A couple of spins to Tipp over the weekend saw us explore some old, and some new trails, and make some new friends too. It’s great when you meet another group of riders that you kinda know to see from previous events, but don’t really […]
A few of us decided to have an enduro training session, and yesterday was the arranged day for it. Five of us headed off from Ennis at around 2pm and, after stopping for coffee and chocolate eclairs, were on the bikes for around 4pm. 4 […]
An unexpected ‘who’s going for a spin later?’ message in our WhatsApp group led to the biggest (and most spontaneous) woods spin in ages as SEVEN of us arrived out to see how well our bike lights lit up the path under this magic canopy of trees. […]
The TE300 has been away the past few weeks for an engine rebuild, so the xTrainer got a chance to take over as king of the garage for a while. There were two spins in the past two weeks. First up, a journey to the […]
Not been up around the Lough Atorick area ever, and had a day to spare. The TE300 is going in for an engine rebuild soon so took her out on one last spin before the maintenance. For a first day in a new area I […]
So, my mission to go out at least once a week in 2019 nearly had it’s first fail, after spending too much time laying skirting boards in a bedroom yesterday, and not enough time on fun things.. Never mind though. I took a notion and […]
Recce for a new Trail? Exploring and testing a new woods loop :o) managed to eat a bug too tasty
An overlanders open day and a presentation on the Hellas rally and roadbook navigation tempted us to Wexford recently. The roadbook route looked to be mostly road based so we decided to have fun on some local trails instead. The roads seemed a bit slippy […]
It was a miserable Wednesday, and the only thing to brighten it up was to take a spin. Seeing as it was a solo spin I figured I’d take it easy and bring a couple of old cameras to record a short video from different […]
Doon bound again for the 2018 end of year run with the Long Distance Navigation Trials guys. 78km of a loop. A bit of enduro, some grasstrack, some woods.. it had everything. A great day by all accounts!!
The run that very very nearly didn’t happen!! Between the solo recce on Friday, and the actual run on Monday, some bike issues were discovered. The rear of the airbox had separated from the left subframe rail. Rear wheel bearings on brake side were goosed. […]
Had a great day out at this ‘Roadbook’ event. There were fast sections, technically challenging obstacles, punctures, and some laughs too. Great bunch of guys n girls and a great event. Huge thanks to all the organisers :o)
A lot of erosion from the recent rains have been tearing up some of those trails and created some deep ruts that you really want to avoid. The mud was slippery as hell and some of the trails were rockier than normal. Dropped the bike […]
Out in exploring the trails again. Super day for it. Dressed fashionably and all :o) Took the cycling bike to Dromore another day to test those new etrex maps, they seem to work really well so happy with that result too.
Early start today for the Easter LDNT spin.
