monday debrief, weekend riding?
Some misty action for me as well in North Wales. A great solo 28 miler in the bag 🙂

32 miles down the Tardebigge canal and out through Droitwich on the canals for me. Thought i’d take the full suss for once to blow the cobwebs off it as it’s sat unused since the ‘summer’. Bad choice, canals were far muddier than i’d been expecting and the rear end clogged up with nasty mud a few times. Enjoyed the ride though. My first use of Strava as well and there’s a segment for the main Locks. 4th at the moment but i shall return in the dry……Posted 5 years ago
Little back lanes bimble on Sunday as well.binnersSubscriber
Lovely tour of a multitude of East Lancs reservoirs yesterday. It seemed that everyone had taken their mums to the pub for mothers day, as the trails were devoid of the usual Sunday walkers, so we used the opportunity to indulge in some serious cheekyness that is normally the exclusive preserve of night rides 😀
When you were out of the biting wind it was lovely, but we rode right into the teeth of it for the last 5 miles which was bloody hard work!Posted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Was booked in for a dirtschool jump day at Glentress on saturday. Got there and found a cold and sheepish looking Mr Barlow, weather too bad to do the course safely- driving horizontal snow, lovely. So what else can you do but go for a quick ride? Zoomed around the red, bits of the black and the blue, some off-map stuff, some more red… Cold weather meant not stopping and pedalling for warmth, so lo, many strava personal bests were obtained that day. Froze solid within 5 minutes of stopping riding at the end. Fab day out really.Posted 5 years agoStefMcDefSubscriber
34 miles, including some extreme cheekiness on the IOW coastal path towards the southern tip of the island. Conditions ranging from balmy spring sunshine glittering on an azure sea to chilly, eerie mist on the tops of the downs. 😀
Snapped a singlespeed chain, fell over and bumped my knee and elbow. 😥
Need to start taking some more pictures for these threads.Posted 5 years agorocketmanMember
Embraced the filth at Cannock on Saturday and quite enjoyed it once I’d accepted it was cold and wet and still winter and no longer dry and dusty and Spring-like
Didn’t seem particularly busy but thanks to everyone who stopped to see if I was OK while I was fixing a puncture karma and all thatPosted 5 years agomangoridebikeSubscriber
First ride in daylight this year for me yesterday, cycled to meet the wife and kids in the forest, had a play with them and cycled home. Got v cold in the middle but it was worth it.
Clear bright day but bitterly cold in the wind. Awesome to be riding through though!Posted 5 years agostilltortoiseSubscriber
Chose MTB over usual Sunday morning road ride with the club. It was blowy and the thin layer of snow gave way to pretty soft and squidgy ground underneath, so the bike got a nice collection of iced up mud on it. Still a fun rode though, which is more than can be said for the lad I was with who had 3 mechanicals and ended up walking home.Posted 5 years agoKitz_ChrisMember
Did 240 km over the weekend on the road. I hoping for some singletrack to be dry in the next few weeks, but for the mean time I’m content to explore the local tarmac. Starting from Innsbruck, I did my best to get to Italy, but even with the recent warm temperatures, there’s still a little bit too much snow to make it over the pass. I’ll be back next weekend to give it another shot.

Bit late in the week with this, but the good news is that it’s almost the weekend again 🙂
When the wind dropped and the snow started to fall more vertically than horizontally last Sunday afternoon I took a trip up Carn Daimh.
A mixture of sunshine and snow showers with ice and snow everywhere underwheel. Only one section unrideable due to a winters worth of deep drifted snow with a not quite cripsy enough top to ride.
Can’t wait for the new Glenlivet Estate trails up there to be finished, nothing is open or rideable yet but the sections I spotted look like they are shaping up very nicely. That hill has a lot of potential.Posted 5 years ago
