Through the nettles and around the rubbish dump

Today’s random bike ride took me around the picturesque Welbeck Landfill, following the overgrown paths along the river. While not the most visually pleasant of rides, it has enough excitement in the form of giant holes in the path and lots and lots of nettles to keep the mind focussed. Popping out in the expensive looking hamlet of Kirkthorpe is always a surprise. I might make this a regular ride, it’s just under 4 miles and takes around half an hour to do. Could be fun in the dark.
