Foraging for Muffins

MTBing with Morgan

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...

Picnic @ Pendam

Sunday was a gorgeous day here so we headed off to the hills for a picnic. We went to Pendam where Morgan and I had a little cycle ride around Llyn Blaenmelindwr whilst Anna started picking blueberries. We then had a picnic on the shore of Llyn Pendam. It was lovely and peaceful sat there...

Last ride before the Dyfi Enduro – A reassuring Personal Best

Last night was the last MTB ride before the Dyfi Enduro for me. The idea was to meet the usual attendees of the Wednesday evening night ride at Pendam for an easy ride around the Summit Trail. I found myself there and at a loose end at 5ish, a couple of hours early so rather...

A Personal best – The Pendam Trail

The last time I did a timed circuit of the Pendam Trail at Nant yr Arian was about a month ago and it took me 41 minutes and 5 seconds. I was pretty disappointed with this as it was very slow compard to my personal best of 37:22. I’ve been feeling a bit slow on...

Not getting any faster

With the Mawddach Goldrush looming on Sunday I’m now taking it easy for the second half of this week so that I’m fresh for it. I did however have to do some bike maintenance earlier this week and whilst at it did a wiper seal service on my forks and a rear shock air can...

Wishing the weekend wouldn’t end

It’s a shame the weekend is only 2 days long, especially with the weather we’ve been having. Saturday was glorious and we had a fairly lazy day in the garden. It’s not often that you can spend all day outside in shorts and a ‘T’-shirt around here, and over 12 hours in the sun seems...

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...

Jay’s first attempt at Pendam Trail

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,...
