    Glorious morning over The Golfie.
    Then went for lunch and Wyn Masters came and sat at our table.
    Really nice guy. Doing some pretty big training rides pre EWS. 2000 meters on his race bike then another 800 on his Ebike yesterday.😮

    Bah, can’t post the photo.

    Imagine a scenic lookout with a sign showing a labelled diagram of weathered volcanic plugs laid out before you, except there is no view, just mist.

    That is my entire week.

    Excursion to bag a couple of North Dales summits I’ve not ridden before. Some great riding and plenty of suffering too.

    Back in the Italy office this week, and more after work rides on my new forks, it’s no harder to pedal up, but coming back down is in a different league.

    Having ruined myself on Sunday by doing my first full distance triathlon, I decided a “recovery” ride on the SS was the best plan Monday …

    Different and smaller mountain today after work, less interesting downhill but nice views, followed by Beer & Ice Cream then the final 5 miles back to the hotel, quick shower then more beer and a protein recharge.

    Hour local this evening, rediscovered a trail I’d not ridden for ages and had forgotten how good it is.

    Messing around in local woods. Grew up in the desert and still cannot get over how green this country is.

    Evening loop up and over Wardlaw Hill to test the fix (speed sensor) on the GF’s bike. This is just what I got the eeb for – exploring onto the tops on the feintest of quad track that would have involved well over an hour hike over heather and boggy ground.

    This thread is great! Theres some cracking images! Isn’t this time of year bloody brilliant? :D

    I woke up early this morning and it was gloriously sunny so I took the hardtail for a quick ten mile loop down the valley. It was perfect! Lovely views out over a hazy Manchester from Holcombe Hill

    40 miler around the local moors, hunting for cool breezes. Need a lie down now.

    First full day in Torbole on Lake Garda. Tried to book a guide but no one seems to be doing it so decided on an early morning shuttle up to the top to do 601 trail from top to bottom which we were told is probably the most technical trail in the area.
    Shuttle dropped us off and we had a 400m vertical climb for 2 miles. At the top we had a 2000m drop over 9 miles which was as technical as anything I’ve done before. The rocks, boulders and drops never let up. Had to walk in a couple of places. The last mile we did in a thunderstorm.
    Finished shattered but elated. Probably bit of more than I could chew.

    Quick spin out up the local hill this morning.

    Last couple of days have seen us out above above Torbole. Temps are still in mid thirties with very little cloud

    We took it easy yesterday with a 850 ascent 10 mile climb up some old tracks. Spent some time relaxing and swimming in a lake and then had a blast back down some easy singletrack

    Today we had a shuttle up into the hills. First trail was called Hammer
    978m descent over 4.5 miles followed by a 1300m ascent back up a road for 9 miles to get to the start of the second trail called Anaconda with a 1150 drop over 5 miles.
    Both trails were first class with a mixture of everything. Steep, rocky and rooty. The climb between was hard in the heat

    @tracey – 601 is a great trail. Exhausting at some point. The last bit down those massive steps/boliders must have been crazy in heavy rain.

    It was. I was glad when we popped out at the end.
    We were recommended Velolake for the shuttles and trail knowledge by Gordon at the uplift in Inners
    He was spot on with the recomendation.
    The guys know the trails well and have some of them on Komoot.
    If we were to go back we would use them again.
    Travelled to Aosta today. Weather permitting it will be Pila in the morning

    Melting hot today – not helped by a lie in.
    Seems Picos’ routes go directly up and fall line down – and ignore schweeeeeet single-track that miners and farmers have created over the years.
    Anyhow, worth the sweat for the view.

    Looks like you’re having fun Matt.

    Mrsstus day off today so headed out for 1700 meters of Golfie fun.

    Some trails were a slippy or grippy lottery from one corner to the next. Just couldn’t tell until you were on it.

    We finished off in Pila yesterday and are now in Samoens for some lift assisted riding. Tried to book a shuttle to get to some stuff up the other side but can’t get anyone interested for 2 people. Trail map looks good but it’s easy to get carried Way and end up way down the valley.
