Glentress - oops!

A Sunday jaunt to Glentress and someone had to come off. Fozz taking his turn.

night ride / ice ride = nice ride?

Me an ol' Nelly boy took a trip across to The Holm last night. Two things worthy of note - One, ice, about a third of the track was solid, inches thick ice and we had to shuffle around in slow motion. Two, unfit, after weeks of minimal riding because of snow and ice my legs were burning after short climbs and the short track felt like a day ride. Not good.

New member

The latest member of the Langholm bikers, Dave "Fozz" Forster. Hope he doesn't mind us posting his vid on here, he's not been biking long so we're taking bets on when he'll fork out for a big boys bike.

Ok, the snow is getting boring now. Please #*!? off!

Is it possible to take a self timed photo of yourself without looking like a tool? I'll keep trying despite my lack of success.

First ride of the year

Another year when the traditional 1st of January ride didn't happen, this year due to an infection in and around Paul's chesticles. We managed to get out on the 3rd and here we are.
Idea -
Wouldn't it be smashing if the self timer camera option sent your camera a half mile down the road where it would take a low angle, exciting shot of you flying past, leaving grit and dirt exploding in your wake; rather than these posed images that are almost Victorian in their lack of motion. Might help if we smiled but I think we're too busy holding the guts in - or trying in any case.
