    Is Drumlanrig a muddy hell at the moment?

    Thinking about popping down tomorrow morning…

    Those roots. The recent rain.

    You're a brave man.

    I got me some Big Earls, so bravery is not a factor :o)

    Hmm leave at 8am, two rides of the red, back for lunch. Have committed myself to a weekend of DIY so have a busy day tomorrow and need to be back at a reasonable time.

    Are you on the stage?

    Not the best place to go then really. 😕 My bike looked like this the last time I rode round there in the wet:

    When it's muddy it's a nightmare (and damaging), but when it's damp it's actually quite good fun. However, there's a fine line between damp dirt and wet dirt… At least you can see how much travel you're getting.

    LOL at Kit

    How come I got slated yesterday for asking exactly the same thing?

    Inconsistent bunch on here!! 🙄

    Maybe because Drumlanrig is more like a natural trail with lots of roots and mud so it actually has some different conditions, unlike a hardpack gravelled trail centre like Glentress? 🙂

    There's a decent bike wash at Drumlanrig so you don't have to take your bike home muddy if you don't want to…

    oh yeah so there is, i forgot about that.

    and also the best damn carrot cake this side of glentress.

    (organic, don't listen to this lot. i once got slated for asking what tyres work best on a singlespeed 🙄 , go figure!)

    8am's probably a bit too early but if I wake up early and I'm up for I'll fire you a text. If I do I'll drive myself down as that means I can pop in and see the 'rents on the way home and kill two birds with one stone!

    Aye no problem bob, that makes sense. I know it's an early start but the only way I can fit everything in :o/

    Have a Halloween party tomorrow night – Dr Evil is making a special appearance.
