This is one of the bonuses of working in the Outdoors. Development time can include fun times like jumping on mountain bikes and heading out for the afternoon. Ok there was a purpose - we were heading out to one of our regular trails to check out some new routes and the general condition of the runs. We also shared some ideas on best tracks to use and how best to manage groups of various ability. All useful stuff but really good fun. This development afternoon was like a tranquil haven in the midst of an otherwise hectic and difficult week.
