Monday Morning Debrief No. 27 – What did you do?
Hungover Saturday, spent most of it trying to rig a ghetto way to pull the bearings from the Anthem suspension.
Sunday rode the Ogre and then realised I haven’t got the foggiest of how to press the new bearings back in to the suspension. 🙄
Monday – buy Maestro bearing tool 😳Posted 4 years agoDaveMember

Saturday – Jobs in the morning, afternoon test ride for the new rigid SS
Sunday – family day with parents, Outlaws and sons.
Top weekend finished off with 3 hours Ironathon watching Bluestone 42.thisisnotaspoonMember
Saturday – bike fetteling, fitted towbar bike carrier, and a bit of shopping for stuff.
Sunday – club run, 72 miles at 16.5mph. First in ages which annoyed me as I could repeatedly ride off the front or do very long turns on the flat, but on the only hill (near then end when the pace got upped to nearer 20) I dropped off the back like a stone! Which just left me furstrated knowing if I lost the couple of spare stone I’m carrying I’d be in the ‘brisk’ or even ‘fast’ groups!
Having a carb free week as a result 🙁Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Up to Kinlochleven for the Bluegrass enduro… Sacked off the race and just made practice day into a fun ride on new and old trails, lovely. Then up to Fort William on sunday instead of racing and spent the day on the downhill and nevis red- I’d planned a wee lap of the Witches Trails too but they’re closed 🙁 Lovely weather, more views than in any ride this year… Lovely.Posted 4 years ago154hopperavenueMember
Lightcliffe to Pecket Well on the towpath.
Check out the ‘ancient-ish and not so modern’ Oranges.
Great time ‘sessioning’ the trail in the woods (must have been up and down one bit or another over 20 times in total).
Towpath home. Knackered (52km there and back) but well worth it, even the pushing up the packhorse bit at the start over and over and over…..
Coin-op bogs…cheeky buggers.Posted 4 years agomaxtorqueMember
45 MTB miles around the Ridgeway on a nice local route organised by the village my sister used to live in:
Not a long distance, but the first time since breaking my wrist i’ve been back on the bike for more than an hr or so. Also we were fast enough to avoid the positively Biblical Downpour that hit the 2/3rds of the riders so hard it was like an out take from “waterworld” at times 😉Posted 4 years agoSandwichSubscriber
50 miles around Suffolk on Saturday, one off just before Woodbridge. Managed to climb 2500 feet according to Garmin!! Saw the flypast for the aforementioned colour trooping as it went over Dallinghoo. Got back just before the rain, result. Nice pic taken on a cheeky sectionPosted 4 years ago

Sunday nothing as the thigh muscle that I crashed on said enough, so wedding stuff with Mrs Sandwich for the day.DickyboyMember

Yup it was pretty wet for the last 5 miles or so for us, think my mate was the first* fatbike to the finish line though

Saturday: Wife took my girls out to see her parents so I took the hound out for a trip round Delamere.Posted 4 years ago
Sunday: Usual morning ride followed by fork service (found that the Talas side is worn but still working and I’ve got my missing 20mm back), steak and cider 😀
Spent a couple of hours yesterday evening experimenting with shock and fork pressures on my FS, using Evian in Winterfold as my test bed. It’s a short trail but with a gradient on it, berms, a steep bombhole and some root steps, so a good candidate as a laboratory.
I finished with the settings pretty much where I started them!Posted 4 years agoEcky-ThumpMember
My slowest ride of the year so far. Averaged less than 3 miles per hour!!!
… but that was over the 4 passes; Honister, Scarth Gap, Black Sail & Sty Head and did involve a leisurely lunch and brew at Black Sail Hostel.
Great route. Good descents but some serious hike-a-bike too. Wouldn’t want to carry a 35lb bike on my back much further than that though.Posted 4 years ago
