The Arch, Myherin

Day 172 - photo a day 2017

Wed 21 June 2017

Weather is still really, really hot so I took the afternoon off and went up to Myherin. All of the trails were riding great and I almost managed to ride the top of Truman clean. I also found some new trails to ride which was cool! It was hot enough …

Wed 14 June 2017

This evening I went for a ride on the Levo. It was going great, toboggan was riding great and the weather was nice. I decided to head out the top of nant on the Syfydin route. As I climbed up to the Bont Goch descent I was trying to choose …

I went for a very short ride today, I decided to ride something a bit different to usual on the way back. I rode the fireroad from Llyn Pendam to Cwmerfyn, bit of a different view to usual

Fri 26 May 2017

Earlier in the week I booked today off as the forecast looked great. The forecast was correct! I'd planned to do a "sea to summit to sea" ride, something that's been on my radar since Dave and Pete rode it last year's solstice. The summit being Pumlumon, the nearest mountain …

Today was ridiculously nice out so I took a half day and went for a ride up at nant. I'm really running out of angles/places to take photos of up there now!

Decided to go for another ride today, rode the same route as yesterday. It was, once again, great!

Fri 19 May 2017

Finally wanted to ride my bike again. However, I decided to try to accept that going fast isn't option and to just take it easy. To emphasise this I decided to take a beer with me. I only rode toboggan and gogerddan woods but it was fun.

Sun 07 May 2017

I had so much fun yesterday that I went back to the same trails today, although I didn't do part of the loop. I did one descent a couple of times and I had a good explore. It was rad. On my way back I also pushed up something that …

Sat 06 May 2017

I actually had quite a busy day today. I woke up quite late at 9:15 having got around 10 hours of sleep! I cleaned up and photo'd some bike bits that I want to sell. Just as I finished doing that Elysia rang me and asked if I wanted …

Fri 05 May 2017

Woohoo my mojo to ride has returned! I decided to drive up to the nant visitor centre and have a bit of a play on the skills area. I still have no skills so I decided to do a loop of the pendam trail. The weather was beautiful also a …

End of the Dyfi Enduro

Day 120 - photo a day 2017

Sun 30 April 2017

The day has rolled round and it's been the Dyfi Enduro. The difference this year was that there were 2 routes, the enduro and the bach. The enduro was 55km and the bach 40km, they were similar routes but the bach just cut a few bits out. Looking at the …

Specialized Tactic 2

Wed 26 April 2017

My new helmet came today, a Specialized Tactic 2. I decided to buy a new helmet for 2 reasons; my catlike that I use on the road is ancient and my bell super is too warm in summer. I wore it on a ride last night and it's much better …

Broken bike

Day 106 - photo a day 2017

Sun 16 April 2017

As I've entered the dyfi enduro I decided that I'd best do a long ride on the mega today to test my legs. I also fitted a dinner plate cassette (11-42) yesterday so wanted to try it. I set out and got up the mountain road feeling pretty good and …

Day 100 - photo a day 2017

Mon 10 April 2017

Woohoo 100 days! Today I took a half day as it was nice outside and I didn't really want to be in work. I drove up to near nant with the mega and rode the top of nant + toboggan. Managed to ride toboggan fully feet up which was a first …

Sat 08 April 2017

As the ebike is still off for warranty I decided to head out on my mega today. The weather was really nice (I actually sunburnt) and I fancied toboggan and the secret descent. I spent a while trying to get round the bottom corner on toboggan and I finally managed …
