Where have you all been riding today?
All the way around the island of Guernsey. Again.
heh! When I was contracting in Guernsey, I was offered a job. The (or one) thing that put me off was that to do any decent length ride, I’d have to go round about 6 times.
The other thing that put me off was I went home with a ‘woman’ one night who almost managed to get me in a crying game situation. It was only because her boyriend turned up as we were heading upstairs and kicked off that I got out unscathed.Posted 7 years ago_tom_Member
Cannock, it was.. ok. Think I’m starting to see what the “xc trail centres are crap” brigade are on about now, it’s really quite dull. Downhill trail centres like FOD are great though 🙂 Could just be that I’ve ridden Cannock too much this year or that I’m going off xc as it’s just not as fun as the downhill I’ve been doing recently!Posted 7 years agoelaine anneMember

I rode the annual Calderdale Mountain Bike Marathon. 26+ miles around Sowerby Bridge, Midgley Moor,, Luddenden etc.. Had a rear tyre blow out and a minor off. Good hard ride with about 400 entrants.
I rode this event too. 1 head plant into a wall (thought I’d fubarred my lid, but luckily not) at the top of Stake Lane, 1 otb further down the same descent, 1 otb coming off Midgley Moor and a lost pair of Specialized glasses later, I came in with a PB of 2h 34m. More than happy with that. Although I could have done without losing me specs.Posted 7 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
Out in the Peaks on mostly non-legal trails. Christ the wind! Proper howling gale. Descending off one of the exposed moorland ridges near the Kinder plateau I couldn’t let the wheels get off the ground or it’d be blown sideways.
Out of the wind though it was lovely and warm and the few walkers that I saw were universally friendly and chatty, not a single mention of the fact I was on FPs.
The ground was mostly dry too, only a few small puddles which I was pleasantly surprised with.Posted 7 years agoalpinMember
took the fixie out around Munich. into Munich centre for breakfast then out towards Dachau. stopped off at the Panzer Wiese (massive old military exercise ground) to watch people fly kites. then out past the ugly Allianz Arena and follow the river for several km’s before heading east for an hour and then turning south to get home.
no map. hardly any roads. lots of cycle paths, families and sun. think i clocked up over 120km, but i forgot the taco thingy.
nice day, it were…Posted 7 years agoXyleneMember
I headed up to Thrunton today, at the turn off for the Coldstream road there was a big sign saying ” Road Works North of Long Framlington, delays expected’
Fair enough I thought, might have to sit at some traffic lights or do a convoy.
WRONG – bloody road was closed just before Thrunton with a detour in place.
If they had said road closed, I would have gone somewhere else straight away, rather than driving a further 10 miles.
Ended up at Chopwell woods, which was ok, but a bit muddy for my tyres.Posted 7 years ago
