    Going up the back of Snowdon past the old slate works with the oth erhalf who doesnt ride much, Think we saw two other people all day. The weather was awful all the way there in the car but as soon as the bikes came off the car a gap in the clouds appeared and very weidly followed us all the way up.

    After a hard non stop climb we came over a ridge and were rewarded with this view which the camera doesnt remotly capture.

    Crater Lake, Oregon, USA. Ten year old does his first 70 mile ride on the back of a tandem -not me on the front; I’m not sponsored to race in the category below my age in the US cyclocross league. I was on an MTB, took some detours and by the time I got to the campground, drubbed, my son was happily running around chasing chipmunks. I may as well retire now.

    Normally you get fantastic views of a volcanic crater with a perfect blue lake -today everything is hazy due to a forest fire 50 miles south; we’d had to cancel plans to visit the Lassen Volcanic national park because of it. Cleared up the next day for the classic views.

    If you haven’t been to Oregon with an MTB, you’ve missed out on some excellent trails.

    April 2012. Rich’s 29er in the background.
    Four season in one day ride. Snowing by the time we topped the Withens Road climb from the reservoir.

    It’s been a year of mostly local, solo biking, due to work.

    Had loads of brilliant rides in the few weeks of hot, dry weather we got down south at the end of the summer though. This could have been from any of them…

    My last epic ride in the UK with my Welsh buddies.
    A long hot and foggy climb to the summit of Pen Trumau in the Black Mountains.
    We stopped and wondered how we were going to descend with such limited visibility.

    As if by act of God or magic a wind blows it all away in an instant revealing my favourite descent in South Wales.

    Amazing day.

    First time in the US so made quite a change from Birmingham. Took a 29er over the bridge and overtook a few roadies coming up the road pictured. From here I then road all over the Marin headlands, all the trails that Marin name there bikes after. A Beautiful, never to forget day.

    Dartmoor – sitting out yet another band of hail.
    That turned out to be a properly hard ride that one did …

    Found a pic from the best single ride I did last year (some random riders, for illustration purposes only etc). Evans Ride-It event in Feb, early start for a local loop in the Chilterns that turned out to be 20-odd miles of dry powder snow at -10 under clear blue skies – on big 29er tyres, big rims and about 12-15 psi. One of those fun, unexpected, perfect days on the bike. For a few hours, I was John Stamstad in the Idita )
