  • How was your ride today?

    Did 2-3 hours around Brocton and Cannock off piste and really enjoyed today. Weather was excellent and met some nice runners and mtbers. Not even an OTB into a bog leaving me, my bike…and now my car stinking could dampen my spirits.

    Great stress relief for my impending job application. 🙂

    How was yours?

    An hour around the local woods and back just in time for the start of the tour. Bloody great day 🙂

    I took the opportunity to fettle instead. Bike has been built for over a year and at last the steerer is cut to length.

    First ride back after a week in the alps. Alps – no proper crashes. Today on my local stuff – but being shown a new trail – ended up OTB on a rock step that apparently the ‘line is to the left’, Useful information but delivered a little late 😉 Bruised ribs, banged my monged shoulder, treated it with beer. Still a damn good day to ride in the sunshine.

    We even missed a localised thunderstorm by staying int the pub 🙂

    Out in the Clwyds, lots of sunshine with a 15 minute hailstorm in the middle for that invigorating pummelled feeling.

    Went out on the road bike feeling not in the mood, ended up staggering back in from a 53 mile ride with tired legs and a big grin on my face. Big climb in the middle, followed by some delicious fruitcake at the café stop, and average speed pretty good given the climb.

    Then I uploaded it to Garmin Connect and discovered that a mate of mine up in Manchester has been sneaking out at 6am the last few weekends and banged out some 60, 70 and today a 100 mile ride.

    Which must be why he is suggesting the C2C in one day next June….. 👿

    I was up bright and early in Llanberis! 4:30am start and down by 7:30 after climbing Snowdon then riding down. Would recommend it to anyone!

    First ride for a couple of weeks as I’ve been on family hols. A lovely couple of hours on Leith hill and then a surprise front wheel washout in a puddle and a twatted knee. It’s left me almost unable to walk and wondering whether to go to A&E. Bugger.

    Went for a 1hr fast cx training ride but couldn’t find my normal helmet so used my pisspot instead. I think it actually baked my skull.

    Was good though!

    Similar to MoreCashThanDash went out on the road bike. Not feeling it for the first hour or so. Then ended up doing 130km.

    As an ending to the ride, 50m from turning into my driveway, some knob in a burgundy Honda atrocity pushes past me. Parked cars on both sides, and he takes a gap in front of a driveway to overtake. Unbelievable. I don’t normally rise to it, but I called him a rude word and gave him the coffee beans.

    Stunning Sunday roadie club run. The best part of 70 with a hilly start and then an epic 20 mile chaingang on the flat to top it off. Painful but really enjoyable.

    Good bash around innerleithen today, pretty short but fun. Excellent combination of dry fast bits and greasy puckery bits.

    Usual 100 miles/7.5hrs off road round the Surrey Hills! Great to be back on the trails after 3 months away racing every weekend.

    A very ‘sociable’ spin around the Marin. Not complaining after what has been a packed week of riding. In foul mood at beginning of week. All is now well with the world!

    More of a night ride for me but technically finished today. Left home at 8:30pm and arrived back at 4am after riding around curbar, calver, chatsworth etc. just in time to see the sun rise. Bit tired on 2 hours sleep but well worth it 🙂

    Close to perfect. 3 hours round Swiss side of mossettes – clear skies and lots of downhill for not much pedalling. Then dropped down into les lindarets for lunch – a couple of hours in chatel bike park before heading back to the chalet via a stop for beers at lake montriond. Bbq and a few more beers finished the day off quite nicely.

    Brilliant 28mile XC ride with daftvader north of Basingstoke, I was following, so please excuse the lack of specifics, however, it was a fab ride, sunshine, light summer shower which coincided beautifully with our path being sheltered by a long copse of trees 8) . He’s a very good and clever guide to arrange that indeed!

    Awesome, took the old VW van and bike 30mins up the road for a few laps of Cwm Rhaeadr!

    If you haven’t been there. Do it. Go NOW…go on…go on!!! 😀

    sweet and functional

    took the kids into town in the trailer to the supermarket which is pretty much part of the daily routine..

    what was unusual is that we didn’t faff about, I didn’t make them endure a pointless drag along the seafront or along the cycle track.. we just got into town, shopped and went home..

    the ambience was enhanced by an ace shower of rain which we viewed from the canopy of a bakery in town, and the fact that when we went downstairs, the guy doing the gardening in the communal gardens outside our block of flats was a bloke from my tutor group at school who I haven’t seen for 25 years and we had a proper good chinwag..

    proper xc ride tomorrow evening 🙂
