    Saturday – Lazy day followed by a trip to the gym, only to discover that the normal weights machines and free weights have been replaced with a load of contraptions with pulleys, ropes, handles and no instructions, just a big spangly logo with some buzzword. Great if your a geriatric granny, rubbish if you just want to do a simple routine of pull ups, dips, bicep curls and bench press. Not a happy camper.

    Sunday – Minley with the Trolls folowed by beer tea in the pub

    Good work DrP, proper family fun. 😀


    Stole an hour in Rivelin valley, Sheffield, every descent like a smooth toboggan run, excellent fun.

    I had a wee ride on the new cross bike. Woohoo!

    And of course a hell of a lot of sledging with the kids!



    Bike, Snow, River, Bridge and a bloody cold wind corridor !!!


    Road ride (100k), Sledging, London Bike Show.


    Got sent home from work early on Friday, so went for a 25km local ride round the woods finished off with a hot chocolate & a nice pice of ginger cake at the forest cafe.

    Headed off into North Wales on Sunday and did a 35km loop from Moel Famau, to Nercwys Forest and up round some hills with drifts 3ft deep along alot of the trails & Offas Dyke before returning to the car park – had to get pushed out due to the amount of show that had fallen in the mean time.

    Spent the weekend on the sofa after losing the front wheel commuting home on Friday night and coming down hard on my knee.

    I was doing a lot of things wrong and I’m paying the price! Fingers crossed for a swift recivery – a cheeky long weekend in the Alps in 3 weeks hangs in the balance.

    The local clay was ridable because of the weather so it saved a 30 mile minimum drive 🙂

    Sat – That’ll be the Bike/Boat Show then. Long day in all, wandered around until I found some lone chap sitting on a stand called SingleTrack.. Well blow me I thought, whats this doin ere? So I popped over and said “Helyo, I uses de Furum I does” Bless his heart, he gave me the thumbs up. I also stopped MrsBouy from spending £900 on a table.. ohhh how we had banter/argument/banter until I won.

    Sun – Cleared off into an amazingly quiet London Town and bought some swanky boots in a sale.. Then meandered around, took some photos of deserted streets then in the Gym for a few hours and dripped with sweat in the Sauna.

    Mostly there were four wheels on my waggon, not two.. 😐

    Little bit of snow..

    Sheffield to Edale via Rivelin valley, Stanage Causeway, Hope and Jaggers Clough. Made use of the following wind and got the train bike.

    Stanage Causeway is so much better in the snow than usual !


    Entered my first ever dh race at Tavistock in Devon – woodland riders winter series rd 1, I was in a strong masters cat which included kye forte and jim davage. Needless to say I didn’t give them any cause for concern results wise but I had fun despite freezing my nuts off and will be returning for rd 2 next month.

    Quick spin out to the shops on Saturday and then had a ride in the proper snow on Sunday. Wished I had not chosen the rigid singlespeed as it was tough going in sections…
