Its been an extremely busy year for the admin team at MBNW, apologies for the lack of forum rides and input in general. Sometimes other activities and life get in the way of riding bikes. Tarbo has been busy training for brutal triathlons and Ultra marathons and various other ways to inflict as much pain on himself as possible. Below is a picture taken during his most recent outing, which involved running round the entire Llyn Peninsula, yes MBNW has its very own Forest Gump!
Meanwhile Dan B has been busy opening a bike shop in Llangollen to help keep cyclists of all disciplines riding their bikes, Llan Velo is a Trek Demo Centre and has a pick of Trek Bikes to test from the door. In addition there is a full workshop facility to keep your bike in tip top condition or make any running repairs. There is the customary 10% discount to all MBNW members and they have the ability to price match on certain products in store. Dan also found time to ride the Fred Whitton back in May, pictured below on Hardknott pass sporting the MBNW kit.
As of September we aim to get the forum rides running again, Dan B is having a think of a suitable route to kick things off again and will post up details on the forum. Its looking like it will be September 25th which is a Sunday, so if you haven’t been out on the bike for a while you have a good few weeks to get some rides in again before we head in to the Autumn rides…..Look forward to catching up with you soon!
