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.
Today’s dig saw us heading back up to Les’1 to try and make a little more progress. With a small team of 4 we decided to work from the bottom up, since pushing the wheelbarrow up the muddy bank is challenging at the best of times. The surface was rather slippy today, after a few …View full post
Last month we began work on finishing the bottom section of Les’1 which unfortunately Clixby’s ran out time to complete. The existing line was straight and very slippery with mud. We added an extra corner with the intention of adding more as we worked our way down the trail. Unfortunately some small-minded individuals decided they …View full post
Carrying on from our evening session a couple of weeks ago, we cracked on with adding some curves to the ‘Black Track’ today. We had a few returning members join us today too which was great to see. Bill, Matt, Lindsey and Gary all coming along to get involved once more. The felling is still …View full post
We held our 1st evening trailbuilding session in a long time last night. The hope was to get some new faces along as lots of people claim not to be able to make a weekend dig due to family, work, etc. There were no new faces. So a crew of usual suspects cracked on with …View full post
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
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.
TO ALL YOU FAIR WEATHER RIDERS…WEATHER IS LOOKING GOOD THIS WEEKEND…If you are in the lakes this weekend or fancy a trip out, come and see the Pace Cycles Demo Day at Whinlatter Forest this Saturday from 10-3.
They’ll have their full 2012 Pace fleet with them available for demos, which if you order a frame on the day you will also get 1 free service on shock/fork or 20% off a Trailside Pace Self Catering booking.
Purchases are available through 0% finance and various Cycle to Work schemes.
Please remember to bring I.D (see poster)
PHONE 01751 460599 OR EMAIL SOPHIE@PACECYCLES.COM FOR MORE INFO!
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE
This year its the Darkness-Dominator at 2600 Lumens. Who knows what nightslayer they’ll have developed by next year!
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.
Some of us recently ordered Hope’s new R4 lightset for this winter.
I gave mine a go last night.
I have been using a DX torch on my head and a Vision 2 on my bars. Last night I just used the R4 on my head.
