- Monday Morning Debrief 44 – Stormageddon edition
I led our predominantly road orientated clubs first MTB ride up around North Leeds and a good time was had by all.
It confirmed its time for mud tires but it also popped my mud cherry and I ended the ride at peace with the fact that this is it now for the next 4-5 months.
Regarding ‘Stormageddon’ I’m think this is Southern softies being all dramatic, looks like a standard Autumn day up North to me.Posted 4 years agojekkylMember
26 miles out on the Cheshire plains, bit of the cheshire cycleway and some wooded bridleways, very nice too. We set off about 7.30pm with the big lights on and prepped for the worst of what british weather could throw at us, but there was little wind, no rain and the temperature wasn’t too bad either.Posted 4 years agocrispoSubscriber
Fantastic weekend up in Edinburgh visiting a Uni friend.
Train up on friday with a top gear-esque race from Wavely Station to his house, me on my trusty Stumpjumper, him in a c63 amg merc, he just pipped me back but that is because I got lost so had to consult my phone for directions. Think I would have had him otherwise!
Saturday we went to Glentress and rode the red route but added in a cheeky bit of black in the form of Deliverance and Redemption. Great ride and and surprisingly good conditions!
Couple of cheeky pints in the grassmarket in the evening.
Sunday he took me to his local after work ride at Carron Valley. It’s not the longest or hardest but we did it a couple of times and it’s a thoroughly enjoyable little jaunt out, even despite the very very wet conditions.Posted 4 years agoOCBMember
Friday – Long’ish run along the coast in the wind / rain with added scrambling in and out of most of the quarries along the way.Posted 4 years ago
Saturday – Short’ish ride in the wind / rain with my mum & cousin.
Sunday – Fairly short run in the wind / rain.
I’m off this week too, so there’ll be more of the same I hope!peakrillMember
Shortish ride in the White Peak – wind and sunshine, followed by wind and rain, followed by wind and sunshine…
Mud, wind, rain, wet leaves, wet limestone, summer tyres equals some really scary moments plus a big grin factor in roughly equal parts.
Didn’t notice a Stormageddon though…Posted 4 years agojamesoSubscriber
Roadie weekend. Rode home to visit family, 100 miles in blustery headwinds going east on Sat. Expected a bit more than I got on the way home, was 50 mins faster but no massive tailwinds as hoped for, just a pleasant push. Big gears and easy riding in still air at 25-30 in places, feeling like a pro )Posted 4 years agonearnshawMember
We did a 20 mile loop in Calderdale on Sunday, Copley – Norland – Kebroyd – Rippoonden – Rishworth – Scammonden Dam – Pole Moor – Holywell Green – Norland – Copley!!! Bloody hard work, loads of mud and water, rain, gale force winds … had an absolute blast. You’re right, it’s good for the soul 🙂 I went out with a stressed out head from a busy week at work and came back calm and relaxed. Job done! Get out and ride – embrace the changing seasons as they add extra dimensions to your rides 🙂Posted 4 years ago
