Delamere and the Packhorse Bridges

Delamere and the Packhorse Bridges

Ross led four more of us on a mystery tour taking in a remarkable number of new singletrack sections. From Delamere to the Whitegate Way, through to Oulton Park, Cotebrook, Primrose Hill then back over Old Pale for lunch back at our starting point. Mike had a disagreement with a rock, Eleanor had 2 punctures […]

Hey…see the video – courtesy of Alan’s Bikes http://www.hitthenorth.net/ I think the cameraman had a soft spot for El and Matthew! Looks a great course.

Polaris Challenge 13-14 June

Polaris Challenge 13-14 June

Take a look at this event http://www.polarischallenge.com/ and see if you fancy joining me to make up a team of 2. It’s basically endurance mountain biking orienteering?!

Delamere 17 Jan

Delamere 17 Jan

A bright but chilly morning saw 8 of us set off from the station cafe after tea and coffee. Up a winding track over Pale Heights to Primrosehill Wood where we hit the trails proper. The overnight rain had made it very slippy, especially over the tree roots which abound ( Steve leads Andy and […]

11 Jan Club run to Llandegla

11 Jan Club run to Llandegla

Thought I’d start a thread by creating a post, but it turns out it is on the bogblog not the Sunday runs blog – not as computer literate as I thought. Anyway, thanks to Alan and Ewart for getting us to the mountainbike centre at Llandegla through Holt, Rossett and Coedpoeth. Then back via a […]

We headed off to Moulton then over the Weaver to the Whitegate way and some lanes and tracks to Little Budworth. More tracks through the woods near […]

Sunday 23rd November 2008

Sunday 23rd November 2008

On waking up to pouring rain I nearly opted out of today’s run: but I’m glad I didn’t, we had a great ride. A fairly tortuous decision-making process at the start resolved itself with Martin leading one group going to Two Mills (the planned route to Loggerheads was deemed over-ambitious given the wind and rain) […]
