    For me this picture just about sums up the most enjoyable ride i did last year.

    Just me and Mrs ssstu out on our own.
    Only saw one other bike. A new route to us and it was a glourious sunny but cold day in february.

    Show us what you’ve got. 😀

    Could have been any day of that week tbh but this was the ride that’ll stick in my head the most I think, even though it wasn’t the ride with the best riding. Somewhere in France, with White Room


    Olympic antidote bridleway bimble.. A cool early August evening, perfect weather, Dartmoor, on my own..
    It was my first ride in a couple of months, first time on a new (to me) bike, and first time on a Cotic Soul..

    I flew everywhere like I was on a magic carpet and the sunset on the way home later that evening was more than spectacular..

    Sometimes it’s the company or surrounds that do it for me too.

    Come on tom.
    Tell us what was special about that ride. 🙂


    Not the best ride Ive been on but one that sticks out the most.solo Sligachan Hotel to Camasuary bothy

    The last proper mtb ride I did in the summer before I got ill, which kept me off bike for 12 weeks. Pic doesnt do it justice really, it’s actually up a pretty big mountain. (Anboto)


    ahem, quick edit, finally Les Arcs in the sun!

    The pic doesn’t do the setting justice but it was one of the most memorable rides ever. Drifty, fine white powder dirt in beautiful evening light around 2000m in the French Alps. Toward the end of a long day, about half-way through a fantastic 12-day bikepacking ride that made my year.

    One picture please. 😉

    End of two week family holiday in Scotland including Glentress, Fort William, Laggan and lots of playing round Aviemore. The last day I got the antidote to trail centres, a 60km solo ride round the Cairngorm from Glenmore Lodge to Glen Feshie. Saw no other bikes and only a handful of walkers, terrific day.

    The view is from the high point of the Lairig an Laoigh looking into Glen Derry


    I am ashamed to say I only did one MTB ride this year….

    Next year (Rodney) it will be very different.

    Four Passes route with my mate Barry in April. Just such an ace day.


    Not the most exciting photo but memories of a great week of riding in Spain, roll on April 2013


    Halfway up what was turning into a bit of a slog, up to the top of the Long Mynd, the clouds suddenly cleared, and the sun shone out. It was the perfect excuse to stop, chuck the bikes down and tuck into some confectionery!!

    Tricky to pick a favourite ride but I think this is my favorite shot of me this year. Taken by our uplift driver and guide (Ash from Sierra Cycling) out of the mini-bus window using my camera!

    No so much a ride but an event, the Dusky Valley 12 in September. Great course, great organisation, great company and we won too!

    Tough one.
    Can I have pictures of my favourite rider this year? My eldest thoroughly enjoyed the tag-along on North Uist:

    It gave the encouragment to have a go himself:

    Only surpassed in happiness by the safe arrival of my youngest son, 4 months old tomorrow 🙂

    4 Days spent doing a double coast to coast with my boy.


    My favourite ride of 2012 was the eight day long one I did around Brittany…….


    Al – you should show me that trail. Looks good.

    Fancy a sunday in April?

    Was about to post exactly the same photo as Soma_Rich 😀

    One of many this year. But to be alone on Mam Tor was pretty special.

    I’ve ridden a fair few places this year but Swinley was great.
    It’s on my doorstep but I never bothered going. Glad I did!
    I’ll be ridding there more often now. Great fun.

    Cricket and bikes. It does not get any better

    Bugger, Instragram link not working on my mobile.


    Alta Badia, Dolomites.

    Sun, mountains, singletrack. Discovered a load of potential for next visit.

    For me it was the Black Mountains 3 day ride in July, in the mud. Hard to choose a fave photo, but this conveys the fun, the mud and the challenge – a great 3 days, loved it…

    grab the bbcode next time 😉


    Probably this one, La Thuile in Italy, partly for the riding, partly for the amazing lunchtime pizza and partly for the ice cream afterwards.

    Not the most fun, most scenic, or fastest ride of my year. Possibly the most important and influential though.

    19th June, just before my birthday. First ride of the summer on Smallblocks. Seemed to ride for hours & it just didnt want to get dark.

    Single best day of riding in my entire life. First day of the Tour Du Mont Blanc, just over the Col du Ferret, with the Lac d’Emosson in the background. Weather was incredible that day, there was very little wind and bluebird skies. With some of my closest riding mates, and the best descent I’ve ever ridden.


    On holiday in Las Vegas, hired a bike and went for a guided ride in Red Rock Canyon…

    (I used these guys and they were really good – recommended)
