... like the snowboarding thread, but for the summer...

TODAY I LEARNT HOW TO JUMP, IT WAS FREAKING AWESOME!

Not that high, but both wheels left the ground many many times today... I'm so happy I could fly! No pics unfortunately, but hopefully before I leave whistler I'll get some.

I'm officially in love with bikes. Screw snowboarding, this is much better!  Love

A good support bra and a helmet! Fookin ACE!  Slayer

Gotta love the muddy downhills tho... the fun of an out of control rollercoaster, with added squelch protection.  Grin

Cant say im a big fan of the uphills tho. Ive never been but Les Gets in the french alps in summer sounds amazing! a ski lift to the top then  miles and miles of screaming downhill! Damn i feel lazy now... havnt actually done any exercise for almost a year  Lips Sealed

I went on holiday to Whistler in the summer about ten years ago. I really don't like bikes normally but downhill is awesome...those slopes were an amazing ride except that I was cycling with my dad who wanted to go a lot slower than I....my hands were killing at the end of it because of all the braking.

YES, bikes rock.
They are amasing bits of enjoyable engineering that get you places.

I got myself a more road going hardtail, which i'm regretting a bit (its still a really smooth ride though)
upgrade time when I have the pennies.

One time when I lived in California I was riding my bike down the pavement towards my house and I was coming up on this house with big hedges on either side of the driveway so I thought I better slow down incase there was someone preparing to pull out. Turns out their was and if any of them had been looking in the rear view mirror they would have seen an amazing sight because just before I reached the hedge I squeezed the front break instead of the back and went flying forward over the handlebars, through the air past the driveway and landed on my mouth and chin which then proceeded to drag along the ground for several inches before the rest of my body hit.
So there I was, 8 years old with blood gushing all over the lower half of my face and running down my shirt. Man that burns and I was by that point only fifteen feet away from my house.

Sucks about your bike dude.  Angry Cry
You're gonna love Whistler. Wish I could stay for another summer, but alas, earning money and generally being boring and grown up is calling. Will have to make the most of biking around the Brissle area - I have no knowledge as I only started mountain biking out here, so if anyone's willing to show me the ropes around the Bristol bike trails that'd be awesome!

In other news - my bike is finally being fixed so I will be able to ride it on the weekend again! YEAY!  Tomato Slayer!

I've just started mountain biking again after too many years off, don't really know many other mountain bikers around Bristol though so would be up for hooking up for rides.  Leigh Woods is easy to get to locally but the best riding near Bristol is just over the Bridge.  Cwmcarn has specially made mountain bike trails (no ramblers!!!) and is only about a half hours drive away.  They also do lift in the mini bus to the top of the downhill if you pre-book with your bike on the trailer.

I just had to cancel a trip to Morzine this summer because my car broke down and cost me too much Cry

Y leigh woods is wicked if you dont wanna drive, also the timberland trail in ashton court is being refurbished for the Bristol bikefest and its really nice and flowy with a few berms etc.
Nothing here compares to wales tho and cwm carn has an XC loop and a world class downhill track!

If you wanna travel a bit further then Scotland is a step up again - it got voted the best single track in the world!!

check out the 7 stanes mountain bike park which consists of (a bit more than 7) centres all over scotland each with its own unigue terrain. I went there last summer and it was the best trails i've ever ridden Cheesy

Cwmcarn is a good option if you drive as it's only 35min away and is much better than Bristol trails.  A bit further down the M4 and you can get to Afan and Glyncorrwg (near Port Talbot), which have some amazing trials and an uplift service if you can't be arsed to ride the 6km climb at the start of the Glyn'c trails.

White's level at Afan is one of my favourite trails - the climb at the beginning is mental but once you've done that its happy days and well worth it!!!   Two Thumbs

Has anyone not had a bike nicked in Bristol?? My Kona Stinky was locked up in a mates back garden while I moved house - the next door neighbour looked out and saw a bunch of pikeys with bolt cutters making off with it. Unfortunately it wasn't insured, and he scared them off before they had a chance to nick the other one as well, which happened to be insured for 750.  Doh! So now I'm stuck with that, which is about eight years old and is worth about a tenner now I've ridden it into the ground. Gutted.

Hijack ride seems cool, would be good to meet some other Bristol mtbers.  I'm only just getting back into it after a few years out with a bad back so my fitness is somewhat lagging but i'm keen to get involved with anybody else going riding.  I'm riding a hardtail now because the rear shock on my i-drive is shagged (probably not the best for a bad back but hey it's all I could afford!).

I'm back in Bristol in two weeks once my secondment in Poole finishes and would be up for meeting up with anyone although I may hold some of you more regulars up a little Two Thumbs

Just got the photos back from the weekend. None of the ones of me jumping (the pathetically small jump as it now looks in the photo) came out - they're all of me landing... rubbish!

Here's a random shot of me on a bike from the weekend:

No - it's just me on the top of a very small table top... it's embarrassing... it was one of my first few attempts so the jump is miniscule (when I showed my friend at work she actually said 'I don't get it, where's the jump?'  Embarrassed ), and I'm not even in the air, I've just landed... rubbish... I should post it now I suppose after that disclaimer... gah! Here you go...






Wait for it (it's dead impressive)  Bad Teeth ...














(I assure you I was jumping larger ones by the end of the day!)
