Cold & misty ride in the hills around Reeth today. The bothy at Apedale Beck was a welcome lunchtime stop to get some warmth - someone had even left the log burning stove going! Great descent down via the old mine workings on Grinton Moor to the @dalesbikecentre for tea & cake before the rain arrived!

Great birthday ride yesterday at Glentress and then at Innerleithen. First time for the Lapierre Zesty at Inners, it handled it well & was great fun! Beautiful weather until this last descent down Cadon Bank when it decided to chuck it down!

First ride in almost a year with @SwaledaleOC - I had almost forgotten how good riding in the @yorkshiredales is, especially with local knowledge of the trails and hidden gems!

Had a great demo ride of this @bird_mtb Zero AM (boost) around Hamsterley today. Felt light, quick and great fun on the K-line and handled the sloppy off-piste trails well. A top hoon!

Fantastic snowy day out on the bikes yesterday - Iron Keld, Hodge Close & Little Langdale which included playing around in Cathedral Quarry - I like how the photo is lit by the natural light streaming through the roof of the quarry.

Fantastic bonus ski day due to cancelled easy jet flight home! Dumped it down heavily with snow most of the day, then cleared to sunshine for a last late evening, post vin chaud ski back down to Les Carroz.

Apparently the beast from the east is on its way? Or maybe it will be the @hamsterleybeast! Certainly wasn't as cold as expected at Hamsterley today, just a gorgeous sunny day - perfect for a quick blast round before heading off to the Alps for skiing. πŸ˜ƒ

The snow came back on Sunday! Swirral Edge was in fantastic winter condition, but upon reaching the summit of Helvellyn we were greeted by 60mph winds with snow and hail. No place to hang around, and you certainly don't want to take your crampons off too early πŸ™ˆ as putting them back on in those conditions was testing!

How about a none bike photo? Despite a horrendous weather forecast for Saturday, the Lake District decided to treat us to all weathers... rain, wind, snow, sunshine & rainbows! .
