who was out riding today ?
Made a big effort yesterday – took the single speed up some Malvern ridges that Ive not tried before – blew my lungs out of my arse 🙂
Went out as soon as the front had passed through this afternoon for a favourite timetrial on the pompino. Both me and the bike needed a good hose down afterwards – the roads were deep in mud and cow shit 🙂Posted 6 years agorusty90Member
I had a great ride this morning, until I slipped on some ice in a breaking bump, crashed into a dog and smashed the eggs I was carrying.Posted 6 years ago
And then I noticed my brake cable has worn away some of the paint on the head tube.
So I’m jacking it in – it’s snooker for me from now on.xcentricMember
Bishop’s Wood – new area to me – nw of Stafford – muddy, wet, singletrack with brambles across, but fun. got mildly lost when the track was diverted onto the road for half a mile, but not working from memory and no map may have contributed to that. Sandy grinding paste, hail, and whistling wind howling through the bare hedges made it less fun for a bit, but then the sun came out for the final blast down the fc track and singletrack back to the car. Frozen hands from washing the bike at home, but great hot shower, and dozed in front of the recorded rugby afterwards. Good afternoon out.Posted 6 years agoAlexSubscriber
3 Times! Did you have some kind of target on you? 😉
Malverns just now on the MTB. Somewhere between dry and slop. Fun but requiring concentration and commitment. Absolutely rammed with people. Good job we know lots of trails no one else seems to use. Cross bike yesterday, MTB today – good weekend 🙂Posted 6 years agoGlennGMember
25 miles in the glorious sunshine around Chichester and Goodwood on the ss rigid swift on my own, felt really good to be out with stunning views across Chichester harbour and over to isle of wight and reasonably warm in the sun. Linked up loads of bridal ways that I have never done before and have now got a nice little xc loop together, not fast or techy but good fun, what a quality day 😀Posted 6 years agopaddy0091Member
@ Alex I know! You’d think I did.
Idiot 1 – driver pulled out from a car park causing me to slam the brakes on and swerve round. Her reaction “Yeaaah, I saw ya-uh” no apology.
Idiot 2 – on a cycle lane that’s part of the road, guy in an Audi skimmed past about 5″ away from me on a ridiculously wide road, obviously he couldn’t be bothered to move out.
Idiot 3 – An old bat who refused to allow me to pull off from a set of lights at the front of a line of traffic, skimming past me while accelerating. I caught her up and asked her to give me just two seconds to pull off. She accused me of swerving out in the road.
Idiot 4 – forgot about this one, Mr Bigman in his BMW speeding past me in a 30mph zone leaving a few inches.
Happily see them all off a cliff.Posted 6 years agoormondroydMember
Nice day. Went to check out a load of trails around Buckleberry in Berkshire which I’ve never ridden despite living in Reading. Very muddy in parts (obviously) and a lot of 4×4 and motocross damage in others, but still found a lot of nice singletrack that will be great in the spring. Kicking myself for not heading out that way before. But hey, better late than neverPosted 6 years ago
