What was your best ride of 2010?
Kirroughtree I think.
Great weather, riding with friends and the skills coaching I’d had the day before was working so it all felt effortless. The trail’s not bad either of course.
Or Trekster (of this parish) showing me and the same pals round the Mabie secret trails the day after that. Brilliant steep, loamy fun – and again I felt like I’d really upped my game.Posted 7 years agoWaderiderMember
Either a three week Glasgow-Oban-Barra-Vatersay-Barra-Erriskay-South Uist-Benbecula-North Uist-Berneray-Harris-Lewis-Skye-Glen Roy bike tour (photo a bivvy on top of An Clisham, with my bike hidden behind a peat hag lower down)
or a week ultra lightweight on the R8 going Fort Bill-Mallaig-Camasunary-Sligachan-Kyle-Ratagan-Great Glen-Glen Roy (photo of Camasunary bay)
For a day ride I’m unsure, best was probably my local trails about the end of April/start of May when it was dry and super fast 😀Posted 7 years agocrezzySubscriber

3 here all stick in my mind.
The MTL in March was great with an overnight in Hebden. 3 unfit chaps made it round in awful weather.
Uplift at Innerleithen was superb. Shame that all but myself and a mate were too tired / injured to do GT the following day.
Week with The White Room and 17,000 vertical meters of descending in 5 days was simply awesome, if that can be classed as 1 ride that is.Posted 7 years agostevehSubscriber
I’ve done so much riding this year that it’s hard to remember them all. A few things stick in my mind though…
Taking my dh bike to the top of snowdon and back in the sun.
A 3 day whistle stop dh bike trip of some german/french alpine resorts in May. 4 vans and lots of road trip fun.
First run down a new cheeky trail, now in my top 3 peak district trails.
Last run down another one railing the corners at the top.
In fact I might go do that last one again tomorrow night over the tick of midnight.Posted 7 years ago
