Knee started off sore from "rest' days but got better after an hour or so.
I felt tired and energy less but pushed thru anyway.
Home - meandered up to Anstey Hill and up thru main tks to Range Rd Sth.
Down past Glen Ewin on Lower Hermitage and turned right on dirt up Millbrook Rd to next junction and then S on Fidlers Hill rd to top of cutting on main rd (between C of Ponds & Inglewood).
S again on dirt Tilmouth Rd almost to Paracombe. One of the big Millbrook reservoir gates was open (looked like it had been forced) and I was tempted to go explore, but the possibility of getting locked inside kept me pedalling on.
(had run in there a lot last century)
R again to Inglewood, where i stopped for a drink, then up on Blackhill rd.
At top I went onto Head rd to the end and then went 700m thru on a little known dirt tk to where Head rd started again. Out to Murphy Rd next to Highercombe golfcourse and up on LNE rd to top of Anstey Hill.
Back into park on dirt tks heading north (past my old home) and then took single tks down the hill.
Homeward via closed Halls rd next to quarry.
Noted they they had fixed all the fence holes quite substantially to prevent people heading there for a swim. But can still access it from halfway up Anstey Hill. Then rode Aquaduct tk until it stopped where they havent finished the last 3rd. However I have 2 holes in the fence to access it and rode up to Valley View drive and then did all the made tracks and exited down to linear pk. Tired.
