    17/11/2017.
    Brrr, tis a bit chilly! Where’s those base layers eh? dig em out.
    Beanie under helmet if you’re soft like me (at least for the first 30 minutes) and on with the warmer gloves.

    Just a local run for me on Sunday evening as we have a busy weekend planned. Looks to be dry for most, with temps mostly below 5 on Sunday. Could be worse.
    Where you off?

    Usual social road ride for between 3 and 6 seems to have become a gentle off road loop for three of us. Me on the fatty, mate 2 on his Cx bike, and mate 3 on his somewhat old school Ti mtb. We will be comparing experiences in the pub on the way back to the village.

    Just a local loop in the woods this morning. Hoping to get out for a longer road ride tomorrow.

    22 miles around the Dales with Santaslittlehelper off here. Nearly killed me, that bridleway form Dent to the Kingsdale road was particularly hard. ๐Ÿ™

    Went exploring on the FOD, round Mallard’s Pike area. Found some lovely trails in great condition I’ve never found before. Weather was good too, just a normal top over a baselayer and shorts, at the end of November ๐Ÿ˜€

    Tomorrow will most likely be a visit to Cwmcarn. Off this week too so much riding will be done.

    Couple of hours round Scolty. Lovely day here. Maybe repeat tomorrow, or a wee road ride maybe.

    Nearly killed me, that bridleway form Dent to the Kingsdale road was particularly hard.

    I found that pretty appalling in midsummer. Downhill. That first section out of Dent would be silly steep to climb up. The main BW at the top must have been an utter shitefest.

    Getting over the lurgy from Friday and Saturday, so just a local short loop for me to wheeze around and a bit of wheelbuilding.

    It was a good job I had a light bike to push up, as there was very little riding ๐Ÿ™„

    The main BW at the top must have been an utter shitefest.

    It was pretty soul destroying TBH, it must be one of the worst kept BW I know of ๐Ÿ™

    Last time reminded me why I hadn’t ridden it for five years. That was after squelching up over the moor south from Ribblehead too. There are tougher BWs in the Dales though! ๐Ÿ˜€

    40 miles on my singlespeed through Clumber and over to Sherwood Pines riding mostly off-piste trails. Pretty hard frost first thing with some frozen puddles, but the trails were dry and riding well.

    Did both trails at Cwmcarn today with a few laps of the freeride section for good measure ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hopefully they’ll keep these two trees when they fell the Cafall side of the valley, had to grab a (crap, poor light) picture of them just in case.

    Everyone was really happy and chatty there today, despite it being only 5 degrees and a bit of slop on the ground for added spice. Place was nearly full with loads of families out too.

    Eh? What time were you there? It pissed down the whole time I was there yesterday.

    From 9.30 to about 2ish. I did loop out to the other parts of the forest for most of the day so missed the rain that seemed to be permanently camped over the main trails! Was dry and cool everywhere else 8)

    Took some friends for a tour round some local lakes singletrack

    Had a lovely wander around Dartmoor yesterday on the new 29er Lustleigh, Houndtor etc (29ers don’t like tight corners much do they? Eek)

    All beautifully crisp and dry, and great autumn colours too.

    Up on Bowerman’s nose

    Not the ideal handlebar setup for the bottom 1/2 of the water descent..

    Nearly killed me, that bridleway form Dent to the Kingsdale road was particularly hard

    Last rode this in 2002 and never had the urge to try it again. Absolutely appalling back then due to off road motor traffic. They had pulled stones off the walls to fill the worse parts but these were often hidden in the deep water filled trenches (rut doesn’t cut it!). Oddly, it doesn’t look too bad in the video.

    That particular BW was not on the video, it would have made particularly bad viewing, ๐Ÿ™„
