And so it begins……

After all the boring but very necessary, behind the scenes graft, the easy bit has started!

On the morning of Sunday 30 September we ignored the nasty forecast and met up in the car park on Harden Moor to break ground on the St Ives project.

And the Jedi winner is..

 

Well I was the lucky git who won a space on a Jedi training session with the Singletraction raffle. I entered mainly because of the prize as I am a sucker for bike related competitions so had no real idea what I had entered or won until I saw Tony pull my name out of his helmet. I duly contacted Tony, and booked myself in for the September Jumps and Drops public course to eek out the end of summer and leant to jump on dry trails (if only…). It was my second trip up to UK Bike Skills, my first was back in August last year so plenty of time for me to forget everything and get back into my bad habits to keep Tony busy.

Natural Descender, a skills day in t’ Dales.

In May I was lucky enough to win a skills day with new skills training/guiding start up Roots Riding. I was really chuffed at this, while I’ve never booked on a skills day before I’ve often considered it but just never quite got round to it. I suspect that’s a common story.

 

Their Natural Descender skills day would turn out to be pretty much tailor made for me, the riding I like, and the things I found/find challenging and love doing/want to do better. So with my trusty On-One in the car I got myself to Embsay Cragg one sunny morning, with a mild sense of trepidation, and only a small skills shopping list in my head to see what would happen.

It’s all about the winning!

Some people say it’s not the winning that’s important, it’s the taking part that counts, and they are partly right.  Because if you don’t take part you’ve got no chance of winning.

But it’s still all about the winning! Especially when you’ve got a chance to win a Jedi skills session with Tony Doyle at UK Bike Skills.
