Road ride sat with some locals, just a social 50km then Sunday was video day. The missus is now an ambassador for YMX clothing so we have some social media commitments (the free stuff arrived 🙂 so best get on with it) and ta da (some from earlier trips)Posted 4 years ago
Still injured with stress fractured tibia 🙁
Been sat around a lot, had 6 month old grand daughter all day yesterday, had plans to weed the front garden in the sun this morning but no sun and it’s freezing.
Crap weekend! Will be able to get on the turbo this week (woo bloody hoo!)
Hopefully back on the road bike next week and MTB week after for some gentle rehab and getting back up to fitness in time for summer.
My triathlon season has not got off to a great start this year 🙁Posted 4 years agohigthepigMember

good thing about commuting everyday is, when you dont ride, you dont feel too guilty, cos commuting miles sure do add up……… 😆Posted 4 years agorogerthecatMember

Saturday – snow cylcathon around the tops.
Sunday – all round to In Law’s for a cracking day
Today – garage time – Syncro to get moving, campervan to dig out of it’s snowdrift and a garage full crap to put into order (may involve building a bike of some sort, depends what I find in the parts bins.)VortexracingSubscriber
Quite a good run of riding (although all quite short)
Night Riding Thursday round Rivvy, roadbike Friday and Sunday, SS Rigid Kona Saturday and Today.
some piccies from today, dry trails 😀Posted 4 years agoDugganMember
First ride in 7 months today 😯
Mainly just because I’ve been concentrating on running, but was good to get out. 30 mile local loop with no real hills to speak of. Quads are still killing me though.
Everybody I came across seemed in a pretty good mood. Seems to have been a fair bit of trail/path sanitisation going on since I last went that way but none of it’s really ‘proper’ mtb territory so no big deal I suppose.Posted 4 years agosaxabarMember
I managed to ride locally around Gwynedd most days last week (the joys of when teaching breaks up). Had a bad off on Friday and faceplanted into ice so didn’t ride yesterday. A bad call on conditions on my behalf, particularly when riding solo (lesson very much learnt). Had an early start today up to Coed y Brenin where trails are running nice and dry (and ice free). Overall, a good result!

Went to IKEA this morning.
I’d made it 15 years since I last went to one of those hateful places, but by gods they’re soul destroying.
Apparently I misinterpreted the missus asking for an opinion on TV units for her asking for my opinion on TV units, not simply agreeing with her.
Weekend number 6 with no riding…………………..Posted 4 years agoD0NKSubscriber
Awful ride Friday short pedals thru mud In between the snow drifts around rivi (obviously different part of rivi to vortex)
Today a rather good ride round farleton knott, epic views of the snow topped lakes peaks, cold wind but sunny and dry dusty (!) trails which were rather fun, some fast bouncy downhills, sessioned a big (for me) drop, another downhill then sped back to the car where I realised I hadn’t bolted in my 20mm front wheel, i’d just hand screwed the axle into the forks, eeek, remembering the downhills and those drops was quite sobering.Posted 4 years agoVortexracingSubscriber

Not really Donk. thursday around Brinscall woods and the nab was exactly as you described it 🙁
Local round the village over the weekend has been snow free though.
glad to hear Farleton knott is clear, may head up there this Wed night rather than the snow ridden RivvyPosted 4 years agowilsonalasdairMembergarage-dwellerSubscriber
No riding for me. Took kids to see grandparents and had two family days either side. Although just done a little brake testing in the back garden after shortening some hoses and repeated crashes during some drop off practice last weekend.
Night ride tomorrow, first in months due to illness and workload. Cant wait and badly need the miles before a skills day in may.Posted 4 years agogeordiewillMember
Not had much luck lately. Went to the lakes a 22nd march – hoping to do Nan Bien. No chance of that with all the snow and end up high with axes and crampons. Went up Thrunton woods yesterday but most of it was un-rideable – managed hp sauce and one of the DH runs ~ not recommended in spd’s and frozen ruts 😉Posted 4 years ago
