Your weekends riding
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 🙂Posted 7 years agoPhilbyMember
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.Posted 7 years agoluked2Member
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.Posted 7 years agofunkynickSubscriber
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..Posted 7 years agoSannySubscriber
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. 😯
