- Where have you been cycling this weekend? (& pics?)
coz I’ve been to Swinley & Cannock!
really enjoyed Swinley, never been before. After 30 minutes I found a parking spot then set about the trails. Very good, lots of flow, LOTS of berms, berm city in fact. Loved the downhill bits. My local centre is Cannock and in comparison Swinley is very peddaly as it’s so dam flat. I’d defo go back to Swinley but they do need to enlarge the car park.
Where have you lot been? been pretty good weather. any pics through them up!Posted 1 year agocuyahogaMember
At the minute the first section, The Snake, is closed for another couple of weeks to fill in the bathtub-sized holes. The boardwalk at the top is closed, I think for a couple of months due to needing complete replacement. Pretty sure the Hope Line is back open, as there was a skills training course using it one time I passed the bottom.
I was there to grind out the miles for basic fitness around the blue loop, so the closures didn’t bother me…Posted 1 year agohairyscarySubscriber

I rode with a HRM for the first time and discovered that even if I beast myself uphill my heart rate is still a fair bit higher on the descents!

I’ve got this cold that seems to be doing the rounds, but wanted to get a feel for the new forks on the fat bike. So, I took it up to the Moray Monster Trails and tried to take things very easy. Not really my sort of riding, but I did manage to set my slowest ever times on all the climbs. So, mission accomplished. Spent Sunday putting the lighter summer tyres back on 🙂

Felt rough so nothing, zilch, diddly squat.
But took my kids to round 1 of the southern xc at Wasing. Was caught off guard as although we’ve all raced there before, it’s always been dry, buff and superfast. But yesterday it was mud-clag-mageddon. Mud tyres all left at home – doh!
So result was 2 dnfs, 2 bent mech-hangers, 1 snapped rear mech and the van was stuck for a bit. Awesome.Posted 1 year agonedrapierSubscriber
Bivi ride out to a little pond. Nearly scuppered by a stick in a SS tensioner 2 miles from home. Tensioner was mangled, but gear was Magic! link out, absolutely perfect tension.
Nice being near to the water and listening to the waterfowl. Different noises to the little tweeters we get at home. Good to be back on the fattie, too.
