    oh nice pics.
    Work kept me back late tonight so I missed out.
    My legs are burnt from the last 2 nights rides and they could do with a rest anyway.
    Gonna thrash them again tomorrow night I think if the weather holds out. Forecast looks good :mrgreen:

    Just a quick road/bridleway ride on my “new” bike. Feels great and somehow managed to get a very similar average speed to that of my road bike, despite it having fat 26″ tyres, a lot heavier and 34-15 gearing.

    Nice. I decided to stay at home and paint the fence instead!
    Where is the singletrack in that second picture?

    Just above Anglezarke reservoir

    Oooh I love Healy nab when it’s dry.

    No biking for me tonight, but a whole week of riding coming up, hope the trails stay dry.

    Was on my way out but stopped for a quick front mech fettle and somehow hamfistedly snapped it 🙁 end of ride before I’d left the garden – I’d usually have just picked up the singlespeed but I bust the freehub last week on that -double 🙁 🙁
    So it been an evening of fettling with the rest of the bike instead (and some vino) ((and Chinese))

    Sunshine, warmth, dry trails 🙂 Anyone else out this evening?

    Couldn’t agree more – was having a great ride, then the gear cable for my rear mech snapped! Luckily I only had about 8 miles left to get home & had done most of the hills

    Yep. Lovely evening. Went out on the road bike and did some hill reps.

    Not hot nor cold.

    Yep fantastic evening of riding despite work nearly killing it at the 11th hour!

    Following an early evening summer shower, we rode more cheeky than Rick Wallers toilet. plenty of NT woods & wet root slidy stuff. All finished off with a pint or two of Adnams Broadside & a Chicken Rogan Josh

    Simon – was the Nab actually dry? Ive not been up for a while even though its right by my house because it was just thick gloop before!

    Is that 2nd one the cheeky bit of riding that you start from down by the watermans cottage by the route from white coppice?

    Youve definately pursuaded me to get out tonight!

    Crispo – yes & yes

    Getting your mtb mojo back Simon ? Nice one matey. Love that track round the headland and the ST through the fields. Makes a great nightime run.

    Out tonight.. on my new bike!! so excited! Feel like a 5 year old. Weather looks ace too.

    Rode out of Coniston last night and it was lovely. Great ride and the only downer was the extra protein gained from ingesting midges.

    Yup I went out last night too. Took my rebuilt lefty for a spin on one of my fave local thrashes…

    Done some photos but can’t load from here.. Picasa anyone??

    Still moist and muddy here in Glasgow and the peak daytime temperature has yet to reach the dizzy heights of the nightime temperatures down south.

    crispo/simondbarnes – how do you get to the start of that trail?

    I won’t post a link here as it’s a footpath but it’s pretty obvious if you look at a map.

    Skyline and Whites at Afan today – heavenly. Had a big off though – think I got away with it. Damn GoPro makes me push too hard – I never crash when I’m not wearing it.
