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

Cirencester Duathlon Results

Four CCCC riders and some of their partners enjoyed a different kind of XC racing at the Bathurst Estate near Cirencester on Valentines Day. On a cold but sunny morning we lined up for a 2 mile run, 10 mile mountain bike and then another 2 mile run - all around a muddy but not very technical course.

Ewen Macgregor and Liz Catchpole, racing as 'Ginger and Nuts' were second relay team home, in 95th overall. Other individual Cheltenham riders put in some solid placings in the mid field - David Koryczan (118th), Mike Saunders (78th), and Mark Smith (98th). Mark achieved his target time despite having twice dropped his pump on the bike lap and having to double back and fetch it! It was also great to see Rob Brown who came along to provide moral support to 'Team CCCC'.

A highlight of the race for me was when, on the first run, ten fully-grown deer suddenly ran across the track right in front of us - quite a surprise!

All in all it was a very enjoyable morning, and for those who like a bit of muddy running along with their muddy cycling I recommend it highly.
