Took my bike over to Burrator reservoir yesterday. First time transporting it in my car, I'm now an expert at packing it in! 🚙
I followed a route I found online, starting at Burrator, going around the local Tors to Princetown and then including a supposed MTB trail back down to the reservoir 💦
The first 3/4 was bumpy, but so scenic. A lot of annoying gates at the start though. Once I got out to the open moorland it was incredible! However, the trail named "widowmaker" down to the reservoir turned out to be aptly named. The rocks were enormous, loose and unavoidable. I seriously thought I was going to either break my bike or break myself... Amazingly I made it out of the rocks alive (just), and had a close encounter with some Dartmoor ponies! At the bottom of the trail I found some obstacles and a drop off to finish. I eyed it up then thought I'd give it a go...note to self, if you're not very experienced at MTB yet don't do big drop offs - my front wheel dropped and I was only saved by my suspension otherwise I would have been over the handlebars 🙈
Anyway, it was great fun nonetheless and I'll definitely take my bike out on the moors again 😁
Wheelie impressed with these little legends... today we rode 20kms and they smashed it without any complaints, despite Lakens bike chain falling off 5 million times, Lyra riding with a broken arm and Talens blistered heels. Gunna sleep well tonight 🚴♂️ #wheeliefunday#familyfunday#bikers#greatoutdoors#bikecrew
That moment when you wake up and realise it’s Sunday morning, not Monday morning! 🌄 🙌🏼

Another big weekend of shovelling dirt. But the vegetable beds are filled and ready for planting.
Still have a bit of dirt left over but the back is done for the day 😩 so looks like I will have to do the rest during the week 😱
El pasado mes de abril estuvimos en Islandia y ya quiero volver 🧡 Me gustó mucho el cambio de paisaje después de haber estado varias veces seguidas en Japón, aunque no pudimos ver auroras boreales y uno de mis sueños es fotografiarlas 🥺 Para los que estéis planificando este viaje, os dejo mi itinerario y presupuesto en la bio! ⬆️
