Bye bye dry trails!
Ground was saturated on Sunday, made a quick six mile ride into a total slog fest, that and riding over the frozen snow left over from a few weeks ago. Spring won’t be on it’s way until it’s dry enough for the kids to set fire to the moors above Bacup, usually around the Easter holidays.Posted 4 years agohighlandmanMember
Low level trails in Angus are ace just now, fast grippy ‘hero dirt’ but anything above the Strath (valley floor) is just like Yeti said, either still under old snow banks or suffering from meltwater run off. Farmers around here are furuously ploughing to get something done while the water table is more than a few inches below the surface. Looks like we’ll be back to normal from about Thursday.Posted 4 years agocookeaaSubscriber
Yep the weather is nice round here at the minute.
But I’ve had the Bastard Flu for most of this week (still not shifted it fully, but now back at work) the missus was ill with the same thing the week before that, so I was on Daddy duty, all of which means by the time i get back on a bike I’ll be as weak as a kitten and it’ll be pissing down again…Posted 4 years agowatsontonyMember

After riding through the worst weather all winter, I broke the forks on my new bike a couple of weeks ago (on a ridiculously muddy and wet night ride). I sent them back under warranty and have been MTB-less for the entire dry spell. Absolutely gutted. I have to keep telling myself not to ride the Cotic that is all cleaned up, serviced and up for sale!Posted 4 years agomrelectricSubscriber
Had a good 2 1/2 hr wander around Baildon Moor which is the driest for ages (6months??). Its a great time of year to be out there, before the bracken chokes many paths and visitors litter the place up.Posted 4 years ago
However, I had to WALK it as my back is is spasm following a coughing injury…
