so who still loves mountain biking here then?
I love nipping out, bimbles, blasts, marathons, easy trails, country roads, forest roads, DH trails, hills and mountains, forests and woods, moors, farm tracks, towpaths, singletrack, doubletrack, no track, roots and woodwork, dirt and gravel, straight bits, twisty bits, bumps and lumps, dips and whoops and pumps, flat turns, muddy corners, berms, drops, tabletops and rocks, hardtails, full suspension, rigid forks, flat pedals, clipless pedals, tight tops, baggy shorts, lycra tops and pants, knee pads, full-face, skid lid…
It makes no bloody difference to me. All off-road cycling is brilliant. 😀Posted 6 years agotony_mMember
For me, it’s much easier (and therefore more tempting) to set off from home on the road bike than it is to drive between 1 and 2 hours to get to a decent off-road spot.
That said, I don’t mind in the slightest driving between 1 and 2 hours to go trailbuilding, so I guess it’s not quite time to hand in my MTBers badge just yet.Posted 6 years agoMarkieMember
Me! Although what I call mountain biking in no way resembles anything rad. I think my riding maxed out sometime in the mid nineties and so that’s where I am – mid nineties jey. I enjoy it!
I sometimes think I’d like to get good (and brave) enough to be able to write what buzz-lightyear wrote above, but I don’t think I ever shall… cross off the DH, berms, tabletops excitemnt of what he wrote and it sounds bang on to me!Posted 6 years agoStainypantsSubscriber
I love it but after two major illnesses in 6 months I’ve missed out on a lot of riding. I’m planning to jump in at the deepend after 8 weeks off. Quick blast on the mountain bike on Wednesday around our local loop then 3 day on-road/off road tour of north wales.
i have found that my friends have got more into touring and auxdax and away from the mtbing as they’ve got olderPosted 6 years agothemanfromdelmonteMember
I’ve been back into Mountain Biking for a couple of years now, after a 5 year hiatus. Weight has been coming down and fitness going up, I’m not fast by any means, but I’m past the point where I get moments of “Why the **** am I doing this?” and the good bits still feel like a cross between Rally Driving/Rollercoaster/Return of the Jedi Speeder Bikes.
So. Bah-bah Ba-ba-baaah! I’m loving it.Posted 6 years ago
