The magnificent 15
Machen Miggly Moos Mountain Bike meet for organised rides every Wednesday evening, whatever the weather…… my ar*e!
A group of Great MEN gathered outside the Leg iron for Clarkey’s comeback ride. To say it was p*ssing it down would be the understatement of the year nevertheless in line with the Club strapline we rode off into the storm.
13 not 15 actually started as Crocked was running late from Steve Jobs funeral and Big Mike met us en route, still out from a Sunday ride no doubt! We set off on a blistering pace up through Tamplin’s farm and took a sharp left through some field (you lot have probably named it, but I haven’t a clue!) heading back towards the forest. Needless to say Roger fell off as the ‘grass was slippery’!
Up through the forest at a blistering pace up to the Maenllwyd Junction, we then headed toward Ruperra Castle (Ricey and Big Mike took a wrong turning straight to the Hairy Bush, an easy mistake to make given that I told them the route earlier that day)….. 13 Great MEN headed to the castle at a blistering pace, up to the pond, left up the hill to a Mound thing and blisteringly back down the horse track to the Bush, slightly moist given the damp conditions. After refreshments, the second part of the run was discussed and quickly dismissed and we headed up the lane straight to the leg iron for more refreshments followed by a few more at the TA with Faggots and Wii F1 racing!!
