- Where did you get to today??
The first decent day for…. Er ages really and wanted to make the most of it. Met a couple of other guys for a ride out and did a great loop from Marple > Hayfield > Jacobs > Edale > Roych Clough > Hayfield > Rowarth > Marple. 32 miles full of smiles and some proper LOL moments 😀
Weather was perfect, yeah there was standing and in places running water but Jesus, what a day for it considering the shite weather we’ve had. Chatted to a couple of walkers and a couple of other Mtb’ers but tbh it was pretty quite on the actual route.
Pretty disappointed with Coldwell Clough as it’s been sanitised with 30-50mm mot type gravel/stone and it’s very very draggy from the bottom up to where you can turn left on Kinder Low. Meant a bit if a push from the first gate but fingers crossed it’ll bed in and settle/bind together better
Roll on more days like today.Posted 4 years agotthewSubscriber
Few hours out on the road bike this morning. Perfect weather here in Cheshire, and I didn’t even get overtaken by an e-bike.
Gave blood this afternoon, and am now doing as I’m told and drinking plenty. Mrs Tthew doesn’t think red wine counts, but as the nurse didn’t specify I’m sticking with my plan.Posted 4 years agooli31Member
Afan on a new build, just a few puddles and two fallen tree’s to negotiate in over 32km. FC and Cognation doing a top job there!
Was an absolute beaut of a day very busy car park but only passed a couple of folk the whole day and didn’t have to cue for bike wash. . . nice!!!Posted 4 years agodannyhMember
Local yokel stuff for me today (the various mtb enclaves that exist in Charnwood). Loads of walkers, so didn’t do anything too cheeky, but had a great time sessioning some short fun bits and sliding it all over the shop – feet up. I love it when one particular corner makes me feel like a riding god two wheel drifting (despite the next one leaving me balled up behind a tree)!Posted 4 years agoDugganMember
Local loop up to Lyme Park, Disley and over to the Roman Lakes before heading back to Manchester. Been a while since I’ve been out and if I’m honest the last 45mins were a struggle. Great to be out though.
Descent down Linnets Clough was ruined by guys on crossers coming up the other way though, bit disappointing, I was saving that one til the end.Posted 4 years agonikkMemberjonbaMember
Set out at 8:30. Witnessed the police sorting out a very recent car accident then two riders coming the other way hitting the deck all due to bad black ice.
Went home – covered about 5 miles
Jumped on Mountain bike to hear some really nasty noises. Jumped on second mountain bike, equally nasty.
Replaced SS drive chain (a job I’ve been putting off for about 6 months) and sorted the rear mech on my other one.
Then eventually did a 50 mile road ride this afternoon. It was lovely. Wish I’d been able to get out for longer.
Noticed plenty of snowdrops in the verges – spring is coming!Posted 4 years agosimmySubscriber
Only got out about 2.15 as I’d a few bits to sort out at home and dogs to walk. Did 24 miles on the MTB just on the old railways and few farm tracks on the way back.
It’s been a busy week with a couple of bad times so was nice to get out.
Think I’ve pushed it a bit too much on the climbs being stubbon and refusing to gear down, legs are sore now.Posted 4 years ago
