  • West Highlands Tour 20/10/10

    West Highlands Tour 20/10/10

    Tracey & I got settled in at a Hotel in fort William on Tuesday Evening after stomping around Edinburgh on Monday & I still haven't been up Aurther's Seat!!. We spotted a weather window for today with Frost to start then sun with snow forcast for 4pm (Thursday & Friday looking crap ) so with a route in mind I puswaded Tracey that it was now or never & we'll be alright if we take all the gear inc lights. This route is in the Guide book & also in MBR; a tour around Ben Nevis, 69km & 1700mt of ascent, three river crossings, 2 bothies & final 7km descent. We woke up so-early that we had to switch the lights on in the resturant & with no cooked breakfast in sight we set off at 7am in the frost....

  • Glentress Weekend 2010

    Glentress Weekend 2010

    The club has just returned from the second of its weekends away this time in the fantastic settings of Glentress and Innerleithan. After breakfast in Moffat the 40 strong contingent of Woollies rolled into the carpark at Innerleithan for the first of the weekends rides.

    The red and black trail begins with a monster climb which although technical and tricky in places means plenty of height gain for an awesome downhill finish with jumps and berms and drops a plenty. All survived "relatively" unscathed.

  • September News

    September News

    September proved an “Eventful” month with members participating in a number of distance riding events including 2 doing the Kielder 100, a 100 Mile 1 day off road epic, 5 tackling the Isle of Mann End to End event, and 8 taking part in the Mary Townley Loop challenge, a 47 mile Pennine bridleway off road bonanza in spectacularly awful conditions. All members did the club proud with fantastic results and good times had by all.

  • Mary Towneley loop 19/09/10

    Mary Towneley loop 19/09/10

    Well what a difference a year makes, last year when we did this event the conditions were perfect, this year couldn’t have been a more different picture. The weather was changeable, that was it changed from heavy rain to very heavy rain at various points during the day. Not once did the sun show itself.

    Meeting at the school, our intrepid band of brave / stupid (delete as appropriate) Woollies joined up and registered for the event. Riders were: Clone, Knotty, Chris Watson, Carrot, Noddy, MLiptrot, Ste B, and me. We sat in the school with the rain hammering off the glass roof, and contemplated what we were letting ourselves in for. Eventually we put our race numbers on (although it is not a race!) and formed up ready for the off, it was clear that the conditions had put a lot of people off entering and the field of riders was much smaller than last year.

      by Whistling Jock
      Dear all
      We have an opportunity to have some drone footage done by a friend of mine, Chris. I've seen some of his videos and they are really superb. He is also a keen mountain biker and often takes

      Ladybower best bits: this is a true club classic, in an area every mountain biker should tick of their "must ride list" 21 miles, all thriller and no filler. If you like your ups tough, but

    • Heavy Duty Bush
      by artillerydave
      Hi all, I've been talking about these a fair bit lately to quite a few members, so thought a bit of a piccy diary might help, so here we have a step by step changing of a standard eyelet bush and alloy top hat arrangement for a heavy duty / strong bush kit. Plenty of us use them already, but if you don't then have a read. Why change? the bush is the sacrificial part of this arrangement, and wears out to protect the eye of the shock, it is fitted with two alloy top hats, as these wear the bike de...
