Am i dreaming? Where did you ride today?
33 miles on the singlespeed yesterday, including a sneaky peek at the new IOW MTB circuit at Cheverton Down, and the Wayfarers IOW randonee today. A 100k lap of the Isle of Wight. Beautiful day. Sparkling seas, blue skies, lovely home made cake in various village hall food stops, but just enough of a wind to give me a snottery nose the whole way round.

Cracking ride over Cut Gate:Posted 4 years ago
2015-05-05 by SamDexter, on Flickr Was over Cut Gate myself this morning with a mate (possibly saw you pass as I was seated on one of the cairns – guy on a black soul in any case), riding great – one of those days where it feels like the finest trail in the Peak. N America was like a cricket pitch.chiefgrooveguruMember
Did Stanmer – Wild Park – Stanmer – Blackcap and back yesterday. Started in the rain (lethal wet teflon roots vs super grippy tacky dirt), finished in the dry after 26.5 miles and 3000’+ of climbing across the finest local DH runs and singletrack. Almost there with doubling up rollers and gaps, I can feel my brain finally starting to trust me… My singletrack flow at race pace has become nicely three dimensional in the last fortnight! Still aching…Posted 4 years agovincienupSubscriber
Hamsterley forest with mates.
Trails were good and the muddy climbs were dry.
There was someone trying to push a child in pushchair up a red run though – REALLY found this at the bottom of Brainfreeze – girl with proper rabbint in headlights at horde of fast mountain bikes on final descent of a fast (marked) mountainbike trail. My mates came across another family letting their small kids on scooters play around on a section of clearly marked trailhead that could well have had bikes crossing at speed onto.
Also a group of people partway up a fastish singletrack descent trying to push their bikes back up – no idea what that was about – maybe sessioning but not wise in the middle of a busy day. At least stay off the trail if you’re doing this!
Great day at Hamsterley though as always!Posted 4 years ago
