Where did you ride today?

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

Cannock chase Follow the Dog today, decided I wanted to break 50 mins before I set of and I managed it doing 48:50 :D also the first ride in my new Nukeproof knee pads, awesomely comfy even though they're made for downhill.

A wee bimble round glentress red today, lovely... Still having some trouble shaking down the new bike so GT a better option than innerleithen offpiste stuff which is where I took it for its first ever ride :oops:

Went down to Newcastleton today for the first time... Nice day out, not amazing tbh but a good time was had. Shame the northshore stuff's all gone though :(

So that's 6 of 7 stanes ticked off. Guess that means I need to do Glentrool some time :|

Impulse ride at glentress today. Blimmin freezing! Nice though. I love riding at this time of year, except when it's raining anyway.

Amazing ride today. New loop with a mate who's a guide/instructor. There is no better way to improve than trying to keep up with someone that's better than you...especially when you're riding a HT and he's on a proper AM bike set up for these mountains.

Great route.

Rode a bit of Gisburn last Sunday, mainly the half mile of singletrack we've been building for the 18 months after we finally linked it up.
It's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

I've bought a new bike....ouch - result

Mostly around Newburn park (Tyneside) in circles trying to get the hang of having my feet clipped into eggbeaters! Started to get some strange looks from people, so I rode up to close house golf course very slowly while practicing unclipping.

All went well until I needed to unclip in a hurry , then for some reason your mind goes blank and you panic while falling sideways.

Not as nice as some peoples riding today though!

Regards

Carl

All the trains to Cannock from Birmingham were cancelled and only found out thanks to a conductor who told me to jump back on the 1st train as no more are coming! Ended up going to Sutton Park...but of a disappointment as it was a nice day. I'll try again tomorrow! :x

Just been out for 30k or so round Herts, it's muddy as fark, actually makes me miss Cannock a bit but it was good fun so I shouldn't complain. Especially when I got to Broxbourne and managed to go an hour without seeing anybody else, you don't often get that at Cannock :lol:

Up in the lake district, namely seathwaite, Dunnerdale and Walna Scar. Set off before sunrise and got into the hills to witness the sunrise. Simply stunning.
