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
Forest of Dean Mini DH Round 3
The track was cut up and very muddy in places which made it particularly challenging, similar to round 1. Rachel suffered from a leaking front brake during her first run and had to abandon it, whilst Charlie and Roger had off track excursions.
Rachel managed to blag a bike for her run (thanks to Rich Dade for the lending of his Demo 7), and she managed to post a very respectable time giving her 4th in her category, so a great effort indeed. Her time was just eclipsed by Roger (38th masters) who was experimenting with hardtail racing – something he is still questioning but is determined to get the hang of….
Charlie put in a solid performance on his hardtail to post an excellent 11th in the Masters.
A hard day above the saddle, but still great fun all the same.
