    local singlespeeding for me tomorrow, summer tyres, the only tricky bit will be the first down as that’ll be a river slip&slide otherwise should be mostly dry 🙂


    Cannock was epic today absolutely destroyed it right up until the moment when the bars came loose ha! It’s always on the descents eh never uphill

    Perfectly dry on the tourist trails off piste still shot to bits

    Have a good one wherever you go

    Working all weekend. Finish at 1500 home for 1600 and out for a short blast. Probably Darwen tower.


    not bad for 20+ miles cross country at the end of feb 🙂 always nice when the bike comes back cleaner than when it left !

    remarkably dry today after only a week without rain, trails running fast and we reveled in the pre spring growth openness

    Looks great.

    My dog walk was sticky as **** so I’m not too distraught about working rather than riding today.


    Lovely pic that rocketDog!

    Chilling with a few bottles of Sharp’s Atlantic this pm. Have just prepped mine & wife’s bike for the Amberley Rocket sportive tomorrow and started off the steak and ale casserole for after in in the slow cooker.
    Morning dog walk revealed pretty good trail conditions in QECP and I felt marginally guilty about not riding but 67 miles tomorrow will even things out.

    Blimey that felt cold! But at least the slop is finally starting to dry up (in places) here in the South Dales.

    Just got back from riding local and it surprising how much the trails have dried out. More sludge on the dog than the bikes. Lets hope the Peak has dried out a bit since last week for tomorrow’s ride.

    Boredale, Martindale common and Ullswater shore.

    Lovely day for it


    49 miles on the road bike and i was froze !

    Going to Mabie tomorrow, after several months off the bike in winter hibernation. A mixture of excitement and fear, I checked my bike and had a quick ride around the block today and i was knackered..easy does it.


    An hour on the bike in a skin suit here, bloody hell that was cold!

    Headed up to Sherwood Pines in search of dry trails and wasn’t disappointed! Trails are in basically perfect condition at the moment bar a couple of what look like permaslop sections.

    Couple of laps of the Kitchener, Breakfast Bagette and home in time for the Rugby!

    All colours of cold today, 15mph NorEasterly meant chilly arms and chin.. The Farmers of the South Downs have been busy replanting over the “wet” season, we have fields of manicured corduroy…

    And no beer today, it’s far too early..

    Lots of bikes at Lee Quarry

    Yesterday afternoon I rode up to the top of Baildon Moor and back via Shipley Glen.
    Then early this morning I headed for Harden Moor for some fun before the general public got out of bed.
    Trails are drying out nicely:-)

    Another partial success. Hit ice on the priest road and nearly didappeared in to the waiting chasm. Then lost my wingman on the last descent and spent half an hour searching for one another fearing finding an air ambulance job. Thankfully just navigational error.

    Stunning day out.

    Took my lad for a couple of laps at Hicks Lodge yesterday – I need to get their recipe for peanut butter brownie. Half bone dry, half mysteriously wet, no idea why.

    44 miles and 2800+ feet on the road bike with a mate this morning. Both with heavy winter legs still. Got overtaken a lot by big groups near Carsington. But first dry road ride of the year. Also first puncture of the year, going downhill at 25mph with a thankfully considerate driver behind.

    Comrie Croft with Stirling Bike Club today. It almost seemed like spring…just whisper it mind, for now. 8)

    I’ve had a belting weekend! Off on Friday and the wife wanted to go to Cannock as she hasn’t been for a few months, trails where in perfect condition bar a couple of puddles.

    Yesterday was the wifes birthday, so we went walking with friends on the Malvern’s before watching the rugby with a pint.

    And today I headed to the Long Mynd on the Blur’s penultimate ride before it’s replaced. Bit damper than I was anticipating under wheel but a cracking day for it:

    And as I’m off work tomorrow as well, I might crack the summer roadie out for the first time this year 😀

    Had a great day out in the Peak, along time since I saw as many riders out. Sun was out and the trails were a lot drier than last weekend. Bikes have been cleaned and its now time for a glass of wine and a long soak.


    Only decent weekend in ages and it my Mrs birthday…so no riding bikes for me!


    pootling with the good lady.

    All day friday building n’ clearing new trails of debris, same on sat, similar on sunday morning then riding for a couple of hours sun afternoon..absolutely shattered now with trembling arm muscles and shaky jakey legs but it’s been brilliant weather over the past few days and i’ve got shitloads done so i’m a very happy bunny – I imagine i’ll be off the land of nod before 8pm t’night and nae work t’morn for me.

    Getting a new sony AS200 action cam delivered t’morn so i’ll try and get some filming done of my trails.


    Twice round Ae red and once round Mabie red yesterday and once around Dalbeattie red this morning. Not been down there for years. Trails are all pretty immaculate and running like summer. Shows a bit how Glentress is a victim of its own success I feel when you see how damaged some of the trails are (I know they do what they can)


    Recent running injury has forced me back out on my bike for the first time in nigh on 5 years! (Running and hill walking seem to have got in the way…) Anyhoo, had a right blast, easing in gently down the local railway walk before hooning about in the woods. Woohoooooooooo!

    I love my brick

    That may be the case but why remove it from your wall?

    There are a lot of cracking photos form this weekend, a lot of comments about “enjoying oneself” too..

    Which means only one thing.

    We all love riding bikes, riding bikes in some lovely weather 😀


    Mabie, today…glorious,.there are some serious climbs I wasn’t aware of. Perhaps over estimated my abilties/fitness. Once round the red and I’m in bits, my arse is broken.

    No riding for the foreseeable here but it didn’t stop me blowing cash investing some quality time in my hobby.
