Mountain Biking
Outdoors

I ride a lot in the dark and manage occasional weekends away.

I ride in the local woods every Thursday night, finishing at the New Inn, Waterley Bottom . Companions include Nick, Tom, Martin, Scott, Simon, Bruce, Andy, Simon Wells, Mike R. and occasionally Sean.

Sometimes we go further afield - Cwm Carn is less than an hour away and Leigh Woods is OK.
