- Today's ride – where you been.
I did 40 miles on Saturday, then 90 on Sunday; both on the road bike. Went for a quick spin on the North Down today but I think the previous days rides had taken their toll on my legs!! That said I rode my Dialled Alpine, which has just been built up after repair and re-spray courtesy of Argos. My goodness I had forgotten what a great frame/bike it is. It’s built up quite heavy but that doesn’t detract from the fun!!Posted 4 years agostanfreeMember
Did the Tweedlove big natural around Peebles today . 30 miles and 4310 ft of climbing / pushing. Awful weather and a bit too much pushing up trails that couldn’t be ridden even In good weather.Posted 4 years ago
Still well organised and above all It was free.
I rode Long Mynd on Saturday to demo two bikes. First time up there and I thoroughly enjoyed it; there were some great unofficial DH runs just off the side of the first big climb that I played on. Pictures taken at the top of the first descent which was an absolute hoot. The weather was fab and the views awesome, so much so that I can’t wait to get back ip there.
Banshee Rune before it hot covered in mud and sheep poo on the Minton Batch descent which I thoroughly enjoyed too.
Covett, same place, loop two.my legs were feeling it a bit by this point.
Gong for the Rune…should hopefully pick it up next at the weekend (frame only).
Rode Hopwas woods yesterday morning, mucking about on the short DH runs and jumps on the BFe which was good fun and not too strenuous.
Did forty miles on the road bike this afternoon….in a very strong wind. The lady few miles were torture, but glad I got out. Legs felt pretty tired though, I was aiming to do more but the combination of tired legs and strong winf meant that I sussed out. Was lovely when I it out of the wind.Posted 4 years agomattjgSubscriber
Went to the park (on my 29er HT) intending to arse about on the skate ramps, there were too many teenagers so I got embarrassed and turned away.
3 laps of the almost absolutely most local short ST, bit of an off at the start of the 3rd lap, sore thumb banged up shoulder.
Did a couple of laps of the BMX track on the way home, almost had to remind the giggling groms that my taxes paid for it.Posted 4 years agoTheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
Missed yesterdays Hope ride with the lads due to 2 days of hard drinking, live music and sunshiiiine. Had a little job to do today, co-incidentally in Hope – so would have been rude not to!
Just a little one, up Roman Road, down The Beast, up A57/Rowlee Farm, down Hagg Farm berms, climbed back up to Hope Cross and down the grass rather than Roman Road – drop-off at the bottom. Lovely!Posted 4 years agomatt23Member
Hit Cwmcarn on each of the 3 days using Strava for the first time and I have set myself a goal of a sub 55minute lap by the end of the summer!Posted 4 years ago
Chuffed that I managed a 59 on Sat a 56.50 on Sunday 😀 then a 58.20 today – my legs died today 🙁
I’m not bragging but I was chuffed especially as this is the first time I have ever done non stop laps around the Twrch……..and to top it off the weather was amazing this weekend!AmbroseMember
Tywi track, loads of lovely Mid Wales splashy fun. Shame about the idiot motorbikers who left their bbq’s festering at the side of the trail. But it didn’t spoil a great day out. Willow-pooch cut one of her pads though and limped the last km or so back to the car. Bless her, she’s such a good dog.Posted 4 years agomrphilMember
Blimey MrPhil no wonder you nearly killed me when rode round the Wirral with you. Yesterday did black then blue at Llandegla happily quiet on the trails despite busy carpark, cracking day.
To be fair the we were going at a good pace that day. Not been out much really so was good to get a good leg stretch in.
Wasn’t a quick ride more grinding on. Next one will be bigger, bottom bracket and phone battery let me down.
Was good to ride Degla Blue, keep the legs going and it’s a very fast trail.Posted 4 years agodekadanseMember
Local trails in the last couple of days, but Dunwich Heath and Forest with my brother-in-law today, interspersed by a pint of Humpty Dumpty at the Ship and an ice cream on the beach………happy daze!
Nipper99, your Gower jaunt gets my vote. Had a stonking time going round Rhosilli Down a couple of years ago, and also up the hill behind Oxwich Bay the year before that.Posted 4 years agokayak23Subscriber
Long spin around the Warwickshire Pyrenees, trying to test the Prince Albert which I’ve reluctantly changed to 2×9 from 1×9 for a forthcoming trip. Trouble is, there are not really any hills that need a granny round here…
Cracking day out on many a cheeky trail, many of which are normally a total mudfest.
