    Don't think I'm going to make it to this, was trying to get my car fixed in time but it's not likely to happen

    jim_t Thanks mate, much appreciated. I'm going to check out camping at the visitor centre, which is about a mile from the lodge. I'll let you know when I've spoken to them.

    Great ride at my local(ish) bikepark, Chicksands yesterday. Enjoyed a coaching session with Tom Dowie in the morning, working on my jumps and drops. Following shoulder surgery it's really highlighted how much of my riding is based on strength/brute-force over smooth technique, so a bit of coaching was overdue. After a two hour session I could already tell my technique had improved, leaving me the rest of the day to continue to work on it and push it further. (I'd definitely recommend Tom and will be going back for some more coaching with him).

    Overall, a good day's riding with some of the first decent weather of the year, marred only by a five mile ride back to the station with a broken seatpost...

    you think a blast at the loop is a brilliant or daft idea?. I'm torn between being a lazy sod / weather bi shite and the racked with guilt feeling I should be riding

    Jim you were missed last weekend. How's it going? How's the shoulder healing?

    stumpy_dan Pleased its healing well. Need to get the next one planned in now you mention it. There was talk of a day trip to Cannock, al thought it was central enough for many and is doable in a day. Drive, ride, late pub lunch, drive home. Maybe late January. Ill get a post up.

    Either's good. I can get to Chicksands myself though. Probably taking my 4x bike either way, so a bit harder uphill but more fun in jump gulley if Swinley.

    Wrecked from a week in Wales..

    jim_t Yeah, another friendly Midlands couple (Leicester I think) that relocated to Wales. Its very bike friendly with good facilities but you need to stock up on food. My rib is no less painful but I'm used to it now and I know what I can and can't do. Ride up the hills on MBR at Coed y brenin is something I can't do...
