...and I was struggling to work out how.
Nicked from work car park and headed for fields, I followed tracks across them, I was sprinting and I'm no slouch for a big lad!
I was a few mins behind them, loads of folk telling me... Couldn't see how they'd pushed it up the hills, doubt they started...
I'm often out on the trails around Dorking and the surrounding areas...
happy to ride with anyone really... Just stated the big bike thing as I ride an Africa Twin and am happy to lead a ride for bigger bikes if anyone fancies it...?

Some tough climbs but rewarded with some fantastic downhills that are only safe done at speed
Some of my favourite downhills are on this ride

Got a few of the Highlanders together for a run up the Pass of the Cattle today. There was a plan to try and meet up with the Lowland contingent, who had decided to stage a minor, two pronged invasion, with Outrunner taking the Low road to Fort Bill, whilst Boris & Ben took the High road to...
Went back home for the Easter break and while driving around in my mother's Renault Clio with the steering wheel pressing hard on my six-rolls.....I realized that it would be wondreful to ride the same roads on a bike like I used to do 30 years ago....
It's only an idea at the moment but would...
So after last sunday's shocking ride out, I was all set for another try today .
So Friday I got new front and rear tyres on , ready for today but still with only 3 miles on them so *must* be careful ..
I decided to try out the ortlieb panniers , I got off ebay couple of months back.
Phone call from Lowflyer – Friday evening - “I need to get some fresh air into my lungs – fancy a ride out on Sunday”
“OK” says I.
A.N.Other phone call from Lowflyer – 24hrs later –“ Can’t go, got to sort out youngest sons car – BUMMOCKS”. :(
““Never Mind” says I. ;)
So I decided...
I have arranged a weekend camping meet at the Blue Hills Touring Park in Trevellas, Cornwall. This is one of the best sites I have ever stayed at and is totally biker friendly, only 2 miles from Perranporth and has some of the best riding roads anywhere. If we have enough interest we may be able...
I am going back to Blue Hills for a long weekend from the 17th to 25th June, this is a great site with plenty of great local roads to ride,and only 2 miles from some of Cornwall's best beaches the facilities on the site are second to none. Just call gary or Loo to confirm space before leaving...
What I did yesterday...

Went up North and center of the country, to my folks hometown (Cardigos, Mação) for some offroad riding on the AT.
Here's a few pics

Went down to Rhayader Sat evening (b+b). Set out from crossgates cafe sunday am.
Good to see the big beemers doing the bussiness.
We split into 2...
Going to have a nose around the head of the valleys and Black Mountains next Saturday. This is a tarmac ride (no mud, maybe a bit of gravel here and there but your all tough adventurers!) and will explore some of the smaller lanes around the hills. Nice easy pace. Good one for 2 up if your...
Lowflyer & I decided to go for a little ride today . . .
Started off well in a little sand pit with Lowflyer getting some riding tips from some locals . .
He eventually gets it all crossed up . . .
And I . . . . . don’t!
Something tells me his head hurts :-)...

Knocknashal, Ballindalloch. This track forms part of the Speyside Way from Ballindalloch towards Glen Livet
Then across the River Spey onto Pauls Hill. Couldn't get onto the turbine road due to maintenance staff being around. I can only...
