Ride report: Friday slackers hit Afan and Cwm Carn

Well that turned out well! When someone suggests to you a couple of days in Wales in March, you don’t expect to be basking in temperatures pushing 13° but that’s exactly how things worked out. Thank goodness for Kev, our lucky weather gnome.

Ride report: Sunday 8 March – simply, Newlands Corner

Following the St David’s Day ride last Sunday the brightening weather saw the Moles diaspora spread far and wide. Some of us went south toward Peaslake (Southside Johnny and his shovel), some rambled on Ranmore with the gnarrsters (D’Andy, Al and Nick) and the rest of us joined Lay-Dave on a trip to Newlands.

Maybe it’s a bad idea to stick stuff on your crash helmet?

Blood spots on the snow

For a long time now this thought has been nagging at me and recent events have served only to bring it to the front of my mind.

I’m talking about sticking stuff on our crash helmets, more particularly the kind of appendages riders sport to capture their escapades in glorious technicolor. It’s possible you might end up seeing the wrong kind of colour entirely.
