    Didn't get out till 1 pm today but coulda stayed out for hrs. Damn her indoors' curfew! Roll on spring!

    I just got back from an amazing ride – I love this weather. I've just had pilchards on toast with sweet corn for my post-ride feed. Yum yum.

    Pilchards? Jeez, fair play to ya. Omega 3 and all that ha ha 🙂

    My post from a similar thread on Mleh………

    Morning – did a loop round Curbar Edge, Baslow, Pilsley, Hassop, Rowland, Calver, Curbar from the White Peak Guide.

    We **** up and ended up doing it backwards by mistake – which actually turned out to be the better direction by far. Couldn't feel fingers on first descent, but soon warmed up – glorious day and fantastic scenery. The actual riding was a 5/10 affair, but the morning as a whole gets a 9/10.

    Finished off with a 10 piece breakfast and coffee at the Calver crossroads outdoor shop/cafe.

    Dog walking on the moors this afters, followed by a pint and crisps at a village pub. Came home and cleaned bike whilst Mrs FBB cooked dinner. Now sat with a Jamesons Irish and just about to watch a film together – nipper included.

    Downsides to the day – I have two horrendously loose spokes where my cheese-like Roval rims have been dinged, and my Spesh E150 forks have a crack in the housing where the thru-axle pinch bolt sits. I shouldn't have too much problem with having the forks warrantied and Spesh reportedly tend to upgrade parts to newer kit where the forks are concerned. As for the rims, I should have known that a 1560 gramme wheelset spoked 24/28 wouldn't deal with the Peaks very well, however they are marketed as 'all mountain' and are stock on the S-Works Enduro. I expected a little more for my £400 odd.

    I too had a blast just in the local woods though! Both today and yesterday the weather was awesome!

    Sorry to hear about your troubles TAFKAS. Will see how my 1380gr ZTR build holds up, went for the replacement of the 355 as opposed to the replacement of the Olympic as for 30gr more I was getting a bit more peace of mind!

    Had a great ride over the South Downs in to the teeth of an icy wind. Sadly my ride was ruined a bit by an ignorant 'all the gear and no idea' goon on a £3000 bike, dressed like a factory pro and giver of dirty looks, if you're reading mate IT AINT MY FAULT YOU CAN'T GET YOUR SUPER BIKE UP THE SAME HILL THAT I JUST WENT UP ON MY SINGLESPEED! Grumpy turd.

    25 miles on the roadbike this afternoon on dry roads, wall-to-wall blue sky, views into the Dark Peak with snow still lying. Barely a breath of wind and didn't feel the cold too much either. Ace.

Finally decided to visit one of the Balck Mountain plane wrecks I had never been to and grab a geocache along the way.

    good pics Ambrose

    We were out last night for a 3 hour night ride – the stars were amazing.

    Went up Rhigos road, through to Skyline and then back over to Aberdare with a fast and furious decent into the country park around 10.30pm – bloody fricken freezing but great fun 😉

    Still snow on the tracks here, so skied the Carn Ban Mhor ridge above Glen Feshie – turns in the late afternoon on soft spring snow, lush.

    Great ride today. Bucketed down all day, but still good riding for the first wet ride of the year. Too wet to take photos as well. Roll on winter night riding after a long hot summer.
    Some of us remembered how to corner in the wet, others not so much.

    Still too much wet, grip-negating, wheel swallowing snow above 300m in the Pentlands for pedaling yesterday, so had a long walk carrying the bike instead… 🙄 . Enjoyed it all the same, feeling that better weather is nearly here.
