It’s not usually sunny around here but today is an exception, We needed milk so no additional excuse needed for an early morning ride. The bridge at Pottarch is a cracker, with the river Dee flowing peaty beneath. The salmon season is underway for those that can afford it and when they’re not biting you can always retreat to the bothy. Still cold with a hard frost and icy mist at river level. Not for the first time I’m glad I fitted those heated grips.
