Must have been rather a lot of fairy liquid in the water being discharged into the Ping going by the lather

Hopefully it was only the one tree cut down

Its much preferable riding through the trees

A few fish farms were spotted along the Ping

I tried a short cut but it soon turned to unpaved then came to a dead end

At this point I was getting dangerously close to the 108 and needed to take evasive action to avoid meeting it

This interesting wooden bridge is only for bikes but is wide enough for two going opposite ways at once

My GPS shows this as a bridge but I cant remember what it was made from as its going back a good few years when I mapped here
