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

Forest Saturday

Thinking that winter was on the way a few club members booked on the Forest of Dean Uplift (www.flyupdownhill.co.uk) to get some practice in the wet conditions. Sadly winter was not to be seen and we had to ride dry dusty trails. The uplift service was excellent as usual and it was nice to ride some changes to the trails. The new jump on Corkscrew provided a few smiles and the berms at the end of Sheepskull were amazing if you were brave enough to clear the jumps and not brake into them. 

Special mentions should be made to Barnaby who completed his first ever uplift day (see its not so scary) also to Roger and Tim who missed out on the uplift but rode up to meet us at the top. 

It was also good to meet a few of the members of the Bristol Mountain Bike Club. 

The only damper on the day was my bent crank/ pedal which resulted in an early trip home and a tiny hole in Tims tyre. Sadly I do not have any photos from the day so you will have to make do with a few shots of my rear tyre, it is currently running 8 holes in the tread and 5 in the side-wall (see Tim your hole was nothing!)

New clothing now in!

We have just recieved the first batch of club colours loose fit long sleeved jerseys. These are ideal for DH, BMX or even if you want a more casual look on the trails. I hope to see a few riders racing the Mini DH in FoD wearing these!

We have XS-L in stock so feel free to contact Alex if you want to try something.

The price is subsidised by the club so you only need to pay £31
