Monday Morning Debrief No. 30 – What did you do?
A little ‘hike a bike’ session on Saturday, nothing like hauling bikes up rocky steps in plus 30 degree heat.Posted 4 years ago
It was a local cheeky trail, really tough to climb (over an hour of granny gear/carrying) but one that rewards with a great view and an even better descent.
I had a good weekends riding. Didn’t have my daughter so I smashed a few rides and pub visits. The sun was shining and the trails were dry and fast.
Ended the weekend with some German sausage from the continental market.
And a couple of pints of Purple Moose Snowdon Ale.
Now it’s all over and I’m back in work. 😥Posted 4 years agoBurchy1Member
Great weekends riding!
Local ride on Saturday at Haldon which finished with me clearing the 20ft double i’ve been looking at for a while (cheers for the tow in neilforrow off here!)
Sunday we ventured down to Cardinham where the outlaws looked after the boy whilst me and the lady went for a first ride together in 12months. It made my weekend, being able to watch her smile and ride bikes together!Posted 4 years agoThe Sanity AssassinSubscriber

Pennine X – Superb, it was too, one of my best rides in this country – ever. The people organising the event are just so nice, you want to keep going back just to see them again. Superb course in the dry, a bit tricky last year in the wet.
A monumental effort in that heat got me a big PB and the 8th fastest time. So despite waking up with cramp in both feet and sore calves this morning, I’m pretty chuffed.Posted 4 years agoSandwichSubscriber
No riding at all (well 500m on an e-bike on flat path but that doesn’t count). There was a lot of visiting hotels and tourist attractions in the Dordogne for work. The high point was a lunch at a Michelin 1 star restaurant yesterday. Trying to stay focussed after it was a challenge in the 34 plus heat.Posted 4 years ago

Did a couple of hours Saturday night round the Casa de Campo and El Prado then did an epic 125km in the mountains around Manzanares el Real on the Sunday, but the temperature has been 38-40’c, so even drinking five litres on Sunday, i still feel like a dried out raisin.Posted 4 years agokhegsMember
Did sod all on Saturday, then had a bit of a fettle on sunday (dropped the stem 15mm) & did 12 miles up to & round Leigh woods & back
damn hot, even though I didn’t go out till gone 6, lovely though.
First time since I’ve been keeping track that I’ve done 50 miles in a week (yes I know that’s not all that far, but I am mid-30’s & working in IT*)
*I don’t own an audi or an Orange 5 though, & I’m not management either 😉Posted 4 years agoBunnyhopSubscriber
Saturday got up early for a walk around Bruges. Then cycled to the beach at Zeebrugger via Damm. Had a bit of a play in the sand, then cycled onto the ferry. 13 hour crossing back to Hull. Packed the bikes in a van, friends into a car and back home to a hot day of gardening and watching Murray win Wimbledon.Posted 4 years ago
Belgium biscuit cycle tour over and done until next time.mrphilMember
Usual ride to Llandegla Saturday morning, all went well till 2 miles from home my Maxle Snapped on a flat road section 🙁 Got a rescue lift home.
Sourced a Maxle to use on Sundays LCL 100 mile ride.
Completed it in 6hrs 45 on my Alpine 160 with knobbly tyres. Reason for this was to raise some ££ for Duchenne now.
Slight mishap just as I entered the tunnel on the way back, pedal snapped and I had to ride using 1 leg to get back up the other side.
Great day though as I am glad I done it. The 3 roadies who were with me were slow though 😉Posted 4 years agobigladMember
Drinking round durham on sat and a trip to urgent care on Sunday to get leg looked at after an incect bite got on a ride last Monday got infected. Turns out to cellulitis so antibiotics and resting me leg for the next 7 days means no riding for me. Wouldn’t have minded to much but can’t even have a beer while sitting in the garden cos of the antibiotics lolPosted 4 years agoWildHunter2009Subscriber
Weekend down to Dunsborough, some wine and beer tasting and testing my new climbing rope out at Wilyabrup. Very little actual climbing, loads of faffing and dolphins = a pretty good day. Then Lions and a pretty big night out. Only downside was being told no riding was likely and turning up to a guy unpacking his new heckler dammit.
To the chap riding around Stoke Row, mucho jealous! Thats my old stomping grounds, I grew up exploring the woods around there and I do miss them sometimes! Pint at the Cherry Tree was it?Posted 4 years ago
