Where you been today??
To the motor factors to buy new brake calipers for my car as one of the rears had seized on. Then wasting the day changing them and bleeding them (never done it before, so it was a learning process).
Why do people like to work on cars? Messy, cold and a waste of time.
Tomorrow will be Scolty Hill in Aberdeenshire.Posted 1 year agocarlosMember
Planned on riding Cadir Idris then a lap of CYB. Set off as you do CI, but turned round 3/4 the way up as it was blooming windy. Would’ve been silly to have pressed on up to the Trigg, so opted for the safer choice of cutting it short. Still had fun on the way back down and more than a couple of sketchy moments.
CYB car park was rammed but didn’t see that many out, 1x group of about 12, couple of couples and a coulee of solos. Had a giggle there as always, trails were riding nice and kept you out of the wind.
Stopped on the way back at the Rhug cafe near Corwen for a brew and bap, now happily chilling filled up with Pizza and a few beers, watching Prometheus

I done go been to work. On my way home now, an hour and 20 late as my taxi didn’t turn up to take me from the depot to the train station so I missed me train. Yay. You weren’t specifically asking where we’d been on bikes, were you? Haven’t been anywhere on mine for ages.Posted 1 year agowhitestoneMember
Nice one Ton! The first steps are the hardest.
Went for a wander over the over side of the valley to investigate a little network of bridleways I’d not been on before. Nothing technical but a few potential bivy spots.
Will probably head up to watch the Three Peaks race today.Posted 1 year agokiwijohnSubscriber
Went up my local trail to clear some trees. Put my back out big time moving a branch.Posted 1 year ago
Had to crawl back to my bike. Was thinking about calling someone to come & get me when some other riders came along & helped me up. Managed to walk my bike home.
Thankfully you can still get a doctor to do a home visit on a sunday afternoon, no painful trip to A&E. My wife had to get her brother to take her to the chemist for me.
Now facing a few uncomfortable days at home all because I tried to fix some trails.mikewsmithSubscriber

Planned 60km, ended up with 110km, who needs a plan
Cake was a lot more use than a plan…
and at some point I’ll perfect the art of the effortless looking road selfie…best go back to taking pics of the bike and cake I think
