Dandy

Dandy

Having been mountain biking since 1996, you might have expected Dandy to have learnt to ride a bike by now. Several broken bones in the last few years prove the maxim that you can't teach an old dog new tricks.

In between hospital visits, Dandy rides a brace of much-blinged Pace RCs, the 'green themed' 405 and the silver & gold 506. His winter hack is the Moles' favourite, an On-One 456 hardtail, now converted to an Alfine hub He also dabbles in 'the dark arts', keeping 2 road bikes in one of his seven sheds.

Easter Monday’s Birthday Biking

It was the Young Dandini’s 21st today (is he really only 10 years younger than me???), so we had a rare outing together on the trails for myself and the Bambini Dandinis. My long-time cycling buddy Stu came with us, and we were very pleasantly surprised to see Jem come over to join us, too.

Ride Report – Wed 04 Aug – Miss Whiplash – Part 2

Following Tony down ‘Secret Singletrack’ on Sunday, I took a bit of a whipping, but at least he took the brunt of it. Tonight, completely by accident rather than design (or so I like to think), it was my turn to force a path through the rampant vegetation.

There has been much discussion on this site concerning sartorial elegance this week, and this ride also had a sartorial theme which did not really make itself known until part way through the ride.
