A nice video compilation of some of the best club rides..
Big thanks to all who turned up to repair Daisybank dirt jumps this weekend. It was an epic couple of days of dirt moving and packing in. I still cannot quite believe how much we achieved and how good the summer is going to be riding up there.
Last Friday (March 23rd) representatives from Cheltenham & County CC and Bigfoot MBC reached what we considered as a workable riding agreement with Natural England and the forestry manager
With our two clubs having recently collaborated in trying to negotiate the return of mountain biking to Buckholt Woods we furthered this partnership with a superb gravity riding day at the downhill trails near to Ribbesford
It is suitable for everyone and there are alternative lines for any technical sections, any mountain bike will do.
See you up there
Big grins loam drift action!
I am proposing Saturday 8th August, with the aim of getting there for about 3pm. We can take in some pubs and head back for early evening. Please contact me if you are interested in this so I can get an idea of numbers. It's about time we had a summer beer tour - I think the last was a Donningtons one a few years back.
We have access to 108acres of lightly wooded/ scrub land with up to 120m drop. The plan is to build a selection of DH tracks with varying styles and technical abilities. The area is completely different to Lecky so we can have a good selection of trails.
The site will be a club members only spot but we will run some form of events for the general public. Keep your eye on this blog for the latest information.
