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

Moelfre Uplift Day

After the success of Cwmcarn, the next uplift day on the 27th March at Moelfre.

For those that do not know, Moelfre is about 100miles away (so easy in a day trip), the track contains about 1 tree but is flat out and very fun. On a sunny day it is the closest you will get to riding in the alps. You can ride it on any bike, I have been on my hardtail which was only slightly slower than my 224. Uplift is on a tractor trailer and you will get somewhere between 10 and 15 runs.

These uplift days are very low key and open to all, there is no elitism as everyone is there for a good laugh. I have seen 11 year olds on the same trailer as guys who race world cups!

To get you warmed up here is a video of a race there last year...
