It’s been nearly a week since I’ve had a chance to update. Last weeks Thursday night ride didn’t happen, my t’internet connection has been down and there’s been a fair bit else going on, the highlight of which was a trip north of the border that started on Saturday night.
Ben and I loaded up our bikes and gear and headed up to the Glentress Hotel near Peebles and made it in time for a reasonable session at the resident’s bar. The next day after negotiating the ice rink that had formed on the tarmac, it was time to ride up to the Hub in the Forest, allowing Ben to suss out the bike shop and then it was time to hit the black run.
Lots of climbing, great singletrack, mud, ice and lots of snow. I haven’t been snow biking in ages, but when there’s several feet of it in places, that’s a whole new world of riding. Photos are up here.
