D: 14.1km
A: 40m

Twas a muggy night that saw Gav, Downie and I astride our single speed steeds, a trip to visit yonder Hans' loop was upon our agenda. So travel outwards we did, the rain soaked single track our pathway, our shadows cast by the long afternoon sun our guide. We travelled not with great haste, for the journey was littered with obstacles and for the truth be told none of us could be really arsed. Nay, that not be the truth, for once at the fabled land of Hans we did venture forth and put some power through our pedals. Our steeds did accelerate up the rises and down the descents, they tossed their hair and squirmed round the wet turns giving us all such delight. My own steed, a rambunctious thing, did stop suddenly at one tree stump, tossing me to the ground and then lazing about with such abandon that I was sure it had done it intentionally.

For the journey home, there was some frivolity on the paths for we took it upon ourselves to partake in one legged races. Sir Downie did prove to be more than my match but it was great fun none the less.
