Dropping off the edge


Longdon Edge was gorgeous last Saturday. A great ride.

Here’s one for Trevor in Aus and all the folks who enjoy the ride cams. I’ve been meaning to do this one all week, and today’s postings fell victim to the festivities, so this is as good a chance as any, really.

This ride was recorded last Saturday, when I rode to Rugeley over Longdon Edge. It starts near Farewell, and runs through Stoneywell, past Georges Hayes, through Red Hill, Upper London and down to Breretonhill. It’s speeded up by just under 4x and took about 20 minutes originally – it’s a great ride and one I know well. The last stretch downhill on the A51 is always a blast.

The music is a version of the Dave Matthews Band’s wonderful ‘Two Step’ by American college vocal band The Middleburg Dissipated Eight.

    Shame about the chap that had to carry his bike on the back of the car.
