It’s almost time to break the shackles of the work gulag and escape into the wild, man. But first here’s the Fresh Goods, because it’s Friday and we’re in love.
Creme Holy Moly Solo
Sim’s taken delivery of a lovely tangerine Creme Holy Moly for his equally lovely wife. Handbuilt in Europe and featuring a step through frame, 3 speed hub and wicker basket up front it’s the very essence of the Calderdale idyllic dream.
We’re unsure if she’s going to take it off any sweet jumps…
Price: An SAE and some love.

A long short with soft shell panels to shed the worst of wind and water. The Ardent also features long length zips for ventilation and a high back for comfort in the saddle.
Haglöfs Grit short
A DWR treated, full stretch wind and water resistant short with a raised waist panel and s-shaped legs for comfort when pedalling.

That’s it for this week, we’ve left a note under our pillows for the schwag fairy and now we’re off to hit the sweet brown pow of HBK for a dirty weekend of fun.
Catch you on Monday for the Debrief, you’ve got two days of trail slaying to get a good story ready…
