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

Pump and roll - Updated with pics

Thanks again to everyone who turned up to dig today at Bushcombe.

We started by walking down the track to check for fallen branches, then decided to work on the bottom section to improve the flow and to bring it up to the same standard as the top.

One group were adding a small catch berm to the off camber left after the small root drop. The other were building up the last left hand berm to stop Alex face planting there. They also added a couple of rollers to the final straight.

The plan for the next few weeks is to continue to work on the lower section as well as extend the DH down the hill. The climb is progressing well with a few riders attempting it, looks like we may need a few small changes but it will not be long before we have Bushcombe loops!

We hope to see many of you again on the 5th February for the next official dig day. Keep your eyes on the Facebook page for the latest details.
