    The only bad thing about Summer is overgrown cheeky singletrack πŸ˜€

    The trails were a teeeeny bit too dry last night in that a shooting access road up on the moor has gone from Regular gravel track to sandy mini beach with little windblown dunes. 😯 It was too draggy. I needed a fat bike. πŸ™‚ Oh and dry ground makes you go too fast and crash. But otherwise it’s lovely. Why do I have to come to work…

    STOP TALKING ABOUT HOW DRY IT IS!

    Funnily enough, as we were moaning about the dessicated state of the trails last night, a live firing exercise was whoomping away over at Otterburn. We could see the flares going up as Mr Bandito fixed his second pinch flat of the evening. Fortunately the big guns weren’t aimed at us…

    Dare I say it, but Mayhem is next weekend, so this dry spell isn’t going to last for much longer.

    No mention of taking mudguards off though. The OP was nicely TIC but jinxing it like that is way too serious!

    eh? MTB riding is still training, you just need to make sure you ride a LOT, win win.

    I’m training for a 950 mile road ride, but am still out on the mtb while the going is good. Tarmac can wait…

    Rode Torridon a couple of weeks ago on a hardtail, bone dry and very quick trails. Downside was my new shimano brakes are now super sharp, so might have to back to Hopes to get used to that crappy am I gonna stop feeling. Other disadvantages are that I have to spend more time with the wife and less time cleaning the bike, look further ahead when riding local trails, start wearing body armour again and worst of all, I have to go out more.
    Its just all so depressing

    The normally buff and fast singletrack is now a sandpit…………and terrible to control on the descents.

    learn how to control the bike?

    I rode on the Quantocks last night, very dusty and I didn’t have to clean the bike when I got home, it felt like I was cheating. It was quite foggy up there at 7 this morning, which damped the dust down for an hour or so.
