Sunday 23rd January was the Bucks MTB Monthly Club ride to the Forest of Dean or FoD if you’re feeling lazy (I’ll be calling it  FoD from now on). After a bit of a battle for some to find parking spaces due to FoD being extra busy with the 661 Down Hill race (more on that later), we all met at the obligatory cafe to meet up and say Hi, warm ourselves up with Tea and Bacon sarnies. The turnout was good with the usual regulars, some new faces, and I am really happy to say a good number of female riders (almost half the group!) with riders varying from beginners to seasoned XC riders.

A total of four riders joined BucksMTB staff members Chris and I for the first of BucksMTB's winter night rides. Armed with what seemed to be every light they could find (or borrow) and in some cases attached in true 'Blue Peter' style using Zip ties and tape we headed out into the trails around Coombe hill.

My partners’ family visit this cottage in Llangenny a couple of times a year for a bit of a get together, it’s a pretty little farm cottage built way-back-when (before central heating was invented!) on the side of The Sugar Loaf just up from the little market town of Crickhowell. We normally go for a few walks when we’re there as none of her family have any interest in mountain biking but I’d managed to get a weekend there booked just for me, and whoever else wanted to come...so it was decided to have an informal club venture to the Brecons for a day of riding!
