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.Posted 10 years ago
Pilchards? Jeez, fair play to ya. Omega 3 and all that ha ha 🙂Posted 10 years ago
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.Posted 10 years ago
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!Posted 10 years ago
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!

Finally decided to visit one of the Balck Mountain plane wrecks I had never been to and grab a geocache along the way.Posted 10 years ago

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 😉Posted 10 years ago

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.Posted 10 years ago
Some of us remembered how to corner in the wet, others not so much.
