    I also had visitors. My oldest biking mate, who got me into mtb riding some 24 years ago, was over from Cyprus. The last ride we did together was on the side of Mt Olympus in the hot, dry dust. This ride was sliding around the near-freezing mud and leaf mulch of Northumberland. And we had just as much fun.

    Old habits die hard. 🙂

    Working, it’s quiet and dull, got a 15mile run in this morning though.

    Riding in the mountains near to my current home in Belo Horizonte (Brazil): probably one of the world’s best riding spots. ST should come and check it out! Dry trails, hot sun, refreshing waterfalls, endless singletrack, a HUGE trail scene and icy beer and barbecue to re-energise!

    Rode from home, up over Bennachie and back (3 hours). Still trying to convince myself that you can roll everything from Oxen Craig to Back ‘o Bennachie. I’m 90% sure it all goes. Actually I’m 100% sure it goes if you hit the right line, but only 90% sure that I wont go off line, drop the wheel into a hole and throw myself into the rocks. So I’m still wimping out of some bits, which is frustrating. Still, it will come one day.

    Rode Symonds Yat / FOD, which as great and not too busy. New stuff on the Freeminers trail is pretty good, worth a look if you’re in the area. Then had a pint or 2 with the boys from SRAM you’re showing around who’d been enjoying themselves with the locals.

    No riding, sadly, but we did manage a super walk – and spied *the* most buff singletrack…so a trip planned this weekend…!

    60 miles on the road bike for me. Which is fine normally but as I only intended to go 20 miles I had not eaten before I left which made the ride a touch more challenging. Nice ride though, all around the suburbs of Brum, some if which are very nice.

    To the treelike is definitely rollable, even on my 26’er 🙂 . After the treeline it gets a bit fast for rolling off stuff.

    I rode the Hill of Fare on Saturday and managed to punch a rock with my pinkie 😳

    Rode Fod Verderers and the new Freeminers on Sunday great riding without getting completely plastered like last weekend in the Cotswolds even time to wash the bike in the bike wash and have a cuppa and cake in the excellent cafe before heading home for tea.
    Love the FOD

    I raced the European cross country qualifier in Sefton Park. I didn’t get in, not even as a reserve. Not even first V40 called Steve.

    I’m OK from the treeline down to the car park and the bit just above that as it’s all fast and fun. It’s the stuff from Oxen Craig down to the signpost for Back o’ Bennachie and the first bit from the sign down. Most of it is fine, but there are still a couple of bits that I baulk at. The stupid thing is that I don’t think the stuff I’m wimping out of is any bigger than some of the stuff that I’m riding. I’m sure that once I’ve ridden it all then it will all seem trivial. But there’s no hurry.

    Ouch, sounds painful. It can happen anywhere, I guess.

    I didn’t ride very far. Loved every metre of it.

    Road miles Sat, Sun was man-made trails for the first time in ages, at Swinley. Brilliant fun, lovely flowy stuff. Busy near the centre but quieter than I expected everywhere else.

    I’ve had old friend and pro enduro rider Jamie Nicoll from NZ staying. We took a prototype 650 carbon enduro bike to the local DH spot. Jeez he can ride, soo fast and smooth. Mind you he should be, smashed the enduro circuit as a privateer this year, beating all the big guns at some point. Great to follow for about 1 minute until he vanishes. The time I’m through a switchback he’s at the bottom. He is a real gent and spent sometime with the local lads who built the runs. The rest was bike talk and eating!

    Saturday: 30-odd miles on the road bikes with some friends west of Bath. Some hills, some cold, some brown drinks and some brown food by the fire in The Hunters Rest – ale, chips and gravy and onion rings. Nice day out.

    Sunday we took the surfboards for a drive across the Severn Bridge, looked at knee high and dropping Porthcawl with about 70 people out, played hacky sack for a bit, sacked off surfing, went for a walk along the beach, looked at where the Sea Bees live, played Throw Stones At The Stone, fish and chips (more brown) then ICE CREAM!!! then home.
