Mike Cotty’s 1000km Ride

This is a hugely impressive ride and I love routes that have been planned by the riders themselves. Take a look, very unfortunate with the weather for this year in the alps on the whole. Warm winter, wet summer, not great.

The weather messed up Nico Roux’s attempt at the Tour de Mont Blanc Record attempt. He slacked off a bit and only did 12 hours something for the 330 km (9000m vert) route… !!!!

 

Anyway check out Mike in the Mountains

Transcon next year Mike???

Swinley Forest MTB

Since we have moved back to the UK and being based near London, with our whole summer being focused on road riding and racing, it’s time to get the knobbly tyres out and have some fun over winter.

We are both looking at riding a bit more cyclocross to stay sharp but in the mean time Swinley is just around the corner.

I had always dismissed any riding anywhere south of the Peaks as rubbish (excluding Bristol area) but this video makes it look pretty fun and since we are just after some evening razzing on hardtails it should work well for our needs.
