Club members Dave, Kevin & Adam braved the weather and snowfall to meet up at Coed-y-Brenin on a cold day in January for some fun in the Welsh mountains. The rain, wind, sleet, hail & snow all added to the fun. The day was started by riding the red graded Dragons Back, followed by lunch back at the coed-y-brenin visitors centre. After lunch, Kevin & Adam rode the black graded Tarw trail.
Another year gone and its January, which means everyone is out riding trying to burn off those mince pies. Our Swinley Forest club member ride on Sunday 18th January had a great turn out with twelve of us hitting the trails for a lap of the blue and red trails followed by much needed tea and cake! Thanks to all those who attended the ride!
Thankfully the trails were dry(ish) and the sun was shining for take two of the Golden Ball Run³ - unfortunately we had to cancel this ride originally back in June due to the horrendous trail conditions and bad weather, so it was nice to have some luck on our side for this one.
We were absolutely blessed with a stunning autumn day in the Chiltern Hills from beginning to end, and as always we started with a slog up from Watlington car park up to the Ridgeway to the first climb to Cockpole Green. After crossing the road we hit the first decent which is quite rough to begin with but as long as you pedal you can keep the speed going till the end and have really good fun.
Our first members only ride of the year started on a cold but brilliantly sunny morning up at Cannock Chase nr Birmingham. We had a good turnout with a large proportion of the club making the journey North to stretch their legs and start the new year with a ride!
