- Who’s been riding already today?
Me 🙂 8am start for a Malverns Dawn raid. Fantastic out there. Superb views, rock hard trails, some ice to keep you awake. Chilly tho, -5 when I left the house. The early start is probably the reason I forgot my camera. Shame as there is snow on the tops that looks great.
Now. Bacon Sarnies, pint of tea, some smugness and ready to tackle the not insignificant job of fixing the stairs 😉Posted 9 years agosimonralli2Member
It was surprisingly nippy today! I think we are getting the arctic blast too.
Just a local ride as I am recovering from a bug over Christmas and just wanted to see how bad I would feel out riding, which was a little bit bad but nothing too bad so should be ok by next weekend.Posted 9 years agohilldodgerMember
Yes, pretty ‘fresh’ it was as well !!
Went to some local woods I hadn’t been to for a while and was met by the dreaded site of ‘warning – forest operations’ signs.
I understand (and agree with) the concept of retaining the remnants of our heathland areas but why do they (Euroforest in this case) have to leave the area so damaged and inhospitable after they’ve finished felling.
Anyway, riding along 5-6 foot deep frozen tyre tracks was certainly a new experience but it’s going to be a sludgefest once it thaws and we’ve had some rain……….Posted 9 years agosimonralli2Member
Basically this cost me Â£290 from my local bike shop in Gibraltar. I bought it as much of my “ride from my house” rides are maybe 80% road and 20% farmtrack rides, i.e. that is the mix on a single ride. As far as i know it is the latest model.
I also bought it for pootling around locally as I wouldn’t wwant to leave my Kona locked up somewhere. I did buy a road bike but didn’t really enjoy it so I sold it and got this instead.
Yes – it is very good I have to say for the money. Nothing special, but seems to be quite a good spec for the money and I can’t fault it for what it is. In Gibraltar the choice is obviously limited, and it was either this, or a Raleigh.Posted 9 years agonickeggMember
Was up on the Mendips at half 8. Stunningly beautiful and no one around. Never ridden in such frosty conditions but loved it. Had great fun on a very secret section of singletrack that i have only had the pleasure of riding in damp conditions and in the dark. No need to drift the corners today, never ridden it that fast before.Posted 9 years ago
