HAD to get out of the city - the city was killing me.
never been a city fan but equally never one to write something off without trying it.
With that in mind moving to the city onto one of the busiest roads probably wasnt clever !
Now jaynes been given a job at mearns academy which gave me the perfect excuse to get out.
now live right on the trails of drumtochty , fetteresso , durris and swanley hill with a trail network of a couple hundred miles(which will expand once i get started building) all in varying from fire road flowing technical singletrack DH to steep rocky 500m height gain climbs.
the trail head is at my door really - no road work at all to get onto them
we also gained at least double the space of our old flat for 125 quid a month more .... - an extra bedroom , a larger kitchen lounge and bathroom. as well as the quality of the furniture and finishings being about a billion times better.
You know the landlord cares about this place - esp after the vetting process we undertook...
