Thinking that Rivington would be mentally busy today I crawled out of bed at 7am and out the door at 7.15. It was hard work though, due to a night of bad rib pain. - as it turns out it still wasn't busy when I left, which was about 10am, usually it's starting to pick up with the annual Boxing Day Hunt.

For ride number 365 of the year I didn't really do much, I was feeling sick and demotivated so I just rode around, though the sloppy mud, wheel-spinning up the hills, wishing the trails were as nice as they were a year ago and wondering if they can ever go back to their former glory. I think the year's of poor management by United Utilities has finally taken it's toll and the area's going to decline in quality quickly over the next few years.

Finished off the pads I started yesterday, splendid, back to spending 20-30quid a week on pads.. thankfully in one week's time I'll only be riding the sofa.
