40 Million Moles?

Posted by DaveC | June 14, 2010 | 3 comments so far

I was somewhat alarmed, and to be fair not fully awake, to hear a news story this morning that estimates the Mole population of the UK at 40 million!

If this is the case, bearing in mind the most Moles we’ve had out on a Sunday is 15, I’d just like to reassure the residents of the Surrey Hills that we won’t all be riding at once!


About the author

Dave's been riding seriously since about 1997 and is one of the founding Molefathers — along with Matt and Mark — that came up with the idea of a MTB website for Mole Valley riders.

He's had several different bikes but it's now mainly 29ers in Dave's stable, apart from an Orange 5.

Current Bikes: Orange 5, Salsa Spearfish and Kona Big Unit

    You’ve been dreaming again, haven’t you?

    What cheese do they put in that cake?

    Apparently the moles population is expanding greatly

    For those of you with seven year old boys like me, a Moles take over is direct from the superb Johnny Test

    As those of us of more mature years know; there is only one way to get rid of a mole (apart from sitting him on a Spider 29er, sorry Matt)
