Haha I let him win :wink:

Out for another ride tomorrow morning. Can’t decide between hardtail or full-suspension. Hardtail is always more of a full body workout as you can’t sit down and ride through and up the same stuff you can on a squishy bike. Hmmm.

Hardtail


#485

That’s decided then!


#486

Splendid with added pics of course :+1:


#487

Will try and remember to get a shot of the bike before we start (when you can actually see it, instead of mud)


#488

I used to do this off road every weekend. Kept me fit.


#489

Before and after please


#490

Here’s the after picture. The before pics for some reason didn’t work… user error no doubt. Trails were much drier this week, so not a lot of mud gathered :+1:

Stopped for a harbour side coffee on the way home :sunny:


#491

That looks a bit too clean Gareth - I think you bypassed the trail and went straight to the cake shop. :grinning:

Nice bike btw :+1:


#492

What can I say? I ride so hard that the mud doesn’t have time to stick… :coffee::cake:


#493

Dangerous place :wink:

I came off my mountain bike and broke my pelvis going down dark hill to Kingston Gate last year:roll_eyes:

This meme has been around too long to be funny. Except sometimes.


#495

'Twas once true for me that. Nowadays I’ve settled down with my four “girlfriends”…


#496

Thought this was a good idea

I suppose it was coming after my miraculous near miss before Christmas so today my luck finally ran out and I was knocked down by a car.

Luckily there’s no lasting damage to me or the bike, although the driver went home to change his kecks I think, but a timely reminder nonetheless of just how fucking vulnerable you are on a bike.
