    Out after kids down and planning to ride like I stole it or atleast borrowed it without asking first. Less than a week before the evenings start heading the wrong way though.

    All geared up and just sat waiting to see if my mate is coming – then off for a Beeley/Chatsworth blast

    Did the Cutgate out and back last night and saw more people than I’ve ever seen up there before, 8 in total. Conditions are as near to perfect as you’ll get with only one or two soft spots that are easily avoidable.

    Out again tomorrow but staying local, the forest is going to be mint as even the wettest bits must have dried out by now. Tonnes of other dry stuff to play on locally so it’ll be a great night whatever

    Not a ride, but was recce’ing a route for a family friendly walk for the weekend later on last night, just me and the dog…. and a deer, some rabbits, Mr fox, and loads of pheasants. And a proper babbling stream with a bridge and ford option so the kids and dads can get wet feet and the mums can get cross but not really mean it. And that little bit through the woods might need poaching one evening, just because it’s there πŸ˜‰

    Back just as it got dark, dog will be getting a few more evening walks if the weather stays like this. Some may end up near pubs (only thing missing last night). If you take the dog to the pub, it’s not drinking alone, is it?

    Dusty Mendip, mostly faster, steeper stuff. With Candodavid

    They do indeed rock. I can’t get enough of riding my bike at the minute. My legs are sore, scratched and stung, but I still want to head out tonight. Plus I don’t need dinner when I get in as I fill up on flies on the way round.

    Can you move the Lakes a bit further South please Tomaso. ’bout 50 miles would do.
    As it is Helvellyn’s just a bit far for us southern softies so we’ll have to make do with Longridge Fell tonight.

    I had a quick 27 miles last night. Easy trails, nothing tough or challenging. Riding out to the trails the roads were empty, there was no one in the forest…no horsey folk, no dog walkers, no bike riders, just deer and hares and birds. On the road ride back there was one roadie coming the other way (cheery wave and a hello for ‘roadies don’t wave’ types) and one car. That was it….full stop.

    The trails were dry and hard, the sun was out, it was warm and practically ideal. The only downer was a stiff wind on the out leg. Still, it helped when I turned for home!

    You gotta love the World Cup and fine summer evenings.

    Local ride last night up at rivi was awesome, perfect weather, dry trails (a new one as well!) a few other likeminded souls, views to die for and a very very red sunset. Bloody brilliant.

    Where’s that chakaping?

    Got a sneaky 2 hours round Ashridge done last night, riding a treat it was.

    Great stuff, even the roadies we spotted when we stopped for a chin-wag were uncharacteristically chirpy.

    Where’s that chakaping?

    Arley Wood / Worthington sort of area – so you may know it if local to Rivi.

    Midge crazy at the moment though in the evening. Don’t stop. I’ve been bitten to shreds over the last month, even just stopping for a minute.

    Still a blast though. Busy round my way. Get out in the day and it’s quite quiet, and fantastic weather.

    Thought you were local chaka that’s why I asked πŸ™‚ Nah, ridden the canal and ncn near there but not ventured into the woods.

    Heading along the canal from Red Rock, take a left on first (or second just after) proper track into woods – nice fast downhill and then there’s some meandering singletrack down off to the left that runs along with the brook.

    Some of it’s a bit awkward but still worth a look. Very pleasant on a sunny day. I sometimes add it on way back from Haigh Hall.

    Are you local to there?

    26.5 miles tonight from just south of Winchester and taking a part of the SDW in.

    Really cracking ride, 5 middle aged mates reverting to childhood! πŸ™‚

    Lights only needed for last half hour and so warm a race jersey was warm enough.

    It was a fair drive north to Glennriding and it doesn’t get any closer Ian. But by ‘eck it was worth it πŸ˜‰
    No photos of Sticks Pass as too busy riding it but these are the photos of the hard bit – and I can only apologise about the bearded postman in some of the shots…

    @tomaso – very jealous, stunning.

    Had a brilliant ride – got this years OTB out of the way with a nice soft boggy (but wet) landing – only a bruised calf to show for it.

    Kept pushing my mate who normally drops me downhill – picked up a nice KOM/288 – and a dubious 3rd on a 5 minute long DH/slight uphill/pedal like fook/DH – how my mate beat me by 4 seconds when he started in front of me and I overtook him, I’ll never know πŸ˜‰

    Had a laugh, dodged the nettles, rode till we nearly collapsed, drank beer.

    One day of work left, then BPW…. πŸ™‚

    @tomaso – looks fantastic #jealous
