    We were meant to be riding in Scotland this weekend, but we had to cancel at the last minute (hence I am sat at my desk instead of MTBing :( ) :?

    A quick blat around the forest on Sunday afternoon is the best I can hope for I think!

    I'm riding from my house in stoke to stourport which is about 9 miles south of wolverhampton on saturday, staying over & drinking & merry making and then cycling back on sunday. It's about 45 miles so 90 round trip, I'll spend most of sat morning scanning the OS maps for possible bridleways, quiet roads and canals I can traverse to stay off the main roads.
    um .. . . . .

    To work and back, Saturday AND Sunday :(
  • I will hopefully be able to get a ride in this weekend, but I have a slight feeling it will only be on the road bike due to time.

    Out in the mountains though, so should be cool.

    I've decided that the best way to improve my results in the innerleithen enduro races, is to cheat. So tomorrow I'm heading down with the big bike and the video camera and hopefully Elliot'll have some spaces in the uplift bus and I can spend all day bussing and riding up and down and gain a gigantic unfair advantage :lol:

    Course, I will still get decimated by all the better riders. Which now I think of it, is practically everyone else. Being in the same age class as Crawford Carrick-Anderson seems a bit unfair :lol:

    Then on sunday perhaps a gentle XC spin in the hills behind my house.

    Just had a week in The Netherlands for a wedding, eating & drinking way too much

    Currently waiting in the bar at Stansted airport for my flight back to the Alps

    Found a great DH run / evil climb before I left so will do a few circuits of that Sat & Sun I reckon

    Bit of snow around too so should be a blast! :D

    I have never heard of that guy, but the first part of my last name is Crawford, so I like his name!
  • South lakes for me on Sunday. Garburn pass, gatesgarth pass, nan bield pass then ack over garburn. Big day out with (hopefully) big views too.

    Llandegla saturday, Sunday i'll break out the road bike and head round alderly edge and on to the peaks.
    Hoping the weather stays good!

    OT but, he's a DH legend from the turn of the century. It's funny racing at Innerleithen because of all the faces that turn up- frinstance til recently, if you were racing in Juniors you'd have Ruaridh Cunningham to beat, in his world champion colours, but now he's in seniors and so the others have a chance, oh no wait, here's Lewis Buchanan. But hey, at least he's only the 4th best junior in the world. I'm old so I should be up against other fat weekend warriors with all the gear no idea, oh no, there's people who were winning championships before most of this forum were born :lol:

    But it's a good crack. And no amount of cheaty practice will stop my censored from getting whipped, again. :lol:

    I am not riding at all this weekend for the 5th weekend in a row :(

    Can't wait to get back on the bike. Might head into town tomorrow for an urban downhill session.
  • Well then, no matter what you do Northwind, make sure you end with a smilee! At least if you know you won't come first, then you just focus on having a good time :)
  • NorthwindNorthwind Posts: 14,675
    This is the plan. And hey, who knows, he might break a leg or something, then it'll be quite close.

    My first DH race tomorrow! The lovely Misses is coming with a camera to take some snaps of me in the bottom quartile of the rankings (I suspect).

    Drumlanrig for me tomorrow, not been there with the 29er so looking forward to it. Should be like a pig in you know what (or mud!).

    RC is in elite
    Buchanan is in juniors
    But neither of them race enduros, dh only
    CCA races vets category ...

    Don't let any of these facts get in the way of a good internet story tho :shock: :D
