- Who's been out where today?
Damp and drizzley this morning but what the heck ! Had a cracking ride round Thursden Valley, Widdop, Gople and Hurstwood res, not many braving the weather, only saw a couple of lads heading up from Hustwood as I dropped down.
Oh and I cleaned the climb up from Widdop res to the top of Gople, not super technical since the surfacing work but still steep so I guess I’m getting a bit stronger. The road riding I’ve done since NYD paying off now.
Not my pics BTW

A blast round the monkey and dog at cannock, one emergency mechanical before we started had to replace Bottom Bracket on my P7 in the car park, after that was a great ride. Dry trails?? this time of year no puddles, felt a bit cold post ride, otherwise an enjoyable morning. Was a gentle reminder of how unfit im allowed myself to get over the winter.Posted 7 years agoracefaceec90Member

Today has been a day of vegging, did the Dirtschool trail high school at Glentress yesterday, not a massive amount of distance covered but lots of pushing back up and riding again and enough thinking to destroy my brain completely So having a day off, and off to do a mixed innerleithen red/black/dh ride tomorrow instead.Posted 7 years agobuzz-lightyearMember
Qs with Snaps and Rainbow. Beautiful day: Snaps led us around: Great Bear, Dowsborough, Holford, Dog Pound, Smiths, Willoughby Cleeve, Lady’s Edge, Bicknoller, Triscombe, Jambo and Sharki (yay!), Chimney, Ramscombe and back to Dead Women’s Ditch.
Many of the trails were dry and fast, but some still had wheel catching mud pots to watch out for. My downhilling ability was coming and going which made things interesting. Smiths was terrifyingly fast as usual, not helped by my eyes streaming and riding the steeper rock/rooty section virtually blind – I was close to losing it! All good fun.
Best of all, back feels pretty good – I’m very very glad. 😀Posted 7 years agocpSubscriber
Lovely 70km road ride in the peaks. Windy and I decided on a particulalry hilly route, but loved it, bar the person towing a caravan who tried to take me out – think they forgot they had a caravan behind them!
But lambs, blossom, daffodils and a but of warmth in the air got me excited that spring is on it’s way 🙂Posted 7 years agosimondbarnesMember
Roadie clubrun out to Poole Marina. Bloody filthy conditions, good ride though 🙂 My new wheels are lovely.
And my Sabbath continues to put a smile on my face.
377km since last Sunday 🙂Posted 7 years agooreetmonMember
up rivi (bolton/horwich) great hill loop/decent as it was pssing it down and its a bit drier. took my five for one last go of the ‘MISTRESS’ before she is traded in for the new 2011 orange five frame.
**** gutted as i just didnt ‘feel it’ today,,,,no flow etc, it was supposed to be a memorable ride but it wasnt, fell off 3 times, gutted as i usualy nail the same decents with a grin 8) but in my defence it was a bit slippy and i did big rides fri night and sat day so i will put it down to being tired. have took loadsa photos of the ‘MISTRESS’ being stripped,,, oh-er 😉 , feels as though im splitting up with my one true love, im sure that the next girlfriend,,, erm,,, frame, will take my mind off it.
possible 4 week wait for a new ‘MISTRESS’ due to the colour i have chosen. will have to ride the ‘WHORE’ (456) until then.

lee/ cragg quarry with Crag (above) among others.
left beautiful yorkshire weather as we passed over the tops and began the descent into dull, dreary, wet lancashire. wouldn’t expect anything else 🙄
oh, and i’m sorry to say that i took no heed of last nights ‘right of way’ post as i belted down the link trail, hitting every rock jump on the way 😀Posted 7 years ago
2 of us went to do the crompton moor and denshaw route that is in this months s t mag , was a nice change of route but spoilt by the mist a little . We ended up going wrong a bit and went over the motorway foot bridge and coming down the roman road into littleborough so it was a bit longer but our car was parked at summit so was ok for us . Plenty of other bikers out despite the poor weather , will go again in clear weather to enjoy what should great views .Posted 7 years ago
