- Anybody not riding today? Feels damn cold/man up?
Bitter here in Prestatyn today, managed ~8 miles with ~700 feet climbing on a basic out and back route, so I didn’t have to rely on checking Google Maps during the snow storm… First proper winter’s day for me this season, so glad to be back in the warm and dry after ~35mins riding!Posted 2 months agonorthernsoulSubscriber
Went out yesterday afternoon/early evening, local trails. First ride I’ve done with lights this year, which added to the enjoyment. Cold but little wind, almost full moon, and few people around, plus copious mud = much sliding around and a good time. Took ages to remove the mud though…Posted 2 months agokayla1Member
It’s nice a bright here, so we’re off out in a bit for some hardcore, sweaty & steamy two-up action. We’re taking the tandem out to my OH’s mam and dad’s for Sunday dinner. I’m struggling to motivate myself to ride at the minute though, the cold doesn’t really bother me as much as grey skies and sloppy trails (and the accompanying mudguards) do. Everything just seems like a bit of a slog at the minute.Posted 2 months agoMing the MercilessSubscriberView this post on Instagram

Lovely autumnal sunshine quickie, couple of hill climb maximal efforts and I’m shot after 10 miles (gin last night didn’t help)Posted 2 months agocorrodedMember
50 miles around the Downs on the gravel bike today. Still wearing shorts but broke out the fleecy ear muffs for the first time this year – the best bit of winter kit I own except perhaps my MT90 boots. Everywhere, lane or bridleway, was slippery but the beech trees made it worth it. It’s the perfect season for gravel bikes – staying off the muddiest tracks it’s easy to average 15mph though the G-Ones are a bit out of their depth grip-wise.Posted 2 months agothestabiliserMember
Well, if this is due facto riding thread I can concur it was lovely in the sun but chilly out of it. Saw my first bit of ice as I was hurtling down to Ulpha, squeek! Pedalled out to seathwaite, met fam for a walk up on to Wallabarrow then peday back. Kiln bank nearly saw me off, relentless bastard that it is..Posted 2 months agoP-JayMember
Did ride yesterday, but cut it short. Even on the mad-made trail we were on it was full of frigid puddles, managed about 15k and called it a day.
I’ve had a tough few weeks, it’s far better for me to ride Saturdays, my Daughter is in Gym most of the day with my Wife anyway so it gives us Sunday together, but for the last few weeks Saturday has been awful and Sunday quite nice, hope it switches soon.Posted 2 months ago

Drop me a note for a ride any time mate 🙂
Where were you that was bad? The nicely surfaced path in the Whips that I usually ride has become a stream now, I think that the stream higher up the hill has become diverted or something. Might need to fix it!Posted 2 months agoMarkBrewerMember
Got the bike out of the garage earlier and dropped the seat post for a quick ride around and it didn’t come up again! I’d already decided I was going to triscombe for some dh anyway so wasn’t too much of a problem, just had to push up everywhere.
Was a bit slippery in places but wasn’t as muddy as I’d expected after all the rain over the last few days.Posted 2 months agokittyrMember
Wasn’t that bad down saaaf this weekend.
Muddy and cold (and then wet) mtb in Epping on Saturday. To be fair it was a bit grim after the rain started and it’s the first time this year I’ve been head to toe covered in mud.
Sunny Sunday roadie ride out to Essex and back, only my feet were a bit cold.Posted 2 months ago
