Went to Nant Yr Arian on Tuesday with Henk, Ash, James, James and Dad they decided to ride the summit trail, I’ve ridden bridalways in the dark but never a trail centre so this was going to be something new, dad charged our lights up and James picked us up around 5pm and off we went, when we got there Henk was already there so we went and had a play in the skills area, I really wanted to get better at pumping so we had a few spins on the pump track and by the end it was all starting to come together.

By now Ahs & James turned up so off we went, it was twilight and getting darker we managed The Italian job in day light and then over to Hippty Hop by now when you went into the trees it was getting very dark, we carried up and over the moors to the Mark of Zorro it was definitely time to switch the lights on, this was a whole new ball game but fantastic fun with all the tight twists and turns, then the bit I wasn’t looking forward to the drag up the leg burner, but once at the top it was all down hill to the car park, back at the van it was time to head home for tea and toasties.

 

 

Jumping Bean

Well at long last I have plucked up the courage to do the top road gap at Caersws DH Park, it isn’t so much the jump but the immediate right hand 90 deg corner as soon as you land, I have to admit I was totally buzzing after I had done it.

Nice Suprise

Bit of a surprise last night James gave us a call and asked if we fancied going to Hopton for an evening spin, it was really surprising how many people were there, we got sorted and headed out down the red XC red, then James suggested we had a play on the bottom of the DH black route so we tried a few of the jumps and mucked around for a while, then we decided to go up to the top of the DH tracks and have a ride down one of the tracks, I think dad had wondered what he had let himself in for, but he seemed to enjoy it without too much problem.20883102_1507539029327311_9019010078647166983_n

Dads photographic/camera phone skills weren’t at their best either but we got a couple of pics on some of the jumps, when we got back down the bottom of the hill we decided to have a spin around the rest of the XC route with a little detour and back to the van just before dark.
