Muddymoles mountain biking in the Surrey Hills and Mole Valley

I feel a chump, not a chimp!

I feel like a chump
Considering I work as a web developer, I really should know better!

This is a short apology to anyone who has tried to contact us at MoleHQ for the past few months. I’ve been wondering for some time why the usually steady flow of queries asking to ride with us had dried up – now I know why.

The short answer is, our web host upgraded their email servers and in the process, dropped all the mailbox rules we had in place. So not only did the never-ending stream of spam stop, but the rule which forwarded queries to my personal mailbox stopped working. As I never directly check the Muddymoles mailbox, I had no idea this was the case.

The upshot is that I have several queries to respond to but its possible I’ve missed many more. If you have emailed us recently at and haven’t had a reply, you have my apologies. I will endeavor to reply over this coming weekend, but if you don’t hear anything, please don’t give up on us. Email us again and you should at least get a reply this time.

Lesson learned I hope!

About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.
