Stile cop Tuesday evening 10th July

Postby DodgeT » Sun Jun 24, 2012 16:45 pm

All being well, will be working closer to home on the tues so able to get to Stile cop for approx 6pm, plenty of time for a bit of midweek DH practise :D

I'm a relative beginner to DH, so will be sessioning the top half of the red run until I get confident enough to venture onto some of the bigger stuff.

Anyone else coming along??

I could be up for this - only been to Stile Cop once, for a Jumps & Drops course where we spent most of our time on the Red Run.
I'll be working in our Congleton office that day, so should be able to get there by 6pm - meet by the bike stands at the top of the red run?

Hopefully yes from me, if I pass my exams it's a definite. If I fail I have to rearrange my placement to make room for resits so I doubt I'll be around, I'll know for sure next week... but most likely yes.

I'll mainly be trying not to nose dive off the drops, need to go faster and not brake :)

Somebody perhaps should bring a camera, could be a good earner :grin:

We all still on for this?

The weather doesn't look too good:

But I'll be there - just need the rain to hold-off tonight so that I can give the Snot-green beast a wash and lube. Oh and also to take the Wetscream off the front, won't be needing that at Cannock!!

Still planning on it. Was looking at bbc site too, has it down for heavy rain just as we're there..... As long as it aint stupid / thunderstorms etc (which is planned for where I am on wednesday), i'll be there :)

Wetscreams, sx trail... guess you've done this before?

Oh no, just a classic example of "All the gear but no idea" :D

Not ridden the Wetscream properly yet, put it on for a dig & ride day up at Macclesfield Forest DH but all we did was dig!! It was raining too much for me to ride, even with the massive spikey thing that is a wetscream.

Aaahh, were you involved in the creation of that stupidly big drop in right at the very top?? Saw it on saturday, it's big :)

No, we were digging down at the bottom of the track a week ago on Saturday. Sorted out a lot of drainage, put some new berms in and built up the bottom doubles.

That drop-off at the top is mental isn't it - no way I'd do that. Another issue is when I last looked it didn't go anywhere :?

Did you pass by when you were doing your 3-shires route?

I'll still be heading up there, it's only a bit of water, hopefully the forecast will be wrong too, initally they were forecasting rain around here late this morning and early afternoon too and it's not materialised :roll:

Weathers looking better already :)

Yeah proutster, we did the macc forest loop after we'd done 3 shires, was a good day.

Car is all packed. Change of work plans so I'll be coming down from north manchester, so hopefully there before 6, assuming the m6 is kind to me. If I don't see you at the car park, will see you both at the trails.

Great fun tonight, good to meet you Rich, Rog & Mike :D

Rich, it looks like we did 7 runs on the Red + the one on the Ridge Line - Strava

Hope you're not injured Rich - sorry I steamed on through and didn't check you were OK, I didn't know you'd gone down :oops:

Also hope your mate's OK, Rog.

We'll have to do it again, perhaps I'll be brave enough to try the Black the next time....

Rog - just sent a PM with The Bike School's details.
