An evening just like yesterday. Did the whole loop (CW) this time, including the part on the esker by the road. Didn't make it up the steep initial climbs on that part, because I didn't shift into a low enough gear. Did quite well on the rest of it, although I had one flat-out fall about halfway around when I failed to get over a fallen tree. Stopped for a couple of minutes to see if I could do anything about a widowmaker that's blocking the trail, hung up just a little too low to ride under, but getting that clear would take either more persistence or some kind of modern tool. Stopped to clear another uprooted sapling that was in the way. There are a few difficult spots on this loop, but nothing that's unrideable.

WBSE Challenge Loop, CW, but bypassing the first twisty bit by the road. Absolutely lovely day, and when I got home, I had the sudden notion that maybe I should get out and enjoy it. The oppressive humidity of the past few days was gone, and a little mountain biking seemed like the right thing. Last time I did this loop on foot, I paid close attention, and for the first time ever I managed to do the transition from Old City Road correctly in this direction. I thought my technical skills might be rusty, but this went quite well, a handful of dabs, but I got through some challenging sections successfully, including two of the three stone walls (and almost on the third one). But PG probably does stuff like this on his dark blue bike.
