  • Thanks mate

    Stiff thighs and aching shoulders / between my shoulder blades mainly, but all in all not too bad
    ​​​​​​
    surprisingly "normal" on the Monday too !

    Glad we didn't go for the 100 miler as that would have been a different story, maybe next year

          • I'm running low on high5 could do with a restock!

            Todays ride was the grottiest September weather in memory, mizzle to torrential, grey, headwinds, sub 10*c, winter kit on, then boil in bag but cold at the same time, kept extending the ride at various points, even though just wanted to head home and get the burner on!

            Came across a Santa Cruz demo day as well in the lakes, really unexpected!

                All the bikes were booked out, fancied a go on a Tallboy III or hightower Although it was probably a good thing I didn't have a go for the sake of the credit card!

                The disgusting weather had a certain charm to it yesterday, no one about, autumn leaves starting to fall, colours beginning to change, driving rain to face with the buff and headband on, gloopy mud sections, too hot with coat on, too cold with it off, makes me look forward to proper cold winter riding! Can't wait to get out again

                • The lady that drew me the Bronwyn has started an Etsy shop and bagged myself a #1 of 10 limited edition print

                    • Autumn, looks more like gloop levels seen in the depths of winterfell!

                      Looks a decent loop with some circulars

                      I thought it was an alligator popping up in pic one, #blacklake, then realised it was probably the Spesh!

                      • Lol @ lake

                        Was a good reintroduction into Bronwyn and made me realise how much i prefer MTB

                        Also made me realise I need to ride Bronny more to get rid of some bad roadie habits !

                          • Lol, avoiding any / every imperfection in the road for starters

                            Using the road as another

                            Taking corners / drops and everything far to slow

                            Need to ride Bronwyn more often

                            Will find a decent out the door route / loop for cold early mornings and night rides through the winter ......

                            • I remember my roadie test ride, one section of tarmac i've got a Blur KOM on, which you'd class as roadie territory, was an absolute death trap! Bumps, ruts, and broken tarmac which didn't even acknowledge, became near death experiences on the roadie

                              Hooning down roads on Bronwyn, in the pitch black, with lights on what i'm guessing are quieter back lanes near the house would be a good start, then see what you find.
