- Monday Morning Debrief No. 35 – Where did you get to?
Elterwater on Saturday with a great lunch stop at Chesters in Skelwith Bridge, unfortunately no bike as was up for a walk with the Mrs and her friends.
Sunday spent 6 hours driving up and down the m6 so no biking again 🙁

Friday evening took the Mrs and kids to Gisburn, had a great time, the place was deserted. Did multiple laps of the skills area and then rode the blue route.
Sunday had a couple of hours on Harden Moor by myself as my regular riding mates can’t be arsed getting out of bed or have turned roadie!Posted 4 years agomrphilMember
Friday Morning was a short loop of Moel Famou (15mile 3000ft climbing) with a couple of mates.
Then on Sunday a group of us rode Coed Y Brenin The Beast Trail, only rode it once before. Had a off on the Cain segment, took the wrong line and smashed my arm/hip on the rocks.
After that a few of us rode the MinorTaur, thought it was a nice smooth starter trail for people. Perfect for people getting into MTB riding at Trail centres.Posted 4 years agomcnultycopSubscriber
Lee and Cragg with a guy I work with, who is much, much faster than me (up and down).
I had two offs; one at Lee on the rock slab climb section at the start which wasn’t too bad then a big one on a fairly innocuous secction 3/4 of the way round Cragg that could have been really messy. Luckily my face missed the rocks and I only got a bent brake lever and a sprained thumb.
Good ride though.Posted 4 years agofootstomperMember

CX forest road outing, Swansea Valley up and over to Dulais Valley, up and over to Neath Valley and finally up and over to Afan Valley at Glyncorrwg. Lost the mojo for another climb back over to the Neath Valley so down the cycle path to Port Talbot for a cuppa with mother in law and lift home. Need to get some smaller chainrings or build a bit of a gravelgrinder.Posted 4 years ago
