- Good rides today then?
Had an excellent ride round Grizedale-Esthwaite-Satterthwaite-LawsonPark etc yesterday. Was bloody knackered on the last climb though.
Drove past the visitors centre and it looked rammed but hardly anyone else out on the trails. Got a few funny looks cos I had forgotten my helmet. 😯Posted 9 years agocrispy baconMember
I had a great ride from home on a local ride today & it was fantastic. Most of the trail was dry & there wasn’t too much wind about in E.Cornwall. It was up to a local high point so my legs are aching a bit now with all the climbing. Off to Haldon tomorrow with two mates for a blast on the cheeky stuff, I hope the rain stays away 😀Posted 9 years agoSurfrMember
Had a lovely ride out on some of the Nant-yr-Arian trails on my new Merlin Malt 2. Having not had a new MTB since 2000 I was amazed at how things had progressed.Posted 9 years agothefallguyMember
Rode Cut Gate early doors, trail was in good condition aprt from the top peat bog section which was a mire, wind really picked up as I left the shelter of the langsett woods. I found Mickleden Edge harder than normal, blame the wind for blowing me off line and having to dab at various sections, nothing to do with lack of skill!?. Didn’t see any other bikers though, they don’t know what they’ve missed.Posted 9 years agoBoardinBobSubscriber
A gentle Glentress blue and freeride today with some friends and their kids. Loads of smiles and even a tinsy bit of air on the tandem
Ah so it was you 😆
I was doing the climb up from the osprey and some people around me spied someone on a tandem descending further up the trail. It caused much hilarity and questioning.Posted 9 years agoSoupMember
Had a cracker with Soup Jnr. He’s only 8 but we covered 23 miles and he had his worst crash yet. In his words ‘I was going too fast to think about using my brakes’. I turned round to see him fly over a load of roots and then swerve left and right about 8 times before piling into a bank still at full speed. Once the crying finally stopped and he was bandaged up, he got back on the bike and said ‘That was really cool!’ That’s my boy!Posted 9 years agoNZColSubscriber
A brutal hot whipping in 80kmh winds and sun in Wgtn – home, jville, skyline ridge then a lap in Makara mtb park, then wrights hill then i was spanked so rode home from there – 5 hours. Home, food, snooze in the sun on the rug until the missus dumped a glass fo iced water on me and took me for a swim in the sea !Posted 9 years agomolgripsSubscriber
Saturday – Cwmcarn in the warm sunshine. Equalled my personal best on the Twrch trail.. but on my 31lb Patriot! So that’s about 15 minutes off my previous best on that bike. Yeeha! Then Saturday, a lovely 3 hour ride with some new trails on Machen Mountain, then to the Velodrome on Sunday evening for a mess about with the clubs.Posted 9 years ago
