Bristol Bike Fest
I am doing it solo. Will be my first one am not sure if I am up to it but it should be fun trying.
I just hope the weather is ok. Its rutted as hell and all the exposed roots will be so slippery in the wet. It will take some concentration not to end upside down in a bush i reckon.
Which bike that is the question. Have done 6 or 7 laps at a go on the rigid but hands get a bit sore. It seems a bit silly to use the five though!Posted 8 years agoDelSubscriber
it has a very good record for good weather, but yeah if it rains heavily, the course will be f**king minging.Posted 8 years ago
one point to note – bring plenty of water. i was shocked at how bad the provision of water was the year before last, considering you have a bunch of people riding bikes around, but last year may have been better. ( i was self sufficient ).

lol. Well if you don’t know anyone else there you’re welcome to pitch up with the lvis squad.
Did you ever sell your rocky mountain btw?
In my best Robert de Niro accent
“You talkin’ to me?”
I’ve not yet owned a Rocky Mountain, but there is plenty of time if I hate everything else I’ve got to ride.
Should I bring lots of beer? What if the wife drinks it, I’ll have to drive home sore, grumpy and sober.Posted 8 years agocheers_driveMember
The course is 10 minutes ride from my house so it would be rude not to do it. Doing it a team of 4.Posted 8 years ago
The couse is nice and dry at the moment but is very rutted after the winter which can be a bit ‘uncomfortable’ on a hardtail after a few laps. There are lots of trees, roots and twisty bits so you may want to lose your maganetic attraction soon.
