The Red Clay !!

Myself, Barftone and Steve went out to do some lanes in Herefordshire today, glorious weather but still wet underwheel and plenty of mud as we found out later

Cracking lane to start with, about five miles long and varying conditions, here's one of the nicer bits.............



On this lane we had to stop and wait for a horse rider, the lane drops away from what you can see in this photo with some tasty rock steps....



Onto the next one which has a deceptive stream crossing as the slab rock is very slippery, Tony first.....



and then Steve..........



Times must be hard for the local HA, I'm loving this hand-painted byway sign..........



and onto another classic sunken lane............



Steve passing a natural obstacle........



and Tony's turn..........



and then we hit the lane with the red clay, the forestry vehicles had been in here and turned it into a total bog. The photo looks a bit misty but that's because my camera was by now covered in water and mud!!!




in this photo you can see that my sidestand is not even down but the bike is just held upright in the thick red clay



after this we dropped down to Hay-on-Wye for a much needed coffee and sarnie. After luch we headed up onto the Begwyn hills.......




and then a couple more befor heading back to the van via a rather nice little pub with some lovely Stowfords Press cider




cheers, Bob.

Thanks for posting
