Due to me having flu, Matthew led the ride from Dealmere Station cafe. Thanks to him for this report and the videos –
This first vid is of Mike, (Kev and Elenor’s daughter’s boyfriend) cracking what’s known as the ‘road gap’. It’s about 6 foot drop from take off to landing, and I reckon 20 feet forward travel. There’s NO WAY anyone else who rides out with us would try this, and it was snowy, making getting enough take off speed a tricky proposition.
Second one is a bit of a mickey take, but I’m sure Derek will be along shortly to tell how particularly skilled I was yesterday
He did manage to get these tyres to stick to everything else as well yesterday and monstered every climb whilst everyone else pushed in his wake. Like the look of this? come and join us in the forest some time. If you haven’t got an MTB, or can’t borrow one, the hire bikes are pretty decent stuff and not expensive for 1/2 a day.
