- Shameful act – north west mtb club
This happened to me with those guys too.
1st time I’d ridden with them, website /forum/ contact I’d made with them said they were doing a 30-40 mile ride around Coniston and other valleys, so made the long trip to join them (about 20 riders that day)
Most of the way around figure they are actually going on to add a good 15-20 miles on top with no way of shortening the route, I’m blown out and obviously suffering and its below zero, yup just got left to my own devices.
Took me about 3.5 hours to work out how to get back to the cars, and when I got there they had all gone, thanks guys….

For balance, I went for a ride with the bog trotters. There was a girl who was struggling on the climbs, she was offered a short cut back to the car park and two of the experienced bog trotters accompanied her there.
I suppose circumstances demand what the outcome will be.Posted 4 years agoStoatsbrotherMember
Clubride last year – us bunch of southern jessies at a trail centre
Bloke feels not right – but knows the place well – insists on heading back by himself. 5 mins later not feeling so good – luckily has phone – a few of us get back to him. Small heart attack. Ambulance etc. Everyone ok.
A totally different scenario for sure – but made me reevaluate letting people go back on their own on organised rides.
Multiple issues here. The woman on her way back should have either insisted BF came with her, or not whinged to someone else when he didn’t. And he should have insisted on going back with her. And when he didn’t, someone from the club should have done the decent thing… and if they had gone back with her, they should have helped her with her mechanical… and if they had helped, she should have …
ok, probably better stop there… 😉Posted 4 years agoMarin_Maketh_The_ManSubscriber
One point that doesnt seem to have made it through all the usual BS above is that the woman in question abandoned the ride, made it safely back to the digs, and then chose to go out for a pootle later in the day during which she had the mechanical.
Truly STW at its worst.Posted 4 years ago
