A few good runs

A nice video compilation of some of the best club rides..

Daisybank dig weekender 2012

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.

Buckholt Wood riding agreement

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

Cheltenham & County and Bigfoot MBC hit Ribbesford

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

For anyone that hasn't ventured up to Bushcombe yet, then here's something to whet your appetite...


Corrective Thursday Bushcombe

This weeks Corrective Thursday evening will be up Bushcombe DH. The track is not finished but can be ridden top to bottom (Full runs all the way).

It is suitable for everyone and there are alternative lines for any technical sections, any mountain bike will do.

See you up there

Ride Aston Away Day

We are going to visit the fabled lands of Aston Hill on Saturday 8th August, this will be a day of DH 4X and XC. Just a push day but very fun tracks to be had.

First Ride Bushcombe DH

A few of us went up Bushcombe DH track to try it out on Thursday. First impressions are that it rides well and holds a good flow, we knew that some sections still need some work but we have only been working on it for a couple of weeks!

Big grins loam drift action!

Nailsworth Beer Tour

I am trying to put together a Real Ale tour of some pubs in and around the Nailsworth area in Early August. A work colleague of mine who happens to be a big Real Ale fan, lives in the area and we would like to meet up and take a some of the great establishments in the area. I suggest taking bikes on the road down to there (for speed purposes).

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.


Bushcombe DH!

The rumours are true, we have secured a venue to build GravityAssisted tracks!

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.

Daisybank Dirt Jumps

CC-CC have been actively involved in the resurrection of the Dirt Jump site in Daisybank Fields (Leckhampton). The site is open for anyone to ride but we all need to work together on new developments there.

If you want to dig new jumps we will support you all the way, just contact us or the Cheltenham Borough Council (Wayne is very friendly) Wayne.Sedgwick@cheltenham.gov.uk

Local Bike Thefts

Many of you will remember the problems we had last year with riders being followed to their homes by thieves, then soon having their bikes pinched. Well it now appears that some riders whose bikes were targeted are being targeted again. I guess the thieves are hoping that there are replacement bikes at their properties and may be that initial security measures have been relaxed a bit.

We are advising owners of expensive MTBs to lock them indoors if at all possible. If you are either riding or driving home, be aware. Registration numbers of suspicious vehicles and descriptions of the people inside are extremely useful.

If you regularly MTB or DH on Leckhampton Hill and would like to have specific issues related to biking on the hill emailed to you, please join the Leckhampton email group. See the Contact Page for more details.  

You can report incidents to the local Police on 0845 090 1234.
