Back on the bike after a couple of months hiding away from the cold. Did Llandegla this weekend, what a day! The climbs on that red route nearly killed me.8 minutes ago

Had a brilliant time at the Get Your Beard On Santa Ride at Gisburn Forest on the 7th . About 100 people, in fancy dress, turned up to do a lap of the 8! With spot prizes and a quiz on the way round which made it more than the usual ride it was quite epic to see so many bikes take off after each other. The Forest Den cafe opened late so that we could partake of Christmas Dinner Barms, mince pies and coffee after the ride (and Nick provided a sustaining cup of hot mulled wine at the top of Cardiac Hill for those who dared to get to it's summit half way round). Really nice community vibe, set up by Dan and Kev, we're hoping it'll become an annual event.
However, next year I'm hoping I won't be winning the spot prize of best crash (yup, did a Superman on Swoopy, face plant on rocks and have two lovely bruises on the front of my thighs from the handlebars and whiplash, ugh) Good advertisement for wearing the proper protection though as it could have been much worse without my pads on.
Got a few personal bests along the way so, all in all, great way to spend a birthday

Family get together sat and off to see xmas lights Sunday afternoon so just a simple and short ride squeezed in this weekend. Went to Lordship Loop to practice me pumping (my calf muscle has a recovering tear in it at mo so had to take it easy anyhows). Track was busy with local kids and was a fun sneaky session.
Anyone else get out?

After the Storm
The majority of walking trails and cycling trails including the cycle
skills loop are still currently CLOSED. This is largely a precautionary
measure to give Ranger staff time to get out and check the whole network
but the trails that have been checked (with the exception of the Duke's
Trail and the Borderline cycle trail) do have windblown trees across
Due to the amount of work involved in removing trees from both the road
network and the walking/cycling trails, we are looking at the end of
next week to reopen them once they are safe.
The Duke's Trail is currently OPEN. This is a lovely multi-access trail
which starts at Kielder Castle and follows passed the children's play
area, squirrel hide and arboretum.
Also, the Borderline trail has been checked and is OPEN. This is a
picturesque 'out and back' trail which runs along the old railway line
and is ideal for families.
We'll be in contact as soon as they have been re-opened. Any queries
please contact staff at Kielder Castle Information Centre on 01434
