    What bike have you been riding this weekend?

    Where have you been riding this weekend?

    A nice week in N Wales on a Felt Virtue One at Penmachno 1 & 2, Marin trail twice final descent 4 times!, The beast and Llandegla which was the best of em all… Can’t wait for some more!!

    And my legs are aching!


    I was on my Kona Caldera riding north east of Casares.

    Got a great pic of Gibraltar popping up from the low cloud, with Morocco behind

    And yeah, my legs are a bit more wobbly than they should be after my gear cable went, leaving me with just 4th gear.

    I am looking forward to riding Penmacho but no idea when I will be there.

    Chilterns, nice trails; drying. 40ish miles on the Chameleon



    Just came back from a superb ride at Dalbeattie, it was like a summers day, it was roasting (well compared to the last 6 months) trails were dusty dry.
    I was riding my new Tracer which seems to be getting better with every ride. I was hoplessly slow though, think I did too much on the road bike yesyerday.
    Long live the good weather!!!!!

    Yesterday – Orange Clockwork (Singlespeed) – Up the Leeds – Liverpool Canal & a quick loop round Shipley Glen (would have been longer but for a wobbly headset)

    Today – Focus road bike – upto Beamsley – Langbar – back to Otley up the Chevin and back home

    Today Tilberthwaite…great trails, sun shining, swift half in the pub, and time to just play about on bikes! 😆

    It wasn’t til the end of the ride that we realised Little Miss FC’s forks has flipped round when we had to adjust the bars to ge it on the rack!! 😳

    And a headless MrFC! 😉



    Blinging my shizzle down da King’s Road innit? Chelsea Styleeeee on my Enduro.

    To be honest, 6″ of travel is a bare minimum for the mean streats of SW London.

    To Barnes, for a decent spot of lunch in the sun.

    Today – Nant Y Arian blue trail twice. Was on the 9 speed Trailstar, due to mechanicals on the other steeds. Not the bike i’d have chosen, but was all good in the end… maybe 9 is all i’ll ever need!. Arms knackered from day of pumping round bmx track!! Again nice n sunny..
    Spotted rOcKeTdOg munching in the visitor centre….
    Dude im not a stalker, just recognised ya from the piccie above. i was the big fella sporting the inappropriate green pisspot helmet, getting very bored waiting in the queue for food!
