Nant yr Arian MTB Ride

As my Cyclo-cross race this weekend was on Saturday, I was able to join a few friends on a mountain-bike ride at Nant yr Arian on Sunday. It had been years since I’d seen a couple of these people, and months since I’d seen the others so it was a nice little reunion of old biking...

Mountain Biking in the Rain

What with autumn well and truly here, riding my bike on the roads isn’t quite as much fun as it is in the summer – I don’t mind the cold and rain, it’s just not so safe in the dark with cars and lorries sharing the road too. On top of that I’m supposed to be doing...

MTBing Pendam

With Anna working on Saturday, Morgan and I went out for a nice little mountain bike ride together. It’s about time Morgan went out on his bike as he’s barely been on it since getting it last October. That’s partly our fault for not offering to take him out more often, partly his fault for...

Riding on Knobblies for the Sake of it

It’s been a while but I finally got out on my mountain bike last night. About time too really with the Coed y Brenin Enduro just over a week away. It was my first night ride for years too, but I charged my battery, put my light on my helmet, checked my bike – the...

Blueberry picking, Mountain Biking and Geocaching at Nant yr Arian

The school holidays seem to be flying by and the list of things Morgan and I wanted to do during them has barely been touched. We’ve been busy with plenty of other things but thanks to all of this, we haven’t even started on the days of geocaching, mountain biking, surfing, kayaking, gardening, painting and...

MTBing with Friends

We had a good day yesterday and once again a busy one, just the way I like it. My day started at 4am when I got up and started some early morning baking and cleaning. Once Morgan was up and the baking was all under control I stopped for some breakfast and watched Gardeners World...

MTBing at Nant yr Arian

Its been a while since I’ve been properly Mountain Biking – So long in fact that when I got my bike out yesterday it still had the race number on it from a race I did back in August – The CRC MTB Marathon in Abergavenny. It was therefore nice to get out for a little spin...

Our plan was to get there mid afternoon, have a mountain bike ride / walk...

Back on the Bike

It’s been ages since I’ve been out on my mountain bike – 3 months to be precise as the last time I was out was the Coed y Brenin Enduro back at the beginning of October. I finally got back out there today though with a quick spin around the Summit Trail and Hippity Hop...
