My power link absconds in the middle of a quagmire


Today sun came out again so I headed for the South Downs.   This time I started at the Jack and Jill car park and explored the tracks between Ditchling Beacon and the Chattri.

Many people had the same idea and it was great to see  families out for a Sunday walk with their children running around and playing, dog walkers being pulled along,  and a few fellow cyclists having a slippery time – it just slowed everything down. I also met up with the Mrs half way round and cycled while she walked.

There is something lovely about the colour of the sky and the grass on days like this.



Alas my chain broke while I was pedalling through a long wet muddy section bringing me to an abrupt halt. The Power Link just did a runner. Fortuitously  I had a spare and was up an off again in 5 mins.
