Because of the Clic24 hour preparations, a short report this week I’m afraid.
Dickie led 15 riders, on his now familiar opening section up Turner’s lane, accompanied by moans from many, especially ‘The Mechanic’ Johnny Wright who graced us with his presence for the first time for a while. Johnny’s alternative training regime for the Clic24 was unconventional to say the least! One ride in three months is not exactly the Lance Armstrong way.
The ride skirted the coal tips in Trethomas / Bedwas and headed towards the zig-zagged descent to Bedwas Cwm.
ride was interrupted at Van Road dirt jumps (where the ever gnarly Crock
gave some advice to Caerphilly’s young radical dudes!) by ‘The
Mechanic’ having a ‘Mechanical’. Johnny’s chain
was quickly put back together, under the master’s watchful eye
of course, by Harty, and we were off again heading towards Rudry Common.
(arriving late for once!) joined us at the Maenllwydd, arriving just
prior to the lads from MTB-Wales.
I hope the Moos behave in the appropriate manner at the Clic24 Hour.
See you on the trail!!
