    Went out MTBing at the weekend for the first time in 10 years. Last last time i was offroading regularly it was riding on a xc frame with 80mm fork so all the remaining technique and muscle memory was seemingly useless on my new Kona full susser*. I got scared, muddy, fell off a couple of times and had my shins shredded by brambles....
    .... It was BRILLIANT !!

    It has also woken up the trail building fairy and my friend and I have plans to re work the stuff we built years back plus adding a few more.
