Where did you ride today?

Got a general MTB question that doesn't fit anywhere else? Here's the place.

Rode revolution bike park saturday in the p1$$ wet which was amusing. Lots of good crashing. Went to Forest of Dean yesterday. I didn't realise there was a race on and it was like a downhill fashion parade. Lost count of the number of people walking around with bog seats around their necks. Numptys.

Had an uplift day at the brand new Blaenau Ffestiniog DH tracks - and pretty awesome they are too!

30km on my local route, first ride on my new bike though, so really, really enjoyed it.

mucked about on the shredder and downhill track at Ae forest this morning. Finally worked up the courage to ride the road gap on the shredder as well.

Just heading home to grab the bike for a quick spin. Considering bit of filming on the snowshoe trails or just riding to get work related frustrations out of head. Probably the later. In which case up Snake pit to the mountain summit then down something else back to village.

[peers out window]Hmm, chance of thunder, maybe I wont go to summit.

Or I wont go out at all - winds just got up to 80mph, lashing rain, lightning, thunder etc. Screw that, beer.

I rode 40.5km on road to work, on knobbly tyres on my hardtail, then the same back. It's the longest I've ridden since I picked up a bike again 4 years ago, and probably the longest for about 20 years, since I was 15 and used to think nothing of just riding for an entire day.

I feel terrible, but great in almost equal measures.

Good effort, keep it up.
Today's riding was also to/from work for me. only 10 miles each way today, trying to save some energy for the weekend.
And I got a puncture on the way home. gutted.

If work was 10 miles away I'd happily ride it every day. Riding to work this morning was OK, as it is generally downhill. Riding home took 40 minutes longer (2:10 there, 2:50 home), as there are loads of just gradual but sapping climbs. I blew up with about 6 or 7km to go and had to go for Mars, a tuna sandwich and Lucozade from a petrol station. Ten minute stop and I was OK for the rest of the way.

I'll do it again, but I need 3 consecutive days in the office so I can leave laptop and clothes/towel there.

Really? I never thought they were that bad. (some of the odd trails in the woods are a mite hairball but the actual DH and a few of the others off to the right were OK.

I did a short spin in the local park today - hour and half or so in 32 degrees - my bike smeared ina layer of brown powder. Then rode for a couple of hours in the bike park using the lift - had some fun.

Whinlatter for me today, didn't have much time (had to get back to look after my kids) so just did a quickish lap of the red north route. Great fun and it's finally drying out.

Yesterday I did the beast of Brenin and mucked about at the start of the blue at Coed Y Brenin, awesome day and the weather was good.
This morning we went and did the Marin trail in the rain, It was ok and the last bit left us wanting more so just done a lap around Llandegla.

Tired now.
