Took a trip to Wales for a friends stag do, and booked ourselves into Antur Stiniog for a day of uplift. Took me a couple of runs to get into in, but then i was hooked. Fantastic place to ride, even if we were battered by the wind and rain!

A little video to show you what you missed Razz

Well then yeh, put my name down. I'm sure most of the lads I ride with would be up for it too.
And the rain didn't bother me (once I was wet I couldn't get wetter) but the wind was making it hard to even come down some parts, we were pedalling hard to even get down

Bpw?? What's that?
Yeh was hard work battling against the wind! And been out on my bike for the first time since Stiniog, and it's took a bit of a beating, few clicks and clunks that weren't there before
