Isolation cycle Pt 4; frozen trails....


No mud today!


Zero degrees all day with bone dry frozen trails where it had lately been muddy!,  
On the beach it was quite surreal with ice along the shore line....



Find of the day was another WW2 Hispano 20mm cannon shell cartridge, how these survive nearly 80 years intact lying out here with 2 tides a year buried in the sand is quite amazing, most are dated 1942, fired from aircraft which strafed targets practicing in the Bay...



Trails inland were sheets of ice with everything bone dry with the mud frozen solid...


We took advantage of the dry trails and rode a shot loop west of JMCP, the 5" Fatbike tyres smoothing out the frozen ruts and inspiring grip made light work of the conditions...









Wee film from todays cycle, Song is `Stress` by Tycho

More soon...
