I bought a new old bike back in the summer. I had a good hybrid town bike thats been great for hauling the kids along on the tag along trailer bike thing, but decided I wanted to do a bit of off road single trod biking. Single track is good, but single trod is totally out there especially with my very poor skill set.
A trip to the recycling site at Moleigh got me a an old Trek 3700 MTB in great condition from the wonderful people at LORI. £100 seemed a bit steep at the time but I’ve put lots of miles on this wee cracker and it seems very forgiving.
A great trip to Keswick with Oban MRT for a training weekend gave us a few opportunities for improving my technical skills on hire bikes. Really liked 650b but struggled with a 29er.. A nincredible day at Whinlatter and then the classic Tour of Skiddaw the following day.
