we went to the brecfa red trail today to do some thinking for next years do lectures.

we only really made plans the night before so his morning was rushed to find my bike that has been in bits since the Brecfa enduro this year. We met up with Andy Middleton from TYF.

i found the wheels after a 20 minute hunt, jumped in the car and set off.

when we were putting the bikes together Andy asked where my saddle was and i immediately knew.

In my garage in the white wire shelf above the grinder and below the hammers.

two and a half hours out the saddle is time enough to ingrain on my memory never to forget gain.

my legs were too pumped to relax on the last crazy drop.

the ride was amazing. 10 degrees, a very light drizzle punctuated by work chatter. a nice way to do a "meeting"

On Monday night the ride home was a challenge on the cross bike.

It's been raining lots over the last few weeks and the lanes home have little streams flowing over them about an inch deep.

By 6.30pm these had turned to sheet ice making 35% of the ride home not only unrideable, but nearly unwalkable. Especially in cycling shoes.

So i let the tyres down to 20psi, unclipped and prepared to bale.

There was one corner where you come down a hill, into a fast lefthander into an uphill and the whole thing was like glass. The only way was to slide down on my arse, and then pull myself up the other side on the wall.

I love those rides home where it's a challenge and you feel scared and uncomfortable and challenged. Breaks the norm.

'Away from Home'. This was a ten day trip that took in two Downhill World Cup races in Quebec in Canada this year. Rob Warner at the wheel. The footage below is of Josh Bryceland winning the Worlds in Italy a month or so before Canada.

They are £15.00 each. we have ones for 26" and 700C rims.
