Muddymoles mountain biking in the Surrey Hills and Mole Valley

Why I haven’t been mountain biking lately

Or blogging about it either.

Ahh, the inevitable barren spell of the amateur blogger!

There’s been an interuption to normal service this past couple of weeks over Easter due to two things, both of which having conspired to stop me getting out riding the local trails.

First off, I was struck down by a nasty virus which kept me out of action (and virtually bed ridden) for five days. It wasn’t ‘flu exactly, in that I could have forced myself to move if there was a spare £50 note going begging, but it was pretty bad. So basically no mountain biking for a week.

Second, I’ve just moved house and while it hasn’t completely stopped me riding (Mark and I got out for a sprightly jaunt around the Surrey Hills on Easter Saturday), I haven’t been able to blog much due to all the effort with moving in, setting up home and the not inconsiderable matter of a lack of internet access.

So there’s my excuses.

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.
