Its August but that’s not scaring the rain away. With possible storms due for this months dig day a few people were put off coming along. In the end it was just myself and Sean, but as always I was suprised at just how much we got done. Due to the lack of volunteers we …View full post
We knew at before we started today that it would be a small crew as we move into the summer holidays. But it just goes to show its not the numbers that matter but the dedication. So in what can only be described as a sauna it was an amazing effort from Stuart, Steve, Robert, …View full post
Having looked at the weather forecast beforehand I was expecting rain around dinnertime at Guisborough, so that would give us plenty of time to sort the last berm on Les’ 2. The weather gods had different plans however. As we arrived on-site just before 10am the light drizzle started. Not too bad we thought, we …View full post
We weren’t expecting a huge turnout for the June dig day at Dalby when we realised that the first England game of the world cup would be shown late the night before. So it was no surprise that there were only 6 volunteers. Mind you I’m sure it can’t all be blamed on the World …View full post
Well it was a bit of a solo effort at Guisborough today. Wandered up with a nice lady who is interested in joining us at some future digs, but being only me there wasn’t much for me to show her, so we had a good chat and she left me to it. The undergrowth is …View full post
The Red cycle route will be diverted at the disabled car park after Crosscliff view point. The diversion will follow the ‘Escape’ signs across to post 24. This work is expected to take a minimum of 4 weeks. Dalby Downhill will be closed for the duration of this work.
There will be other trail diversions due to felling works shortly but I will update you as this happens.Thanks.
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.
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.

Warren Boulder Trail has a reputation. It is a reputation forged in blood, bruises and brown trousers. It is a reputation for Rocks. But sitting as it does in the thick Stainburn Forest this 2004 trail has been slowly but surely reclaimed by nature. The lines have slowly changed and migrated, the aggregate surface lost under years of pine needles.
Do you and your loved one (your missus, not your bike!) wanna see Strength in Numbers for free?
Thanks to David Gould, if you are a fully paid up member of SingletrAction, you have a chance to win 2 ticket’s to see the film premiere of Strength in Numbers & the Dudes of Hazzard at a choice of two cinemas.
