Check the Pic , mostly dirt , Flipping wind and lotsa dust with little vissability on the way back.
But a very cool route.
Sorry to hear abour your toe !
There must be an easier way of getting out of a ride though or certainly , less painfull way ?

Hope it heals soon , that big toe fracture is FLIPPING sore !! I know !!!

Thanks for the picture of the route, Andy660, and an indication of the distance travelled, Crossed-up. Strong wind, lots of dust and poor visibility can be testing! I'm glad you had a great day's riding and are all home safely.
