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.


Cheers Mark, nice to meet you all, hope your mates alright Rog.

8 runs then, that's alright, they were definitiely getting better towards the end too. Don't worry about it, I'm fine really, bit sore this morning but like I said yesterday the pads did their jobs mostly. Forgotten how much it tires you out though, I was kackered last night.

Definitely need to do it again.

As said, was a good night, good to put some faces to names and meet you both too :)
I reckon he'll be a bit sore today, but he'll be alright :mrgreen: What did you do then Rich?
Cheers for the go on the big'un Mark :wink:
Got the link ta, will hopefully get on one of them, perhaps have to try for the sat one as sat's are easier for me.
Weather turned out fine in the end, unlike today.....

Give us a shout when your going again guys !

Off to shop for some pyjamas ....

I managed to land one of those drops in the more sandy crap at the edge of the trail... ended in the bike wanting to stop and me trying to force it forwards before finally getting thrown off :lol: Wasn't a massively bad crash but I like to think it would have looked impressive.

Landed on my elbow and back mostly so the padding helped there but I bumped my hip too which is being nice and sore this morning :roll:

More of a comedy bucking bronco type of affair was it? :)

My favourite type. I did similar on a big drop on my local playground.. got down the drop, then the forks decided to act like a space hopper and threw me off about 5yds on :) This was on my canal path / hack bike with amazing suntour bouncy bits at the front :lol: (bad workman and tools etc...)

Hi guys I've never been to Stile Cop before and was wondering how the DH tracks run in the wet? I might be heading that way this weekend and obviously it's rubbish weather right now! Thanks.

Can only vouch for the red run, but that was fine on tuesday. Top half is hardpack/gravel so doesn't get affected by the rain. Bottom half had a couple of puddles. Saying that, didn't go right to the bottom.

The bike's all sorted now, so I'll definitely be there on Tuesday evening - should get there at about 6-6:15pm.

Might be brave enough to try the black run or the new line this time......

Cool, well as long as I can get my car back to being a turbo diesel as opposed to just a diesel by then, I'll be there too.

Take it the chainring bolts were right?

Oh dear, let's hope you get it sorted and that it's not too expensive.

Let me know in the morning, if you're not going then I'll go up to the Macc Forest DH tracks instead.
