Well that was a wet one!
Supposed to be racing at Black Park but I got over-enthusiastic trying to get my fitness together and buggered my Achilles. So I’m instead reading your post enviously and confusing myself with IS / Post Mount brake brackets and square taper sizes.

TBH we need some rain after whats been an incredibly winter! Luckily the trails at Woburn dry so fast. Big difference from friday arvo, just as deserted (which considering the beautiful sunny weather and perfect trail conditions was suprising).
I ended up putting a bit more air in my shocks on friday because everything has sped up so much as the trails have dried. But a few more days like this and i’ll be letting those 15psi back out again……. 😉Posted 6 years agoMatt24kSubscriber
Wicked ride across the Malverns, which I usually avoid on Sundays but was practically deserted today. Experienced high side winds and sleet, rain and snow. Someone had built a decent sized snowman on slopes of the Worcester Beacon! I encountered a few walkers on my return leg, but only saw 2 other bikers, and most of the time felt like I was alone in the wilderness. Absolutely gopping dirty, but brilliant ride.
edit: Oddly it is now bright, clear and sunny here at home. Weird weather today!Posted 6 years agojohnhighfieldMember
Yep – did about 2 hours / 18 miles in the wet & gore!
It was only a slight drizzle when I went out at 8.30 & was prepared to abort the regular ride but 3 others had braved the elements – so off we went…
Did the local tracks around Hitchin / Gt Offley – but the slightest bit of rain & they mud-up on the surface & become v skittish.
Hosed the bike off & then got the wife to hose me off!!

Spent a few very happy hours on the MTB today. Riding new trails (new to me) in sunshine with a very light breeze. Very light dusting of snow at the high point made it look very picturesque
The fact that you lot were freezing or drowning your knackers off makes my ride even more sweet. Thanks!
I’m sure normal Scottish weather will resume shortly.Posted 6 years agoGarry_LagerMember
Did the Dark and White trailquest at Hayfield – the 3 hrs of pishing rain was expected but I was surprised how cold it was – snowing higher up.
Pretty miserable tbh – the warm glow of satisfaction of hearing the control’s beep was spread pretty thin. Stingy placements meant each one felt hard-earned.Posted 6 years ago
