Re: Er would you do this?

Re: 18 month TRO Closure on Deadman's Hill in Nidderdale

It had been closed again only a few years ago for repairs where they also re routed it at the hill in question but again it was inadequate and again 4x4's started to damage it, so about a year or so ago a voluntary one way system was encouraged going downhill(south), but sadly the damage had been s...

Re: ABC try trials weekend

OK I'm in. The bunkhouse looks good, so up for that.
My mate can't get there until Saturday morning, so he is happy to be on the reserves list.

I'll zap the money over.

Thanks! This is an incredibly generous offer!!!
Of course I am happy to contribute to wear and tear, fuel, beer etc.

Cheers,
Dave

Well this Bugger probably belonged to MENSA. I'd gone through the village and was accelerating out, the NSL sign was about 200 metres away.
If he was bit brighter, he would have got you at 2 metres from the NSL sign. Maybe at 60MPH? :)

Re: Hard Enduro freeriding through PNG

Looks like an amazing place to ride!

Does time pass a bit quicker there? It all looks a bit speeded up to me (grass moves very quickly, damping looks super quick etc.)

If you are going to use a road bike it needs to be a couple of sizes too small and have specially built wheels though.

The backwards front wheelie down Hardknott is deeply impressive.
