On Saturday myself, Brett and Scott headed out to Pooley Bridge to do a variation of the Askham loop. We parked up near Roehead at the end of the small road and headed straight through the big gate and up the bridleway, we then took a right turn off and followed the same bridleway down… Read more »

Nukeproof Mega Long term review


8 months ago I bought and built up my own Nukeproof Mega so I thought I would write up a few words to share my experiences with it over this time. The Mega is a 150mm travel bike that can be paired up with a 150mm to 170mm travel fork up front and is billed… Read more »

Filming fun session at Whinlatter


A spontaneous trip out, ride, film, edit and upload in a day. Great fun, I can highly recommend it. The “I hate people” bit comes from the end of this vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYVe0m_I114 from a previous holiday of ours, and it makes us chuckle everytime!

Stainburn with sunburn


After a night at the wakeboarding campsite, we put Ricks bike together and headed up to Stainburn. A mountain bike trail found near Harrogate with a red and a black loop. The only issue I have with Stainburn is that the loops are very short in comparrison to a lot of trail, but they are… Read more »

Dalbeattie, Full Sus, Wide Bars


Dalbeattie red route was never one of my favourite stanes, just because there was no real, mind blowing descents. However this trip has changed my mind slightly, thanks to Mad Mike and Grave Danger, two names that I probably shouldn’t have tried to keep up with! My lovely Marzocchi 55 ATA (2008)s were still back… Read more »

Cwmcarn Day 03 (Wet Welsh Weekend)


A good nights sleep and some bacon, some lovely sunshine and the welsh hills… a bit of a better start than the day before! Packing up the tent, getting 10 bikes out of 2 cars, repacking the cars with everything else and then heading down to the start of the Twrch Trail, all done quickly… Read more »

Cwmcarn Day 02 (south wales)


10 in the tent and the little one said…”are you awake?” Well, it wasn’t quite a water bed we were on but the ground definitely squelched under our floor/bed! I didn’t get much sleep and neither did a couple of others, thanks to the snorers, rain, wind, waterfalls near by and the rivers forming through… Read more »

Cwmcarn Day 01 (welsh trails)


For some strange reason, these last few months have made me start to question my commitment to mountain biking, snowboarding, jackrabbitt, etc. I just seem to have lost the passion that I once had for the sport and surrounding culture, no apparent reason, other than maybe feeling slightly left behind after the whole collar bone… Read more »
