who was out riding today ?
Very nice weather on Mendip. Intermittent sunshine, 10 degrees, light breezes. The trails were in the best nick since Novemeber. There were even some completely dry and grippy sections!
I had a go at the steep bit on “Bottle Bank” and had a low-speed slide out where I lost grip while braking hard to get around a steep, muddy corner. No harm done.Posted 6 years agolemonysamMember

Had a good session at Armathwaite woods yesterday including an OTB on steep bit, straight into a tree trunk. Short of time this afternoon but did manage to drive to Newcastleton to ride, only to find I had left my front wheel in the back yard at home! Pesky kids distracted me when getting stuff packed.Posted 6 years agoSue_WMember
Yey, me too!
A brisk 4 and a half hour road ride, with an “invigorating” weather mix of hail storms (ouch!) and sunshine, passing snowy road banks and fields of spring lambs.
Plus discovered a great mid-ride pub: http://www.theoldstag.com/ Heartily recommended if you’re ever in the Conwy / Betws area.

Working today 🙁
But managed to single speed my ragley at lunch (long lunch!).
Went out for a couple of hours after work and loving the single speedification of the mmmbop!
Its loads lighter than the inbred i canabalised for the bits.

Around the Derwent reservoirs with the familiy – cold but still lovely, and the meat pies at Fairholmes were welcome. Reservoirs were fuller than I’ve seen for years, wioth water running down the face of the two higher dams, and disappearing down the plughole at Ladybower

Chris L was Northwind riding a Cove F/s , think I might have spotted you both at the bottom of the pierun about 2.45.?
Northwind was on his Hemlock and I was riding my Mojo. We did stop and chat to someone on a green Cove Hustler at the top of the Pie Run so if that’s the Cove you saw then we were in the area at about the same time.Posted 6 years ago
