Fun night talking bikes, riding and tactics while dad helped prep James bike for this weekends BDS at Hopton, bit of head scratching with a dodgy back brake but hopefully all sorted out now as the piston was stuck in the master cylinder and the best bit was I could stay up late on a school night doing what I love BIKES !!

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.

It Was Hot

Went for a ride up at Hopton Castle today, the sun was out and it was HOT, hot and sweaty, quite a few riders up there but once out on the trails you hardly saw a soul, the trails were bone dry and very dusty.

I’ve seen the castle a few times as we drove by and from the trails on the lower side of the woods so we thought we would have a look to see what it’s like.
