- Easter weekend not riding thread
What are you all up to?
Me? Working all through it (nice private woodland full of bluebells so don’t feel sorry for me) having finished for the day I’m currently sat in the garden drinking many bottles of cider house special. Thanks to work I’ve missed out on family trip to Blenheim Palace, I bet it’s heaving there!
I *may* go for a bimble after work tomorrowPosted 4 months agoVortexracingSubscriber
sorting the back garden out which has (and is still) including
power washing the decking & Patio, sealing the decking, sanding and sealing the patio,
Getting the outdoor furniture out & oiling it, getting the BBQ out and cleaning it, sorting the shed out and building this Ratton furniture stuff she has bought.
oh and mowing the lawn

I did get a ride in yesterday though 🙂Posted 4 months agofossyMember
Relaxing at our caravan. Did a training ride Thursday, but last 3 days have been bumbling about with family on bikes. Went out for 9 miles with my 73 year old dad today for bacon butty and tea by the coast (North Wales). All slow paced.
Got a BMC fourstroke 29er for my wife from a mate for a good price, so shes been getting used to it from a hybrid.
My son has been robbing it mainly. Came with an unused reverb, all SLX and XT, is XS in size so just fits my wife. Like new condition.Posted 4 months agoDracSubscriber
Newcastle yesterday for food for my eldest 16th luckily she has good taste so it was sushi from an independent restaurant. Sat in the sun the sun with my girls in the best city in the UK chilling out. Then back to catch the end of the local cricket match. This am we’ve just been in the cricket nets for a bit practice, heading out soon for a few beers.Posted 4 months agoNorthwindSubscriber
I’m planning my First Proper Ride in a long time for tomorrow- 2 injuries on top of each other means I’ve not been able to do it properly since November, though I’ve done a bunch of short local rides. And my legs are going to die so today I’m just chilling.
Going to build a wheel in the sun next for the dh bikePosted 4 months agowrightysonMember
As for the weekend, I did manage to ride yesterday thankfully. We’re now all going to walk in to town to our lovely little local cinema which thankfully sells cold beer and watch captain marvel. Not ideal some would say with the weather like this but we’ve been spanking the outdoors since Thursday lunchtime so it will be a nice reprieve out of the sun.Posted 4 months agotonMember
built a new Asgard 6 bike security shed on friday, with the help of my son. it is like fort knox for bikes.
yesterday i made a water butt into a very hefty bike anchor, by filling with 200kgs of concrete and 100kgs of hardcore, with a ground anchor submerged in it, to secure bikes to.
as a treat, we cycled into town earlier for a feast of chilli chicken udon, and prawn dumplings.
now chilling watching movies.
a good weekend, and i also now feel well after 2 weeks of illness.Posted 4 months agowelshfarmerSubscriber
Friday a load of us went to the Black Mountains Cycle Centre (considering it is only 5 miles away we should go more often really!). Spent the day progressing my jumping culminating in happily clearing the 14 foot (paced out) gap jump at the bottom. Yesterday and today i’ve been busy welding girders and erecting them into the front end of my new workshop. Hot and sweaty work. Tomorrow a load of us are planning a mega tour of the Black Mountains taking in as many of the tops as we can. Reckon on 45 miles and 2500 m of climbing. Water may become an issue!Posted 4 months agostumpy01Member
Friday to Belton House with friends and did the Cadburys Easter egg hunt with the kids and monumental amounts of playing in the adventure playground.
Saturday a bit of this and that, but just relaxing at home mainly. Did some gardening and cut the grass.
Had the in-laws round for lunch today and spent the day messing around in the garden.
Tomorrow got a road ride planned with a suitably positioned coffee stop, followed by swimming lesson in the afternoon with my daughter.
Also been trying to get a new NAS drive set-up at home; never had one before so it’s a bit of a learning curve
I’ve got some rigid forks to fit to my Inbred, but the weather is too nice for fiddling with those. Might get round to it tomorrow afternoon but probably won’t.Posted 4 months agogallowayboySubscriber

DIY here too.
The Mrs bought a load of fitted warderobe bits off eBay which had been taken out a new build house when the developers put the wrong color ones in the wrong rooms.
Putting them up was like making a huge jigsaw where you have never seen the finished picture and aren’t totally sure whether you’ve got all the bits. While it’s lovely and sunny out and all your mates are riding every second of each of the four days, if Strava and Instagram are to be believed.
Meh.Posted 4 months ago
