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

Bushcombe Wednesdays!

Starting this Wednesday 6pm (21st April) there will be dig/ ride evenings. The initial aim will be to work on the new track with some riding. As we progress with the track there will be more riding and even some timed sessions later in the summer.

A few of us went  up at the weekend to try out some of the sections, considering it is still in early development it was very fun. The track was a lot faster than expected and provided a good challenge for a range of abilities.

Currently there is still a lot of hawthorn that needs trimming so pruning equipment and rakes will be very useful. A few corners need cutting in as well so mattocks and hoes are also essential equipment.

I hope that we can make this a regular evening so we can keep progressing the trails at Bushcombe. Remember if you have an idea we have the land!
