Body Recovery

16 Jan 2008 at 15:47

There was an awful lot of Police activity at the end of the reservoir this lunchtime, a rough count was 11 marked police vehicles, a couple of big vans, a people carrier and a couple of unmarked cars.

They'd also blocked access to the road at either end (I entered from a bridleway), the only reason I could think for this would be for body recovery, I could be wrong, but I think I saw a couple of chap suiting up for a swim.

28.7miles (!3.0 Avg!) | Raining, 5°, Very Grimey

Very mucky ride, little traction, didn't use the rear brake once, because, by the time I got to the pike it no longer worked, so I had to mince into corners or crash and die.. not an easy thing to do but I seem to have developed a technique over the past year for riding with only one stopper.

Better than seeing a chap stripping off for a "final swim".

Yes, around the corner from the Waterman's Cottage (I think that's it's name).
