anyone else looking forward to the weekends ride?
Oh yes. I moved house a few weeks ago and am currently exploring the trails out of the door on a freshly fettled bike.
Went through a lot of pain to get to this point but being able to roll wheels out of the garage and be on bridleways within two minutes makes it all worthwhile.Posted 3 years agocbmotorsportMember
Will be staying local this weekend, only able to do Sunday, but I’m really looking forward to a long ride. I’ve had the last 8 weeks off the bike and the rest has done me the world of good, I have a new found excitement for riding again, and miraculously my fitness hasn’t dropped off as much as I thought it would.
Also bought a new bike back in October, and due to the awful weather haven’t ridden it much over the winter (rode the HT) and I’ve realised just how good it is on dry trails.Posted 3 years ago
Me and a few of the lads are heading over to do the borrowdale bash for the first time, weather looks typically lakes like with rain but i don’t care. I’m going to the lakes with some of my best mates, to ride some of the best riding the uk has to offer and on a bike I’m really enjoying riding right now. Sunday cant come soon enough.

Ronde Van Calderdale, 77 miles and approx 3300m of climbing, most of it on 20+% gradient cobbled roads.Posted 3 years ago
Did it last year and it was my ride of the year.
This year its forecast to rain. Skinny tyres, rim brakes, wet steep cobbles, what could possibly go wrong 😯binnersSubscriber
Hebdon for us in the morning!
Wild rumours were circulating that The Enigma himself would be joining us to complain of another set of malfunctioning forks down the Blue Pig, but alas, he loves me no more, and I must try and put this devastating realisation to the back of my mindPosted 3 years agobjj.andy.wMember
Looking forward and dreading it in equal measures. Doing a training run for the Fred Whitton tomorrow around the Bowland fells, Lancashire. Same distance and climbing (112miles, 13000ft) but without the inclines of Hardknott. Weather doesn’t look good so it’ll be great training for a months time.Posted 3 years ago
