dark and white trailquest this sunday
You wont know until the day, and the guys at D&W have got a great ability to put CP’s out where you least expect them to be!
You ride from straight outside the event centre. 3 hours, penalty points for lateness.
If you’ve got an ounce of competitiveness, those last few miles back to the event centre are some of the fastest you’ll ever ride 🙂Posted 4 years ago
That was great fun 🙂
I got a puncture within the first 40 mins. turns out my spare tube also had a hole in it. Thankfully i’d taken patches and glue, so 12mins later I was rocking again with two patched tubes. I was a bit annoyed with myself to say the least, so turned it into a hard ride for fun. Stupidly rode straight past CP1 on the way back – just straight past the road end. Numpty. Was late anyway so didn’t go back for it. 269 points…Posted 4 years ago
I have a multitude of excuses…
Main one is just my poor route planning, herded myself back towards Matlock too early and finished on 2:40!
Excellent day though, will deffo be doing it again.
One observation though, I didnt think the other riders were particularly friendly. Most of the Male Senior riders were pretty ignorant, not even a smile in response to my cheery ‘Hello’. Think I had more words out of a bunch of roadies that I climbed with!
Also, nice to see the spirit of full length blue ron hills and v-brakes is still alive! 😆Posted 4 years ago
You’re right it doesn’t, and I’m with you on that – I try to acknowledge as much as poss. Sometimes though you’re just thinking about other stuff.
FWIW, when I was stopped fixing my puncture(s) just about everyone who went past asked if I was OK and whether I needed anything.Posted 4 years agophiltricklebankSubscriber
Yeah I find people generally too focussed to return the “hello”s, either that or you are generally going too fast in opposite directions to hear a reply! I too have found people willing to stop and offer help with punctures and mechanicals, affecting their own times in the process Great ride on Sunday, lovely morning for it, and plenty of chat over the tea and biscuits at the end. Great atmosphere 🙂Posted 4 years ago
