FC and Singletraction want to see about getting things back up and running. So FC will be holding a meeting about Dalby’s cycle trails on Sunday, 19 February. The meeting is scheduled to start at 10am and is being held in the courtyard community room at Dalby.
Yorkshire Water have been pretty good in the past for opening up permissive bridleways, though they have shied away from offering shared use of footpaths on their land. But they are still ahead of many with their embracing of mountain biking. They took another big step this year when they invested heavily in a new …View full post
One of SingletrAction’s regulars pontificates on the jargon, and the meaning, of mountainbiking in an effort to answer what at first seemed a simple couple of questions – What is gnar, and what is flow? Part 1 – The Gnar First things first. Us mountain bikers have silly names for things…View full post
What a fabulous day up at Stainburn for the October dig day in fact it was almost too warm, but who is going to complain at this time of year. It was a small crew this month just a 4.1 people turned out so we decided to concentrate on completing the new black rock section …View full post
We all know how tricky it can be to cross over the busy road to Norwood.
Sometimes it’s down right dangerous crossing over to the natural trail, not only for people on their bikes but also for motorists, who suddenly find a load of people in the road.
The local council and Forestry have asked that for safety reasons could cyclists using the unofficial cleared lines in Norwood Edge please access the forest from Stainburn Moor car park.
We hope that Barrow Load will become an interactive way for the organisation (membership/supporters/friends) to share news and information, the content is not exhaustive but is more a pick ‘n mix of news and activities.
If you want to improve cycling opportunities in the Bradford District and have got a few minutes spare head over to the website and do your part.
What’s dafter than racing your bike down the Descent Line without a chain – how about sticking your chain back on but doing it in the dark!After a recent SingletrAction group buy of the latest Hope R4 lights, as sure as eggs is eggs, the logical conclusion was ‘Mates Night Race’. Ok, Race is pushing it, it was more of an excuse to sneak out on a Monday night for a blast & completely lacking in any prizes.
Just when you thought SingletrAction had gone as far as it could go by joining the hi-tech world of Paypal, we have only gone and added the choice of an automatic Annual Renewal!! Lord only knows what will be next…
So if you’re renewing your membership in the near future, look out for the annual renewal box. It will be one less job for you to do next year, woohoo, more riding time
Big up to Steve & Libby for their hard work.
I like to do well for me but I never really knew what my potential was or in fact is. I had a go at a small triathlon in July and did ok; it was for charity and I did it for fun; I could’ve come last and I wouldn’t have minded so long as I wasn’t severely incapacitated at the end….which I wasn’t – the day after though was another matter!
Anyway, there was a defining moment when I thought “I know what I’ll do, I’ll get fit”. It happened one afternoon in the car park at Stainburn Forest – I guess that’s the impact that place has!
I have been cycling properly for about 11 years; by properly I mean without reflectors, baskets and spokey dokeys and, if I do say so myself, I don’t do bad but I knew I wasn’t at my best.

You, lucky SingletrAction trailbuilders just have to turn up and dig. Each trailbuilding day attended gives you a name in the hat. We will draw the prize next year in time for the winter season.
So come along to a dig for a chance to put your riding buddies in the shade.
