So who else braved it today?!
Could not face another session on the rollers or turbo – so headed out for a short / quick spin on the MTB – got a bit over confident on a fast decent & ended up hitting the deck – surprised at the amount of snow in the woods – short ride – big smiles – and naturally I was on the YetiPosted 5 years agohigthepigMember
Rode in for work tonight, 4 miles in snow/ice but was really nice. In retrospect was not the best night for the CX bike with the newly installed chicken brake levers, I have managed to turn the sharp acting front brake in to something more akin to a supertanker gradual slow, not very confidence inspiring and I will need to fettle some more before I spear into something painful.Posted 5 years ago
2 hours of fun in the snow. Crash in first 200m almost put me off but got used to the skidding pretty quickly. Awesome fun despite the inevitable crashes (mainly in hidden horse churned sections, one not enough speed the other too much) and one trip onto a hidden pond. Oops!! I love snow riding despite the current period of thawing feet. Aaargh!Posted 5 years agoSimwitSubscriber
Teamhurtmore, Today I approached the Punchbowl from Thursley up Highfield lane & straight up where that turns into byway. The normally loose stoney climb was mostly rideable as the snow has been compacted by the passage of 4×4’s, then a quick cheeky over the lookout point to avoid the section of byway that’s just muddy tyre gullies, back down to cross the old A3 and up the quiet road towards the cafe. It was hard work on the legs but the snow seemed quite grippy.Posted 5 years ago
Thanks, I normally come down that way but may try that tomorrow. The track around the lookout does have the irritating bit as you say. And the climb up to the lookout is hard from the DP side due to three big steps! Few nice cheeky runs off it though especially the holes in the heather route. It would be nice to have a bit more snow overnight to freshen things up a bit!Posted 5 years agodannyhMember
you are all making me jealous! The missus pulled the ladder up last night, so 100% childcare for me today. To be fair, she does seem to have flu, but I am thinking of some means testing if it goes on much longer. Maybe leave a nice cup of tea on a shelf too high for her to reach, if I catch her climbing on a chair to get it, then I am off out on the bike.
Or is that a bit harsh?Posted 5 years ago
