Inspirational Footage

I've never really been a fan of MTB related films as the one's I've seen have been been quite cheesy and/or dull. That all changed last night when I clocked a couple of recent releases.

The blurb reads "...captures Scotland's stunning landscape, the spirit of the place and of the people. Featuring reigning Junior World Downhill Champion, Ruaraidh Cunningham and trials phenomenon, Daniel Macaskill, Home is a must see for bike fans and film fans alike.". The footage is great, the trials segment is amazing and as it uses Scottish trails it's great to see sections you may have ridden.

Is the latest release from TheCollective, following top riders throughout a years riding. The scenery is breath taking, the slow-mo's are awesome and the footage is truly inspirational.

Both are well worth a look-see if you get the chance.

Chiltern Ride and Curry


For those interested I'd like to propose a Chiltern Ridgeway MTB ride based around the Wendover area. Ride starting from my house (Berkhamsted), and returning to my local for a well deserved Thai Curry....

Dates proposed:

July 12th - posse preference

Start Point: Lock 48 on the Grand Union Canal, post code HP4 3TF

Start Time 3.00pm

Let me know if you are intersted and your preferred dates. I'll try to organise and confirm details.

Update: Here is the link to my suggested route in Tracklogs format (pic added above): This route is not 'set in stone' and we can easily make changes on the day as required.
