Our First Bike Ride Of 2006

Today, we did our first bike ride of 2006. We did about 12 miles of muddy hell along the towpath of the Leeds Liverpool canal from Hindley to Adlington and back.

Conclusion: we are not fit!

The weather was pretty good, the sun was out most of the time, and there was a gentle North-westerly that wasn't too cold. Unfortunately, the mud was heavy, - a bit like cycling through molasses, and of course we got pretty filthy as we don't have mud guards on our bikes.

You can see the full set of pictures here.

We also took a couple of videos. The first one is at the girls favourite spot on the canal, and the second is at the Kirkless Hall pub, - which ends up being more of an advert. Anyway, enjoy them as much as we enjoyed making them.

Thank you so much for sharing those videos! Your girls are very cute. :) Kirkless Hall should pay you for the advertisement. LOL

Wow! I feel like I was right there with you! Awesome. I need to check out the site to put some of my videos out there too. Thanks, Mark.

Fantastic videos! I agree.. you should be getting the commercial rates for advertizing the ale. Perhaps you'll have to join the actors guild (SAG?) 1st.
What fun!

Think the adverts were brilliant. You could hire the girls out too as actor and camera woman!!! :o)
