Morgan quite enjoys his cycling at the moment, so we had an action replay on Monday of the day we had on Friday. Once again it was bilberry picking up at Pendam followed by a picnic, a mountain bike ride and then some more bilberry picking. We went off in search of blackberries as well,...

Getting Slower – Review your Training!

I went for a ride around the Pendam Trail at Nant yr Arian yesterday. I was on my hardtail as I’ve yet to get a seatpost for my newly rebuilt Commencal Meta 5. I started off at a steady pace in perfect conditions, sunny, cool and barely any wind. By the time I got to...

Night riding Nant yr Arian

With less than a week to go until the Dyfi Enduro we decided that this weeks night ride would be a little different. Rather than just doing a loop around the usual trails, Martyn suggested sessioning a few of the bits of singletrack on the Pendam Trail. Dave, Martyn, Bernd, Myles and myself met at...

I had another action packed weekend here in Wales. Now that I have a new bike, my brother Jay came to visit so that he could borrow my old bike and come out for a couple of mountain-bike rides with me. He used to be a fairly handy cyclist, racing on and off the road,...
