Man verses Horse Saturday night a post came through via Whatsapp about a Mob MTB ride on following morning buthe forecast was for a winter front to push through turning to rain later did nothing not the most inspiring.

Having Ridden up past Tottington to Holcombe for 9am there was no sign of anyone so a quick check of the phone…
