Winter Rides

The hardcore amongst us were out this morning. I was not. There’s a big difference between doing breakfast rides in summer compared to this time of year. The least of it is that I’d have another bike to clean or have dirty in the kitchen. The bigger issue is to do with getting up at 5 in the morning to go out and ride in the cold wet and dark south of Manchester.

There isn’t a winter Enduro race in Thetford this year, which is a shame because it’s a popular season starter. Fortunately local rider Slowjo has taken on responsibility for organising a bit of a ride in the woods anyway. There are details here and the provisional date is 9th May.

Barrie Clarke is a legend within the British mountain bike scene, probably best known for his over ten years service with the Raleigh team and numerous national championship titles. This is his website.

This news article brought a smile to my face. It’s good to see a small victory against the big companies. The current law on copyright is just not going to work.

Drink driving is just stupid. Stupid, like driving without wearing a seatbelt or whilst using a mobile phone. This is an example of the consequences, at least there was only damage to property, there could have been loss of life. What is it about Range Rover drivers?
