- Who braved the rain this weekend
Travelled 200 miles down to the Forest of Dean for an afternoons down hill training with Scott Beaumont in preparation for the 661 Mini DH on the 6th of Dec. It banged it down for the full session but every minute was worth it. All three of us learned loads of little tips on berms, drops, wet roots and jumps which made it all worthwhile. I think we all got faster and faster throughought the afternoon. Still grinning from what was a first class experience.
The 200 miles drive back were horrendous
No pics taken but wished we had taken a waterproof camera

Been hibernating in Cumbria for the last few days, for obvious reasons.
May get out during the week though, depending when the call outs start to build up as the flood waters go down. Thinking I may head out somewhere tomorrow, maybe just (very) local though (so cheeky trails then!)Posted 8 years agoscotabroadMember
Fraid not its been tipping it down in D&G, spent most of yesterday rescuing the kids and other dinghies from the local club. The water was chest deep in the dinghy park, and waist deep inside the clubhouse. What a mess!!
Still its a lot worse for the folks who have been flooded out of their houses. 😐Posted 8 years agoRichPennyMember
Kind of did and didn't really. On Saturday went out on the mountain bike, spread mud around in the LBS then got a proper soaking.
Today got up at 9 very hungover, considered the thunderstorm outside and phoned my mate to cut short our road ride 🙁 Still out for 3 hours though, and had lovely sunshine. Was bloody windy on the exposed bits of the New Forest.Posted 8 years agoTrimixMember
Went out yesterday, just wet enough to be fun. Then today I went out on the motorbike – thinking it would not rain too hard. However, it got biblical on me.
Riding my motorbike in the wet is not much fun, but my mountain bike is perhaps more fun in the wet than the dry.Posted 8 years agoGravySubscriber
Left home this morning when it was quite sunny with gusty winds against me in open area's, made it to Theives Wood through miles and miles of sloppy slippy trails (great fun). Saw some familiar faces coping with a puncture, one fixing other 2 giving all the recommended encouragement and instructions when it just started to tip it down. The queue for the cup of tea was so long I did'nt bother and headed for home with the wind behind me giving me a very welcome push.
Nothing wrong with the rain. 🙄Posted 8 years ago
