After taking a break from running over the summer, yesterday I dropped my teenage son off at his bus stop and drove to my favorite morning run site ~ only to find an official notice of a bridleway closure for 6 months to allow resurfacing of the road section to the reservoir, - they have dug my run up - starting on Monday of this week. I was bereft! I had been looking forward to the runs starting again in Sept, only to be dealt this body blow.
OK, I live on Dartmoor where there are masses of good runs, but this was traffic free, quiet, by a tumbling river and was mine. I suspect that the closure will be shorter than the 6 months as South West Water need access, but I love that run!
My bike is now going to see even more activity than usual.
