- What type of riding do most STW's actually do?
buzz – true but also some people prefer a pootle on bridleways whereas others throwing themselves down a hill (I know many like both, me included but overall I would go for techy over bridleway riding and I am just trying to see if there is a consensus from the STW massif!)Posted 4 years ago
Anyway gonna finish work shorltly, then off for a ride (techie xc 😉 ) before the pub and back to read the humorous replies received on this thread…..jamesoSubscriber
If I ride a loop that’s just ‘XC’ on my MTB, is it ‘Technical XC’ when I ride it the next week on a CX bike? A sort of genuine Q, the terrain and bike makes the grade?
I’m not into genre-types, I just ride places where the trails are fun for some reason. Flow, attention to lines, interest, sections I can only clear half the time, pretty places, anything. My type of riding is just getting outdoors and feeling like I’ve been somewhere on a bike when I’m never going anywhere really.Posted 4 years agowordnumbMember
I would mostly class my riding as BP, or Between Pubs.
Edit – sorry, thats technical BP, obviously.
Seems to get more technical as the ride progresses.
2nd Edit – I should read the other posts above…Posted 4 years ago
Rogerthecat has the right idea. About pubs and cycling.
Rogering cats is just plain wrong however._tom_Member
DH/FR with a very occasional bit of trail centre and the very very rare xc ride at somewhere like the Long Mynd. I get my weekly miles in on the road bike then have fun on the mtb on days off. Oh and bmx at the skatepark sometimes if I cba to drive somewhere to ride. Or dirt jumps if I only want a short drive. We’re soon moving to a new place which has a 2 acre field, I should be able to build my own dirt jumps there so I’ll mostly be riding that as of a few months!Posted 4 years agobusydogMember
Almost all of my riding is mountain singletrack (and forest service roads to access trails), ranging from fairly easy to very technical (which I do with a varying degree of success) and, of course, the occasional sections of “hike-a-bike”.Posted 4 years ago
Don’t ride on the road—drivers here scare the crap out of me.ScapegoatSubscriber
I love organic bridleway stuff…. loads of local loops, and planned all day bridlecore shizz.Posted 4 years ago
I have a 150 bouncer and a 120 steel hardtail, and interchange according to mood and how bad my hip is hurting this week.
I love red graded trail centres….I love going fast on fast easy stuff, and I like it when I can cure my constipation on the rocky stuff, so think Penmachno, Marin, Mabie, Kirry etc, but I’m frit of big drops and woodwork….. there, I’ve said it. I don’t think I’ve ever really ridden that sort of woodland loamy stuff everyone raves about, as most of the bridleways round here are millstone grit and dogshit. Which is ace.
I have been known to enjoy places like ‘Degla too.
