The Last Ride

The last riding day in BC dawns cool, bright and sunny, perfect for a morning out on some local trails. A truck shuttle thanks to D’Arcy drops us at around 900m overlooking Howe Sound, always a good backdrop to any ride. At this height cool is now cold but a short pedal up and across […]

Back to BC

Its been a while since I rode in BC and I reckoned 2019 was about the kinda time I pulled my finger out and booked a ticket. I’ve not ridden downhill since the last trip to Les Arcs in 2015, too long, figured I had better do it while I stand a reasonable chance of […]

Our wait is rewarded on Sunday […]

Le Tour comes to God’s own county, Yorkshire!

How it comes to pass that the Tour starts in Leeds is a little beyond me, but with the worlds greatest cycle race passing the front door we had to take part.  The weather forecast is bleak, but in the best tradition of weather forecasters being wrong, the sun shone and shone. These fellas probably […]

Descend Hamsterley

The weather forecast wasn’t for blizzards, but thats what we got as we chomped our way through our butties of choice at Scotch Corner, full on, white out blizzard.  Its been four or so years since I visited Hamsterley. Why, why, why have I left it so long, other stuff to do I guess but […]

Coed y enduro

The Coed y Brenin Enduro seemed like the perfect way to exploit the balmy early Autumn Temperatures.  A day spent riding the best of Coed y’s trails, smooshy ups and fast technical downs, just the job.  Except it wasn’t.  The weather held good, so no complaints there. The trails, what trails?   The start bore […]

6.27 miles

Its been a while since we visited Stainburn near Otley, we need to go more often, just 6.27 miles and we are knackered, 1,657 feet of down means the same pushing up, 5 complete runs and a couple of sessioning bits just about did for us. I notice a slash in the sidewall of the […]
