Rode the ‘forbidden’ section of the BreconBeast. It was minus Stupid degrees in the wind at the top. So the blow-out on the rocky descent was not very welcome at all. And then I discovered that I’d forgotten to pack a spare tube…
Loads of SAS selection squaddies up there too, moving slowly but surely over the hills with 50lbs on their backs and a gun in their hands. Respect.Posted 7 years ago40mpgSubscriber
Found a secret bit of Hampshire which I have passed so many times on the A31 / A32 but completely missed – club ride from Selborne near Alton with some lovely singletrack through the woods and surprisingly big hills. I even admit to walking DOWN one! (It cosnsited of a deep steep gully with big chalk boulders hidden in the leaves)
Didnt get above freezing but wrapped up warm so didnt notice the cold. Welcome fire in the pub after.Posted 7 years agouponthedownsMember
Over the N Wessex and Marlborough Downs to Barbury Castle then back in time for afternoon tea and medals.
I’m ashamed to say it was the first time I’ve had the MTB out this year- felt like I was dragging a boat anchor around compared to the road bike but a clear, fresh day and nicely frozen mud meant it had to be done.Posted 7 years agooxym0r0nSubscriber
whereabouts do you ride around Sidmouth?? Peak Hill area? from my few visits there seem to be some decent bridleways around that bit.
Not my local haunt – down visiting the Parents, but yes lots of green lanes – Peak Hill and East Hill Strips. Just a case of linking bits together…

2 Pentlands rides here… Today was lovely, very cold, very snowy and very beautiful. Also very bloody hard work and very slow. But worth it. Very nice riding through fresh snow and realising your feet are dipping into it, we were leaving tyre marks and footprints I love these days…Posted 7 years agoampthillSubscriber
I thought it would be no ridding this weekend as I’m knackered, Experience tells me that as teacher its not a good time of year to worry about keeping fit
But my son asked to go on a ride yesterday moring. It was a short Woburn loop but we both really enjoyed it.Posted 7 years agoTandemJeremyMember
Too and from work last night and again tonight.
coming home in the morning was funny tho – I had my spike tyres on and was overtaking cars 🙂
I saw an ambulance behind me with blues and twos on – stopped to let it past and then it held me up all the way down the next hill.
Ruddy cold tho and the snow in my eyes hurtPosted 7 years ago
