and we resumed our ride……….
Then as we began our descent on the Castleton road to Lockwood Beck, the guy appeared again, riding towards the road, from the Moor, the Quakers Causeway to be exact. Now he couldn’t have got far along there, and I’m pretty sure he wasn’t on a cyclo crosser. Now why would he have even attempted to go down there, that trail is bad enough with full suspension but on a road bike or even a “crosser”………….
It was a bit bizarre. He looked pretty serious and was wearing the kit of The House/Chapters road team. I thought he had a standard carbon road bike when he came past and I did think how dirty it was. Not sure what he was doing off road 😕
I thought he was on a Carbon road bike when he passed us, but I didn’t notice the number, or what appeared to look like a number on his back until he was in the distance as I was paying a bit much attention to the bike and he was going it a bit.
