Some occasional musings on mountain bike rides and walks in North Yorkshire, with odd bit of discussion on mapping technology thrown in for good measure

7 weeks of dry weather - get it while you can

I managed a few miles this weekend on some of my favourite bits. Conditions at the moment, after 7 rain free weeks, are excellent. Even in the forested areas, the trails are bone dry. The ground is so dry that even a few showers next week will just be soaked up by the thirsty ground. You can ride on semi-slick tyres and take the crud catcher off the bike now! Not having to clean the bike after a ride is so nice after the horrors of riding in winter.

What's not so good for the farmers, who need a bit of rain to keep everything growing, is great for us mountain bikers. Just please be aware of the fire risk out on the open moors.
