Gorgeous day for it, so went with the family to Ramsbottom. Left family to ramble up the hill, while I went on an adventure.
Approach to Peel Tower
Looking up at Peel Tower
View towards Manchester from Peel Tower
Natural biking “bowl”
Peel Tower from the back
And so begins the rest of the run
Quick last one of me and Peely before I shoot off.
Starting through the forest trail
This was steeper than it looks in this picture. And slippier.
These cows were mighty skittish
Those things are called “Cairns”. I really should pay attention to where they are, I come across several every run.
So begins the route back to Peel Tower
These two let me get very close before shuffling out of the way
These were standing their ground. Attempted to grab selfie highlighting that. Now it’s just an idiot pulling a face
I really am spoiled by some of the routes around my local area. Gorgeous.
It was great seeing this after I’d passed 3 or 4 of these mysterious flagpoles. Not a single sign from the other direction.
