Hello All
« on: March 11, 2016, 11:58:52 PM »
Hello All,
Just joined tonight, took me couple hours to get through the sign in details, not the brightest see!!
Started out bit of MTBing about 6 months ago to loose a bit of timber but soon found that I actually enjoyed riding down hills!!
Do most of riding up in Afan with mates from work but have done the Clyne trails, well Millers I think, a couple of times on my own and really enjoyed but would like a bit of guidance around there.
Will do my bestest to join up on a Thursday night but due to being a shift worker this normally is a only a couple of times a month jobbie!!
Well anyway hello & cheers from a fat bald wannabe MTBer

Welcome Pogo. A familiar tale. You'll find like minded people ;) Keep an eye on the Other Rides threads - there's may be a Clyne ride today.   ;)

Hello, welcome to the forum. There's always someone riding on Thursdays but with the weather improving and nights getting shorter, I'm sure there'll be tons more riding posted up.

What do you ride then, c'mon tell all.
Slower than the speed of dark

Thanks for the welcome guys.
Riding has been a no go this weekend but hoping to get out tomorrow afternoon.
Ill keep an eye out for any other rides going on & hopefully ill be able to come along.
Riding a Specialised Pitch Sport(think) at the moment but quite possibly looking to get a full sus later in the year so ill be picking your brains then.
Cheers again

LOL  :D No, I'm afraid you landed in the middle of an in-joke. The old full sus Pitch was a legend (IMHO) but Spesh replaced it with an XC hard tail which upset me and made me a bit ranty  ;)
