Weekend riding Plans and Pics?! (05/05)
It’s that glorious time of the year when the trails are dry and the nettles and brambles are still at ankle height. So quick get out there before it rains and you get scratched to buggery by brambles. The sun is setting later and later and it’s back to 8.45pm so it’s getting better every day.
I’ve treated the Soul to a new BB and front mech and I’m out local tonight (Hanchurch most likely) and I’ve got a permission slip for all of Sunday morning (If I take the kids out all afternoon and pay for tea at the pub!) when I’m planning on going to Cannock bright and early.
Weather looks to be dry and sunny for most and better on Sunday than Saturday. Where you off?Posted 9 months agosofaboy73Member
greno woods tonight to check everything working on the bike after a full strip & rebuild – followed by chips and a couple of pints at the red lion. wharncliffe woods tomorrow followed by a couple of pints at the Pheasant. cutgate sunday followed by a couple of pints at the wagon & horses. sometimes I wonder why I never lose weight regardless of the amount of riding I do!Posted 9 months agopostierichSubscriber

Getting dropped off in Hope tomorrow so I can cycle the rest of the way to sheffield. Using the vertebrate hope to sheffield route unless anyone has any better ideas?
Been a great week for cycling, I’m not working at the moment so I’ve been out every day this week. Scout Moor was lovely today.

I shall be doing the 50 mile route at the Fat Lad at the Back sportive from Ilkley out somewhere further north and back again.
Looking forward to seeing part of the country I don’t get to very often and meeting some of my fellow Flambassadors in person. And the bacon butties at the start. And what looks like it might be a hog roast at the end. The riding a bike bit is just fluff, frankly!Posted 9 months agocolournoiseSubscriber
Quick blast around local trails after work today.
Was going to do the cliched bluebell thing too, but then the wild garlic stopped me in my tracks.

Cracking afternoon exploring Friston forest today.
First ride on my new (to me) ti altitude & also my first ride with a dropper post. What a difference they both made.
With the other half away in london for a girly weekend, I’m in the rare position that I may well go back tomorrow for another ride!Posted 9 months agoprawnyMember
Out late last night watching Maximo Park in brum and having to get the kids to swimming early this morning only leaves tomorrow for a lie in so 5 hours sleep last night up at 5:20 this morning for a quick blat around some select bits of cannock to be home for 7:30.
Back on flats today after sat weeks clipless experiment. Think I’m going to go with the clips for Scotland.Posted 9 months agodumbbotMember
Well first visit to inners didn’t go according to plan, enjoying the XC climb and decent on a beautiful day but an over the bars result in the bike landing on me and the outer chainring puncturing my lip, and my nose took a battering.(big target) and my lovely new saddle might be borked as the rail pop out.
4 stitches on the outside and 2 on the inside.
2x are OOT, anyone wanna sell me a 1x set up that doesnt try and impale you.Posted 9 months agomrhoppySubscriber
Took the long way to the inlaws, made the 10km trip into a 75km run through the shire down to Marshbrook over Caer Caradoc then back along the Long Mynd. For some reason the bright sun of the week was replaced by persistent drizzle.
B+ is a bit of a drag on the roads.Posted 9 months agonathanpwMember
First time at Queen Elizabeth country park today, very dry and loose and good fun. Signage could be a bit better, think I missed the start of the red but probably me being blind! A few walkers on one section but luckily a flat bit so no collisions, would definitely go back.Posted 9 months ago
