- Today's ride – where you been.
Rode out to the coast for an ice cream this afternoon (89km) then after watching the F1 I nipped out again up to Rivi Pike and back (18km)Posted 4 years ago
Such a lovely day!JunkyardMember
Well as he said Hellvelyn and Dollywagoon descent. I am not that broken I just hurt more than I would like but that is going over the bars and landing on rocks with your ribs 🙄
Somehow managed to do it on a tame and non technical [ well relatively] part of the descent after dollywaggon steps*
Cracking day out with awesome weather
* I am not claiming I cleaned them but I did not crash…dont mention the failure to unclip momentPosted 4 years agoyunkiMember
Into town and back for day three of the town music festival, trailer loaded up with kids, picnic and assorted consumable sundries..
It was belting hot, excellent craic with some entertaining shenanigans, a bazillion friendly faces and a good day had by all..Posted 4 years ago
Missed the reggae band in the evening though as my oldest son would much prefer to be at home getting some peace and quiet and had been more than patient enough by 8pm..pslingSubscriber
Reckon you earned that icecream simondbarnes!
Me, I set out on a long all day ride in the FoD. Stopped at daughter’s (13km) for a brew, next door neighbours were firing up the bar-b-que so spent the next four hours sat in the sun eating, chatting, drinking and then rode home again 8)Posted 4 years agosimmySubscriber
Nipped out on the old raleigh, was just gonna nip round block but felt good so kept going for a couple of hours just down the old railways.
No Garmin with me so guessing only about 10 miles or so but on a 24 year old boneshaker it feels like double.
Quick loop of Rivi tonight on the Orange.Posted 4 years agoblandMember
We also did hellvellyn but from martindale and never made the top as we had a few mechanicles and flats including an xtr pedal coming off the axle! Thorough searching of glenridding and patterdale eventually turned up an old pair of spd’s courtesy of the kind chap at the boat hire place on the lake! Ride salvaged but did sticks descent instead which was the verge of rideable in places and then the descent to dale end, fab day in the sun on dusty trails!Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
Hard to take pics when your out by yourself but had this on demo for the weekend so went out for a good couple of rides. Was out as guest of a local pub scoping and mapping rides for them so they can sent people out with more confidence.Posted 4 years ago

Sure was a lovely day for it.
I had a little scouting ride round a local quarry then guinea pigged the first bit of a new trail i’m working on. Made a little vid too and as usual there’s a crash but there’s also dust.

but fantastic ride. Five great descents in Symonds Yat. How can you not love a ride that goes ‘grounded, dead-end-down, buckstone, two-headed sex beast and bunker followed by beer’. My bike has some kind of dried mud on it. No idea what it’s called.Posted 4 years ago
