  • Physio here - but off duty on rides :)

    Hi guys, Jim put me on to the wooleybacks. I have a sports injury clinic in Oldham ( so can sort out any injuries anyone has just one thing though... when I'm on a ride, I'm OFF WORK so keep your pains to yourselves haha.

    I enjoy mtb and fairly young fit and an adrenalin junkie. I have a Cannondale SR2 hard tail, experience wise I have no idea how it compares to what your rides are like. I have done a 3 day ride mainly pennine bridleway, with part of Mary townlie loop, scooted around cragg quarry at the end of the final day as we passed. Planning to nip over to Lee quarry in next week or two so will see how I find that. Probably lacking some fitness for hardcore 8hr rides at the min but shouldn't take me long to get back into.

    Look forward to hitching on a ride soon!

    Welcome to the club Rick. If you can stay in the saddle for 8 hr rides, you'll have no problem with the fitness; assuming of course it doesn't take you that long to ride around Llandegla

    I'm doing MTL on Sunday. If you reckon you can get around in circa 7 hr (ish) pace, your welcome to join me. I've posted the ride up in the Members Only part of the forum and others may be interested but many struggle to get the full day away from the better half.
    When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments. Here was a machine of precision and balance for the convenience of man. And (unlike subsequent inventions for man's convenience) the more he used it, the fitter his body became. Here, for once, was a product of man's brain that was entirely beneficial to those who used it, and of no harm or irritation to others. Progress should have stopped when man invented the bicycle. ~ Elizabeth West

          Welcome Rick, it's a great club and I'm sure you'll be glad you signed up.

          As Jim says, take a look around the bits of the forum you can see (there's lots more for full members), you'll find all the info you need on how to join up, newbie rides, members own rides (NCRs) and lots of other stuff.

          If you have any questions, just post em up and someone will do their best to answer.

          See you on the trails

            Injuries... fire away and feel free to ask if anyone needs any advice
