Mountain Biking Dalby Forest Friday 27th Sat 28th Sun 29th September 2013

I have secured exclusive use of Dalby Forest YHA for the above weekend.  21 places are available. The date set was the only one available around the time we normally go and I hope it fits with as many people as possible. The Hostel is SELF CATERING.  There is enough cycling for one day at Dalby on marked tracks for all abilities which is only 2 miles from the YHA.  Ian Boddy is in the process of sorting a Cross Country ride for the other day.  There is a Pub near by as I realise this is a…

The Point from the other end (a response to a real climbers version)

Now here we go, my partner for the day was the" Dominator" a man who's eagerness puts Derek into a very poor second.  Mob ascent of The Point as Dom calls it well to be honest so do I now. Keeping up with these boys is hard and sometimes a little lonely, that initial slope is big and long.

 

 I must admit I did think Dom had soloed the first pitch as I could not see him as I approached the bottom of the route. I know I have new axes but Holy Mother of…

The Circus has come to town

It is always difficult to motivate yourself on the Sunday of a weekend away if you have had a long and hard day on the Saturday. So with this in mind it was 10.30 am when Rick, Colin, Mark Rothwell, New Mark, Young Will and myself old Mark got out of the cars in Glencoe to head towards Dorsal Arete in Stob Corrie Lochan.



Needless to say we could not park in the nearest car park due to our late start. We did however recieve some vital information and advice from a minibus driver. I… Continue

The Boys from the North West head for the North East

After a late arrival at the Grey Corries Lodge 12.00 midnight if I remember correctly, it was an early call, on Saturday morning 4.15a.m and Rick and myself were up and about Derek and Will were woken and the long day started.



Our taxi driver Mr Eastwood drove us all to the North Face car park he went back to bed dreaming of soaring around the hills. The familiar slog up towards the CIC hut started. Now I think that I am reasonably fit but it always puzzles me when I hear Derek… Continue

Saunders Mountain Marathon July 4th and 5th

I am doing the event after a bit of a lay off. As ever Mr Kenyon (Mr Motivator) suggested I perhaps inform you all in case you were considering doing one of these events.

There is a history of the club entering these kind of events in large numbers in the past but this seems to have stopped in recent years. Anyway whats it all about, simple two days of hill navigation with an over night camp I am hoping the weather will be a little more gentle than when the other events are on so it could… Continue

Hi Mark, Just to let you know that I won't be able to come to the Biking do this weekend - I have to fly down south on a training course. Thanks for the offer - and have an ace weekend. Nice to see you all the other week,

Hi Mark, great to see you, Anne and Sophie over the weekend. Thought you might like this photo of Sophie with Theron's Harris Hawk. Sue

Hi Mark
I have had to rework the event you put on because you formatted it incorrectly, which means it would have disappeared tomorrow! Also it is best not to put your phone number in any text you put on the site because it is visible to anyone who stumbles across the site. Best to just tell people to email you or refer them to the MOB list.

Cheers, Malcolm
