Who else had a day off and ride in the sunshine?
A cheeky skive yesterday afternoon, for a dozen miles or so in Wyre and met a “colleague” for a quick ride round some new bits ( to us) off piste at Cannock Chase earlier today. Lovely sunshine and tan line requiring long sleeves for when I’m back at the office on friday.Posted 5 years ago
Looks like many of you have had some really nice rides in the sun this week. Good on yer !andehMember
Rode Castleton and Ladybower on Friday also, Blue BFe with stupid bars. Got to the top of Mam Tor for about 11, couldn’t see a thing! Fog and children everywhere, very strange.
Did the same loop again today, clear from Mam Tor! Got a bit wild on the way down though, nearly nailed myself on a sandy corner into a rock garden. Pretty sure I got mild heat stroke as I felt dead funny on the train home. Managed to bag a couple of KOMs on Strava too, still a second or 2 off the shorter Beast segment mind. Loads of walkers and a few bikes out.Posted 5 years agobikebouyMember
Hello, well I kicked it today, I did the SDW from Arundel to The Millburrys (near Winchester. Now I know the convention is to do it the other way but hey, oh and one more thing.. I did it on my winter hack Roadie… I know..! I didn’t change a thing, slicks (well GP4’s) and the same gearing. It was a little hard at times with the gravel and scree but all in all it was just hard pack chalk and singletrack.. The sun shone all day, I’m sunburnt and in need of a pint.Photo of “daisy” later when I’ve sorted the upload to Picassa out..Posted 5 years agowinryaMember
I’ve been lucky enough to have the week off. The other halfs birthday so couldn’t spend the whole week biking.
However, done the longmynd loop, new hopton woods route and the downhill tracks, the beast of Brenin which I haven’t done for over a year which was spectacular yesterday in the sun and a visit to cannock chase which due to the weather was actually quite fun.
Bike performed a treat, not sure there is a better way to spend my time 🙂Posted 5 years agobobarioMember
went to penmachno for the first time and did both loops. i was a bit out of my depth to be honest, it was a bit hair raising. managed two minor offs and a couple of near misses. weather was excellent and the trail was more or less bone dry apart from on the lee side of the hill which was waterlogged. brilliant views wish i had taken a camera with me.Posted 5 years ago
met a couple of other riders which is a rarity at penmachno i believe, hello to the bloke on the white pivot who passed me up the fireroad just over halfway round, next time i’ll catch ya.bikebouyMember
I’m feked orf with picassa I can’t upload my photo of “daisy” my winter hack (boardman team carbon roadie) when I do, you’ll understand why I call her “daisy”
I wore 3/4 bibs, merino underlayer and roadie top, I was baking, temp gauge said 28C at one point (optimistic??) can’t believe it was ever that hot.
Had me pint now at The Flower Pots in Cheriton.. burpidge.Posted 5 years ago
