A motley crew of Dibbfest riders took to the muddy paths along Enton Lakes and across Hambledon Church bridleways to Hydon’s Ball.
A slow and sludgy 20K ride, with some deep gloopy mud baths meant plenty of chain choke and some frustrated peddling uphill. Of course whizzing across Enton Golf Course is always fun, until the bridleway meets the stream and pretty much becomes a sludge bath!
There were a few fast downhill rides – notably through the juniper woods, and also out of Hascombe woods. We needed the sheer downhill momentum to plough through the mud!
