Helvellyn Weekend – 2nd Aug 2013 to 4th Aug 2013

This trip was to replace our usual annual trip to Coed Y Brenin, and it was the first time our partners were coming along, rather than it being just a blokes biking weekend.  24 people were supposed to be going but only 21 of us actually went, and not all would be biking. I’d choose… Read more »

Howden/Derwent Reservoir bike ride – 7th April 2013

Only a gentle ride around lower path of Howden and Derwent Resevoirs, and no where near as difficult as the last ride at Ladybower (generic term as more people know it as this) but it’s good to get some pedal time in regardless. Before setting off, a quick sausage cob and hot chocolate was needed, and were lucky… Read more »

Sherwood Pines – Red Route – 14th Oct 2012

So far this year the bike hasn’t seen loads of excursions worth writing about, and due to an elbow injury I’ve only climbed once since March, so blogs have been few and far between, although I’ve kept myself busy doing plenty of walking or visiting places with Emma. Emma’s been training for her first half… Read more »

Product Review – Pure-Racing KS i7 Dropper Post

I’ve been looking out for one of these for ages now, and by chance during a weekend riding in Wales I find one in the bike shop (www.oneplanetadventure.com) at Llandegla. Because the size is 27.2mm they are like rocking horse shit, so finding one by chance made a bloody good day. Out the box it feels… Read more »
