    10 Under the Ben yesterday… Bit of a so-so showing, couldn't find the enthusiasm to get myself out for a 4th lap, after one frustrating lap, one miserable one and one really good one. Good day but I'm not totally sure racing's for me, I think I'd sooner have just been out riding the good bits and ignoring the rotten bits. Our 3 became a 2, I don't think I'm really built for racing in pairs πŸ™‚

    Badly, good dose of the random fatigue reduced grand plans to a saturday pootle, exhausting, and a sunday rest πŸ™


    Nottingham to Sheffield yesterday @ 64 miles

    Sherwood Pines today @ 20 miles

    Brilliant weather, and brilliant riding! 4 day week as well this week πŸ˜€

    Just come in from a fab ride round walsden. In dust we trust…


    Quick road ride Saturday morning with my son.
    Quick offroad ride by myself saturday afternoon
    Slightly longer and harder road ride this morning.

    Almost a hundred miles in total. Nice.


    103 mile road sportive (Black Rat Sportive) round the Mendips and surrounding areas on Sunday – weather was appalling with rain and wind for most of the ride, only clearing up for the last 15 miles or so. Would be a lovely route if the sun was shining.

    Feeling completly knackered now.

    Here's those new kickers on Xmas Trees with a brave kid jumping the big 'un. The sensibly small one is just in front of it and slightly obscured..


    The pup and I had a little pootle over the Surrey Hills.

    Went exploring for a change rather than just riding the usual suspects and found some interesting little runs, which was nice.

    Quick blast on Saturday local, shouldn't have bothered as I was running on empty. Didnt enjoy it at all.


    Cycled to Work Sat morning on my new HT. After building it all week and thrashing it to work I put my back out again so Sat afternoon and Sunday was laid up πŸ™


    Sat – Solo, Marple into an extended Hayfield Orbital, just under 30 miles.
    Sun – Hayfield 3/4 orbital with GF, just under 15 miles.

    Very, very dry and sandy πŸ™‚ Also, not too hot πŸ™‚


    Bucks off road sportive, 121km.

    Glorious day out riding, apart from some absurdly wet rain about an hour before the finish.

    Took my nice new Singular Swift along, which I just found myself enjoying more and more as the day wore on – first big proper ride for it. I honestly think gears would have spoiled the ride.

    Met a few other single speeders – some guys from Birmingham gave me the mental strength to carry on when my legs had discovered the joys of walking (i.e. they dropped me on a climb).

    Unfortunately my body seems to have stopped working properly this morning. Which is why I'm sat here posting on STW rather than getting on with my life.

    After not having ridden anything for quite some time, quite why I thought it would be a good idea to go over to Cannock to ride the new trail on my Inbred, with a buggered front derailleur, so no granny ring. I think not realising just how much climbing they have managed to find for the Monkey Trail may have helped in this decision…

    Oh how I regretted it… and still ache now..


    Offerton Green to Chester and back on road early Saturday morning and then dragged round Meadowhell in the afternoon.


    rode both days. local one saturday, chase on sunday.

    sh*t weekend though. managed to bust the back wheel on the s/s on the way home sat.
    then to top it all off,managed to bust a thumb coming off on the monkey.
    just in time for margam πŸ‘Ώ


    Just the one – out with my boys on Sunday. Eldest riding, youngest in chariot on rear of mine. 7 miles – pleased with how the eldest (7) tore round it and was ready for more πŸ™‚

    Looking forward to a 'grown up' ride tomorrow mind.


    Bucks off road sportive too, did the 121km.
    Never been so far on a bike in a day before, struggle to get to the office this morning its on the first floor. Rain towards the end was very cold not what you need after a few hours in the saddle.

    Rode up above Derwent on Saturday, had a great day with lunch at the Ladybower Inn half way round



    rode the monkey trail at cannock saturday morning. What a SH!T trail that is. a series of rubbish descents linked by miles of boring climbs. all the downhills stop just as they get good. was really disappointed with it.

    Premier Icon Sanny

    Rode the Fife Coastal Path in a day with my mate Marky Mark. What a terrific day out. Blue skies, sunshine and a tailwind. We took it pretty easy stopping regularly for pictures, food, more food, more pictures (you get the drift). Miles of great singletrack and coastal footpaths. I was astounded that we only saw two other cyclists on the trails. 😯





    what's so bad about the monkey?
    compare it to the riding we've got over at sherwood,it's **** awesome πŸ˜€
