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

Introducing Megalomania

The word megalomania is derived from the Greek words "μεγαλο": megalo-, meaning large or great, and "μανία": mania, meaning madness, frenzy. It is also an excellent Black Sabbath song (see at the bottom) This is a suitable name for the new track at Bushcombe which is a speed frenzy and large open corners.

The track which was cleared during last dig day by 6 people in one session is running sweet. The test rides starting in frozen conditions and ended up a mud-fest as everything thawed. Rather than writing lots about it just have a look at the photos  and come along to the next dig/ ride day to see and try it. Click on any image to start the sideshow, don't forget to start the Sabbath first.
