- (Innerleithen) Oh good, it's snowing again……
Well, thought today was going to be the first day since before Xmas I was going to get out for a "proper" ride.
The Alpine Winter series round 1 was cancelled over the weekend, and now I wonder how the 2nd round is going to fare.
Properly fed up as the novelty of "riding" in snow has well and truly worn thin!
Any suggestions?Posted 10 years agostevehSubscriber
The weekends problem was the -10 overnight temperatures the snow itself was fine. I was in the first couple of people down the course on saturday morning and it was fine. Second run down an hour later, a load of riders down the hill, everything polished up and no grip anywhere.
Went down pretty hard on the first corner and apparently just looked surprised about it 🙂Posted 10 years ago
Same here initially ok but quickly developed into an ice rink.
I think everyone was pretty surprised at the conditions. At the chute from the fire road I saw a guys bike shoot right out from under him a full 180 degrees and land on top of him. Now that's what I call getting your weight back 🙂
People were even crashing on the flat wide open bits!
Point is, this snow isn't going to help the thaw is it?Posted 10 years agoGrimyMember
Just booked a cottage in Innerleithen for the first week of march. Myself and two of my mates all turn 30 that week 😯 so were dragging our Gf's up there for a bit of riding, drinking, etc. 8)
Can any locals pass on any tips for riding that area, and what the best pubs are! lol. The girls are gonna need something to do while were out on the bikes too.Posted 10 years agomr plowMember
Rode Inners red on Saturday and thought it was magic with the icey snow. Just hard enough to take a bikes weight and opened up a whole load of new lines up and down the hill. I took one excellent line about 5ft away from the trail off the moor and had to emergency hop a burn while laughing out loud.
Wondered who the huge group was – I passed you while you waiting just before heading along the fireroad to Caddon Bank.Posted 10 years ago
