If anyone fancies a trip to Gisburn Forest, I ll be there from 16.30 at Cocklet Hill carpark setting off around 17.00, and will be there for two laps so you could arrive for lap two. Lap two 18.15 ish.

Sorry I couldn't be there, as much I wanted to. As I was sitting on the second level of scaffolding, drilling into the wall, I was remembering the new crazy-fast singletrack just before the cottages, near the end. I'll find time again soon.

Those Blue chainrings need a new home!

Another visit to Gisburn complete

Now the stats:
Bike Parkpre Pro 825 1994
Image

departed Cocklet Hill carpark at 16:55

Puncture at 17:38

back on bike at 17:47

Arrived Cocklet Hill carpark 18:13, for a quick drink and a choc bar


Lap two begins 18:18

2nd lap just before quarry section
Image

Image

Arrived back at Cocklet Hill after a great 2nd lap 19:37, a lot of people to reel in and overtake this time(10 plus), including a kind bunch who thought it necessary to deal with a mechanical accross the whole width of the trail.

Image

big ring used 3 times per lap and granny ring used twice per lap (loose climb at end of quarry bit, and steep climb after root bit before wood)

bike was ace and a flying machine as always.
