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

Practice makes perfect!


We all know that practice makes perfect, but how often do we make the time to actually hone our bike skills? Practising that corner that you find difficult, pushing yourself to go over a slightly larger step/ drop or simply trying a new trick.

Practising also helps with bike set-up as you can repeat a small section whilst making alterations to suspension settings or simply changing the cockpit. It is amazing how much a difference a few degrees of change in brake lever position makes.

No matter what level a rider you are there is always room for improvement. If practising sounds a bit dull then just think of it as play biking.  This play biking is what the Thursday Corrective Sessions are all about, with Lecky and Bushcombe offering plenty to play on.

If you do not already come along join us and see your bike skills improve.

See you Thursday

Bushcombe update and ride

A lot has been happening up Bushcombe since the last update. The usual Wednesday dig/ ride sessions are still on going with the work dependant on the weather. As we approach summer there will be more riding and less digging.

The track is progressing nicely, we have been taking advantage of the damp weather over the last few weeks and been digging in new berms, drops and jumps. Currently nearly half the track is ridable and has many interesting features. As the weather dries out again we will work on clearing the remaining sections. 

This weeks (20th May) Corrective Thursday will be up at Bushcombe, people will be up there from 6pm. If you arrive late a contact number will be displayed in one of the cars.

Enjoy a few bad quality photos of some of the stuff that is being built up there...
