    Baltic Bawbags - Now with added aftermath and pictures of actual riding

    I'm going to give it a miss as well. Next time... hopefully weather will be a bit better too.

    Thanks for coming down gents, glad you enjoyed it. Conditions were definitely challenging, After 2 weeks of rain Mast of Zorro was mostly a River Runs Through It. A fair few sideways moments from all of us, a bit of mince and a lot of climbing (Keith was really pleased that he was getting to...

    Ach bummer clubby, we'll need to sort something else out up you're way again. Another Dunkeld trundle perhaps? See the rest of you ladies at 10ish at Sainsburys...

    Thanks for the map Dave, and good luck - couple of big days for you there, although I suppose the uplifts will help, though still a fair bit of climbing for you. Going to be pretty moist as well! I can see they're doing Zorro, maybe Fairy Liquid and Ho Chi Minh all the way to the Hydro, just as...

    Hmmm, parking at mine isn't ideal. Sainsbury car park off Edinburgh road might be a not bad shout - it's free on a Sunday and probably makes more sense if we finish in the town. A couple of vids... Zorro & Zorro returns (about 3:20 in): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAIH8JwA4Zc Empire of...

    There's nothing that can't be minced. or shuffled down on your arse... There's really only some steep-ish switchbacky corners on Zorro Returns and the final descent off Janet's Brae down to the Hydro. In both cases, it's really grippy (especially Zorro Returns, I was pleasantly surprised)...

    OK, went for a burl last night. https://www.strava.com/activities/2386305903 So... Fire-road up to the mast with Berm Baby Berm stop if required. Then down Mustard Snake (slightly naughty but it's not like it's busy), Mast of Zorro & Zorro Returns, Empire of Dirt / Lucy in the Sky. Back up a...

    Re: No Spend Transcend Saturday 8th June - Peebles It's look like Gritopia's only on the Saturday? It's avoiding GT altogether - staying over on the Inners side. Section 1: Cardrona Forest – 17km/350m ascent Section 2: Elibank & Traquair – 31km/790m Section 3: Leithen Water forest – 40km/795m...

    Re: Cheers Dave, some handy pointers there. Trailfairy Plan's been closed all week, probably doing some remedial work before it gets a hammering on the Epic then. As you say, if Yair's on the Sunday then it's likely that Glentress will be used on the Saturday. Thinking we should move this to...

    And today I did......

    Upper red Comrie is hardwork, it's pretty pedally and you don't really get a break. I've mostly got the route figured out now - will give it a whirl at the weekend, weather and wife permitting. I think we've got a reasonable mix so far... some old school in amongst the rooty trees singletrack...

    Re: No Spend Transcend Saturday 8th June - Peebles Just my 29er short travel 100mm full sus (Titus Rockstar) Rob. And a set of decent brakes. It was fine, the rider reached his limits before the bike did. Full sus just makes it more enjoyable and easier on the body.

    Re: Re: It's a fine line, I want to to push the comfort zone a bit, but it still needs to be fun. 'Crazy steep' is too much, I'm aiming for 'steep in bits'. I need to get a trundle up there though, hopefully it's not all falling off a cliff :) Did a wee recce up Glentress today, gave Cock...

    Re: Re: I remember that! I've since figured out a more mincey route, although still steep-ish in places. There's another trail from the fort off to the right that I don't think we've ever ridden, so need to give that a whirl. Also, there's a new final descent that takes you down to Soonhope...
