Yesterday's ride was billed as a compact one taking in all the best bits to be had on dartmoor. It didn't disappoint. First off the initial Rd climb was deceptive, looking easier than it was, being dwarfed by the magnitude of the surrounding terrain. This took us up to the start of the first descent. A singletrack path down into "the cleve". Once there we had a play around and then the long steep push up through the woods in order to gain height quickly. Once up there it was time to think "the nutcrackers". Everyone rode this without any issues, apart from grinning insanely. Off back into and thru the "cleve" and our first bit of horizontal(ish) riding ending in the climb up to the "hound of the basket meals". After the break it was "the bowerman s nose climb, cracking viewpoint. So down from the bowerman nose we rode back thru the "cleve" and to a secret location where Sean performed his party piece, the North shore drop off. Finally lanes/bridleways back to the car each with plenty of climbing (yes more climbing) especially the final climb. Iirc there were 4 black runs/sections and a lot of climbing for the mileage. 70% of the ride was going up or down. If this sounds like your style of riding look out for it next time/year. It's awesome if you have the skills but a pain if you haven't.
Thjis coming week we have 2 rides on the cards, a Night ride around Idless for Halloween and Then the Club Favorite of the Bissoe valley area Sesh!! Be awesome to see you all out there!!
Back with a Bang form the Tour du moor last week with Kensa's XC loop form Playing place, A Cracking loop taking in many of our local favorite spots and sections from other rides And a coffee stop on the way back!! Perfect!!
This weekend we are heading up to Dartmoor for a Full on Technical riding fest from our Legend of the moors Les! Please note that this is a High Grade 5 ride, a lot of steep, technical riding over big rocks and boulders etc, fast rough downhills etc. not the usual route, Am certain it'll be an Awesome loop!
We are a friendly bunch of bikers. We are proud of our easy going, relaxed atmosphere and always do our best to make everyone feel welcome. We have members of all levels, young and old, no one is left out. The aim of the club is to get fit, get muddy and have a good laugh!!!
We are located around the Central/Truro area in Cornwall. We ride at various locations each week around the County, the rides are set by a different group member each week, this keeps the riding style varied and interesting. We meet on either a Saturday or Sunday at the time and location displayed on the 'Rides' page.
Each ride is given a 'grade' to let members know roughly what to expect each week, but don't let this put you off, the rides are generally suitable for all abilities and no one is forced to ride anything they don't want too! (Grades are 1-5, 1 being easy up to 5 being Very technical)
We are pleased about the good name we have built up for our club so come along and be part of it.
