12 Moles, with new David, avoided the rain on the classic Leith Hill circuit with Windy Willows and tea at the tower. 2 cakes for Chrissy and 25 miles for all.

About the author

John has been biking in the Surrey Hills since the late 1990s but only started riding with the MuddyMoles in 2008. In the couple of years since then he has learned more about mountain biking from the Moles than he learned in the previous ten.

Having remained loyal to his vintage pale blue and orange Stumpjumper hardtail since the last century, he has recently explored the limits of his storage space and his wife’s patience by adding an On-One Inbred Singlespeed and an Orange Five.

John is usually wearing or riding something blue and does not eat any raw fruit beginning with the letter T.

    Perhaps I ought to explain they I set JR the challenge of a ride report in 160 characters which he appears to have done (although I’ve taken it on e trust!). The look on Ginny’s face is priceless!

  2. Kev says:

    Proper job JR and a prize for banging in a quick ride report!

    Enjoyed the Classic Moles Leith ride, just like back in the old days when 12 riders was a regular turnout on a Sunday morning.
    No one died or got bent and no real mechanicals, apart from some cameo ones from LBM, so all in all a good mornings work” 🙂

    “I’m inclined to let this one pass” would be a good caption…

    Another week, another missed ride! Had a BBQ on Saturday night, no alcohol at all, but just very, very tired in the morning. I even had my gear ready to go.

    Surely the caption for the photo should be ’12 characters or less’??

  6. David says:

    … enjoyed the Leith ride. Good variety and in good company. And no need to say ‘cheese’ anymore for pics. Timing is everything!!
