What and where……This weekend?
A pentlands thrash with the Edinburgh Uni mob, who showed me a brilliant trail i’d never seen before, despite suspecting its existence and actually going out to look for it.
In return i showed them some nice rooty city singeltrack near Mortonhall, although had a minor off getting cheeky over some off camber roots.Posted 8 years agoHariboMember
Friday – day aff innerleithen with some lads from work, lunch then a quick blast round glentress
Saturday – supposed to be in a helicopter tour of the trossachs but a bit too gusty and cancelled 🙁
Sunday – quick 20miler on the orbea up some local big ol hills. Came back home after pulling a muscle in my stomach (note must get front mech fixed as those were some big hills for a big ring only job!)Posted 8 years agoSurfrMember
Like rOcKeTdOg I too was up at Nant-yr-Arian. I rode up from my house and did some of the Northern section of the Conti as well as some other bits and headed home from Pendam. Did ponder heading to the visitors centre for a cake but didn’t have time. I only passed one solo rider (female I think) all day passing in the opposite direction near Nant-y-Moch on the wet section. STWer? No photo’s but here’s the route I did.

42 mile puncture fest(7 in total) on the road bike. On the rolling Suffolk countryside, 400m of ascent logged. Tought I was doing well at about 30 miles when a proper roadie cruised past on an uphill section (he did say hello though). First ride of the year in a short sleeve jersey with no cover layer.Posted 8 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Bury to Blackley off road to visit Ms Spanners mum & dad (Dad was 76 on Saturday – still runs fell races). A whole 10 miles……
Pair of (non matching :lol:) Lobsters.
Sunday – marshalling & taking pictures at the Muddy March Hare fell race in Bolton. Then visiting new arrival to the family (hello Kieran…4 days old, very cute).
I’m off to scare myself at Lee Quarry this afternoon.Posted 8 years agobuzz-lightyearMember
Some Q time with the GF, but squeezed in 1.5h in the local woods on the old HT (trails still muddy) + an hour of fettling in the “shed” (mainly putting on a spare rear wheel as the freehub was shot on the original).
I’m having Wednesday off for a half-day somewhere as I’m having an unusually quiet week and the weather is nice – not decided where yet.Posted 8 years ago
