Seven riders on what turned out to be a spring morning with some sunny spells. A big range in abilities as you can see from this video! But we all enjoyed 2 hours+ on the singletrack around the forest.Thanks also to Andrew for plotting the approximate route with his iPhone http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=520531&code=2d357dc82f1843f131f13ffcc3a2e543
What a surprise to wake up to a thick blanket of snow Sunday morning, dashed my hopes of last minute training on the road bike for the Llanberis weekend. So I went round to Hartford Social club on the mountain bike where I met Jed on his trike and Jon on his mtb. We headed […]
Four of us made the start of this year’s race (Ross missed out) but Kev Underhill had the misfortune to snap his chain fairly early on. It was a well run event with over 150 riders racing round a varied course with everything you would expect for mtb or cyclocross – a bit of a […]
This is the top of Skiddaw which we might do weather permitting. We’ll certainly take in the fast, flowing Whinlatter Forest trails and some of the superb bridletracks around the Keswick area. I’ve booked Stybeck Farm Camping Barn at £12 each if we fill it. See http://www.stybeckfarm.co.uk/accommod.htm for a max of 10 people and we […]
Thanks to Ross for the pictures of Saturdays ride over at Primrose Wood.
A number of films about extreme mountain sports including mountain biking showing in Manchester. See http://banff-uk.com/ for more details, leave a comment if you fancy going and we’ll see if we can get a posse together.
Our first visit to Gisburn Forest had been eagerly awaited and the high turnout showed as much. Nick, Matt H, Kevin C, Eleanor, Andy, Derek, John, Rob and Richard made the journey north wondering what delights might await them.We knew it could still be snowy, so it was no surprise when we rolled into the […]
A new area for us to visit about 1.5 hrs drive away. Fantastic purpose built red and blue graded trails. We have had good reports about this place and there are plenty of other tracks to tackle, if we get bored, across the Trough of Bowland.

Great idea to go for a ride in the snow Kevin! Four of us enjoyed a superb ride with no mishaps or falls. This was the zig-zag route up Pale Heights. We kept off the roads as much as possible. A quick coffee at Delamere then lunch at Summertrees. Lots of the usual tracks and […]

Hope you all had a good Christmas and will be ready to get out for a ride to start fulfilling that New Year’s resolution. Riding off-road has all the benefits of riding on the road, but it’s a bit more fun at this time of year. Meet at Delamere Station cafe at 10am as usual, […]
Here’s some more of the Follow the Dog trail at Cannock, just as the snow started to fall and those are antlers on Richard’s helmet! Complete with bells. Be patient, it takes a few minutes to buffer – I’ll try to make them shorter in future. Apologies to Kevin who I cut away from.
