Hi All.

After a morning of jobs and a visit to Petes workshop we set out for a run up the hill. 

 

It is a 5 min ride from Petes back door and we are into the climb. A farmers track heading of up into the hill. All ready you can feel the soft peat under the tires.

We make our way up on a very baron landscape. The tallest plant is about 1 foot tall.

 Crossing the tops the very boggy track has duct boards across the worst of it.  The fat bikes were mint, the ground very pliant under the wheels.

 You can see the little purple flowers coming out on the heater.

 Not sure but this might be the top.   Weather was damp and windy.

 Lots of sections made of hand laid stone across the peat.

 The start of the down back to town.  It's a bummer but the track finishes at the door of Peters local pub.

Well, awesome first ride. Missed a couple of shots that show how tough  the track really was.

I will add them at a later date. 

Cheers Pete
