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
