Surrey Hills MTB



Golden Valley in the dry

Good ride last night. Me, Mark, Matt, Malcolm and Andy grunted up to the PB and flew down the other side on Golden Valley then down Marbles to Thursley again.

Major conclusions of the evening:

  1. Should have taken the GoPro – following Matt and Mark down Marbles to Thursley was awesome – mostly due to close proximity!
  2. Really need to get the feckin’ tubes out of my tyres
  3. Marbles is just nasty.
  4. Andy “no-likey-the-Marbles”
  5. Andy, Malcolm and Matt are up for a Morzine 2016 trip
  6. Walkers Pickled Onion crisps are still awesome (despite the Three Horseshoes ordering them by mistake)
  7. We need to MTFU and visit the Donkey again at some point in the near future – just for sensible pint drinking….

Off for a couple of weeks – see you in August


Back at the Bowl

Good ride last night, just me, Steve and Mark flying the flag up to the Punchbowl and down the back way into Thursley as we’ve slipped into the holiday season.

Overriding conclusions last night were:

  1. Fat tyres are not mandatory in the French Alps if its dry and hard-packed like it was in Morzine
  2. Walkers Pickled Onion crisps are really, REALLY lovely and we need more of them
  3. The Three Horseshoes is back on the pub list – excellent beer (but not too many)
  4. Mark needs to get rid of his Alpine tyres “toute de suite”
  5. Steve has successfully ‘beasted’ me and Mark, just Dave and Matt to go
  6. I am going to the French Alps next year, irrespective of anyone else, I’m going
  7. I have no idea just when the hell I’m going to get round to dealing with the video but I will try as soon as possible
