Ride report – 05/10/14 – Dry trails are still out there

How much longer can it continue? Well there is mud out there now but not as much as there could be, next week looks like it’s the end though…

Elliott on Wonderland

Ride report: Sunday 28 September – bit of an epic

Phew, that was a big one! 32 miles for a Sunday ride was a pretty decent effort, and had a few of us flagging by the end of the ride. I said on the forum Saturday night I thought it was a tad ambitious, but nothing ventured, nothing gained eh?!

Trouble In Paradise

Ride report: Sunday 21 September- Western Front

A stack on Trouble in Paradise, a stack on No Name and a stack on Rip van Winkle, but no injuries! Read the rest…

Matt gets air on Yoghurt Pots

Ride report: Sunday 14 September – Dusty gnarr

Ride report – Sunday 31 August – the last day of summer?

A storm was predicted for the Bank Holiday and rain duly arrived on Monday. Thank goodness we were out on Sunday! Read the rest…

Goody Goody yum yum!

Ride report: Sunday 17 August – North Downs

North Downs. Doesn’t sound like much really, does it? Yet somehow today we managed to squeeze in a variety of freshly uncovered trails, about 28 miles and 2800 feet of climbing (and, obviously, descending!). All in all quite a lot packed into a ride which never took us further than Shere then.

13th of August – remebering how to night ride

Blimey two Moles rides in a week – it’s been a while! After the blast of last Sundays mudfest I thought that a follow up Wednesday night ride would be a good alternative so I dusted off the MTB lights, charged the batteries, dragged the newly returned from loan Pronghorn HT from the garage and posted up a ride on … Read the rest…

10th of August Moles Ride. Tropical cycling?

After a flurry of MTFU e-mails a small select group of Moles met up at Bocketts car park. MTFU? Well the headlines of storms caused by the tail end of Hurricane/Tropical storm/Atlantic depression/heavy clouds (take your pick depending on your media outlet) Bertha meant the lure of the duvet was strong for many moles. They missed a great ride.

A dry(ish) week on Ranmore

I was lucky to get three great evening rides in this week, on three different bikes. Although we had a fair bit of rain on Monday night, the trails were still running very nicely, and on the last ride (Thu evening) I was eating dust.

QECP Trail Collective Enduro – 27 July 2014

How do the guys at QECP do it? I’m talking about the hotline to the weather gods that ensured we had a baking hot race on Sunday Read the rest…

Moles in the woods

Ride report: Sunday 13 July – Pure XC

As the week has moved on, bringing with it baking sunshine and hot, dusty trails, it seems unlikely that last Sunday morning I was looking out the window wondering if I might have to invoke the Rain Clause. In the end, I’m very glad I didn’t. Read the rest…
