race bikes waitingthe bikers are out and about this weekend.

Pete our designer and hard core skater has bought a road bike and will be doing the Tour of Pembrokeshire.

Ruben our website person , David our logistic and Mike "the numbers" are off to the World Cup in Fort William. They will have some nice stuff to sell.

And the Bristol store and me are going to the Bristol Bike Fest.

I spent a fine evening last night fitting new gear cables and polishing the saddle over a bottle of wine.

Come say hi.

in 2001 howies did their first catalogue. it was taken at some trails with some dirt jumpers.

one of the riders was Joe Anchor who would always go bigger.

At the Manchester sample sale I met Tim Royal from whitenosugarproductions.com who caught Joe on some super8 in the same year with some other riders we went on to sponsor, and some other riders who became big names.

This was filmed before they were really good and is a nice bit of footage showing great riders just riding summery trails.

Joe Anchor, Jim Davage, Chris Smith, Steve Geall and Olly and Grant Feilder.

I went out mountain biking with Teri, Tom, David Hicks and a few others on the weekend.

I don't usually ride mountain bikes, and I don't have one, so I borrowed David Hieatt's.

We went up to Brechfa and rode the Gorlech route.... the weather held, and it was a great ride with some beautiful scenery.

My ride went really well... right up until near the end, when I came out of a berm a bit too fast, left the trail in a rut and hit a stump.

I went over the bars and landed pretty hard on my arm and leg.

 

So, with an impressively bloody leg, torn jacket and a sprained wrist, I got up and limped back to the bike.

And then things got worse...

Sorry, David.

I will get this fixed!
