I helped run the Beastway series of grassroots mountainbike races for 10 years.

You can read about it, and its impact in a very nice article in the latest issue of Privateer.

I didn't burn too many mountain bikers and bury them in the hills.

I remember riding those when I lived in east London riding against guys like Ray Eden, Danny Milner and Jenny Copnall from the Magic Bicycle shop and guys like Clive Gosling when he was in town. Happy, halcyon days.
