  • A Great Sunday ride

    The weather was ideal for the ride today & a good number turned up, with a few newcomers joining in. The trails were running sweet & we hit the singletrack on Ranmore & Mickleham predominantly. Taking in Reformation, Rip van Winkle, Pink socks, Batrun & many more I can't remember. Got a nice little video of some of the guys hitting the last jump on Reformation. The best bit though was stopping off at Grant's for Pizza from his pizza oven. doesn't get any better, thanks Grant.& …

We kept to Leith Hill but managed to get in some skills practice with Dave building on what he learnt on the Saturday freeride practice. Jo was also improving her jumping skills & just needs to believe in herself more. The little clip below is of 'Your head's on fire' with Dave mastering it …

  • Old skool Sunday ride

    Surpisingly, a reasonable number of riders tuned up for the Sunday ride, even though the weather wasn't at it's best! We hit Leith Hill, taking in 'Touch Sensitive', 'Wild wood,' then down to Friday Street & 'Soul mining'.  Climbed up Holmbury hill & did the all weather 'Parklife' followed by 'Telegraph Road' then stopping off for cheesy chips & tea at the excellent Royal Oak pub. We then carried on back up Leith hill & onto Redlands woods & 'Psychedelic warlord' …
