  • Evil Demo ride

    Well it was officially the hottest day..ever!! For the Evil demo ride. Full marks go to Luke & Cal from Evil who sweated their way through fitting pedals & setting up suspension on 18 bikes! We did a gentle bimble over Leith Hill, just enough to get the feel of the bikes & get the grin factor. The good thing about Evil's is no matter the terrain there's a bike for your needs & each model can do a little bit more than you think it's gonna be able to do, climbs like a dream & …

  • Nirvana Saturday ride 2.3.19

    The weather forecast wasn't great for the day, but it was dry & the sun even made a few appearances. There was a good turnout for the ride & consequently riders of varying abilities but this didn't prove a problem as Simon was able to seperate out the abilities so there was something for everybody. We started at 'Your heads on fire' which was super fun, lots of jumps & drop offs but mostly filled in so if it did go a bit pearshaped all was not lost! We then took in 'Veloria' …

  • Hope Factory Visit

    We've been meaning to visit the Hope Factory for quite a while & finally we managed to make it happen. We were especially keen to see how the Hope HB160 frame were made but it was also an opportunity to see how the parts we've been ordering for over 20 years were produced. 

    The entrance lobby to the factory was worth the visit alone with a history of mountain biking effectively on display & it was at least 10 minutes before we managed to drag ourselves away to meet Doddy, our …

  • Snowy fun 2019

    What a fab weekend of riding in the snow. It arrived Friday night which was perfect timing for the Saturday ride, it has to be said only a few hardy souls rocked up to brave the cold! It was worth it though, the scenery was stunning & the two Fat bikes came into their element & did what Fat bikes were designed for...cruised over the snow, big smiles all round. The Sunday ride was braved by a few more hardy souls & covered about 20 miles which was pretty good going in the conditions. …

  • Nirvana Santa Ride 2018

    The Nirvana Santa ride was great fun again, with everybody getting into the spirit & donning an assortment of outfits. The weather was kinder this year & we managed to get to the BBQ spot without looking like drowned rats! Paul (Santa on reindeer) had kindly volunteered his all singing all dancing camper van for us to use for the bbq, consequently, it was a very civilised affair this year & with Dave acting as chef the sausages were cooked to perfection. Thanks to Clive (Hammonds …
