I have really been bitten by the mtb bug since 2009.
In February 2009 I started training for the Coast to Coast for charity, with a bunch of 20 friends & neighbours from the Wagon & Horses South Reston.
We completed the 140 miles over 3 days riding in April, and I then knew it was XC that interested me. In June I bought my Trek EX8 which is a stone lighter than the full suss Saracen I had for the C2C! and with thanks to Justin, Roger, & James I've been learning to ride ever since.
Had an amazing first years riding: C2C, Sherwood Pines, Bicyclemania, Brecon Beacons, Laax - Swiss Alps, Kirroughtree red/black, Glentress red, Innerleithan red , Afan Forest "Y Wal" red, Cwmcarn "Twrch" red plus as many Sunday & Wednesday "Wolds" rides as possible.
