Drove to Fort William on friday night. Got to Nevis Range at 9am, lifts closed due to Weather. Spent day riding downhill bikes up to the wallride and back down (only had the 224 with me so no world champs) and taking spurious testrides from alpine bikes. Not exactly what was planned, not bad but not the same.
So, excellent straightforward Glentress red/black route bash with ChrisL on sunday to restore the balance of the force.Posted 4 years agoandytherocketeerSubscriber
well our may day holiday was on erm… may dayPosted 4 years ago
but this is what my awesome leg power did to a 152km old chain, so the ride was cut slightly short (broke the multitool chain breaker thingy too 👿 )

Fast 25 mile xc in the chilts on Sunday, conditions couldn’t have been better, went to Swinley Monday with the gf to try themes trails there. Pretty good I thought. Great to see loads of families on the blue, and beginner gf really enjoyed the ‘red’ . car park rammed though!!Posted 4 years agopasstherizlaMember
I was having a really good weekend, walked some new trails on Saturday with my boy, then Sunday had a lazy morning in the skatepark with the boy again and went riding about 12 with my pals…. 20 minutes in and disaster struck…. More on that later. It’ll probably get its own thread.Posted 4 years agochivesMember
Posted this in Rocketdog’s thread – but here ’tis anyhoo..
Left the house (coastal West Dorset) at 6am, spent two hours riding in thick fog before the sun broke through near Blagdon Hill, had a tool around the Quantocks before riding home. 91 miles door to door, bit toasted but had a great time. They have dust on the Quantocks, real crumbly dust! So not quite a coast to coast (& back) but not far off.
Definitely good for the Soul!Posted 4 years agonedrapierSubscriber
First proper go out on my spruced up, rigidified, all-but-one-of-the-gears-removed hardtail. Loved it. 10 mile ride with a pub lunch, plus impromptu 23 mile extension, was a great test. New friends, great trails, amazing weather. Beer.
Another 20+ miles on Sunday. Cider, beer, pig, revolutionary poetry, ride back in the sunset. Beer, raspberry vodka, fire.
Monday: beach fun, swimming, shivering, snoozing, driving home via an old friends for dinner.
Absolute stonker of a weekend!Posted 4 years agothegiantbikerMember
Climbed up Salthrop hill and had a little look around the woods as it’s been a while. Then over to the Ridgeway, along to Barbury castle and then eventually had this year’s first fully dry run down ladder lane. Managed not to scare myself this time round. Finished up with a lap around Croft and then back across town towards home and BBQ!Posted 4 years ago
