ride2015 – march

the road bikes came out of hibernation

A month of contrasting weather and riding takes me to the 1/4 point of 2015 and remaining on target to hit the 150 milestone of rides this year. March saw not only the first event of 2015 but also the first MAMIL outing of the year…


As detailed in other posts March saw the first event of the year – mixed fortunes at the Muckmedden 6 hour but none the less was a heap of fun. See Muckmedden 6 hour report

The main change that was felt in March was that lights were not needed from the start of every night ride and it won’t be long in to April that they may not even be needed at all! This can best be shown on the picture on the right taken about halfway through a local night ride with the need for lights only just becoming apparent.

So in summary March was very much a middling month just creeping over the 200 mile for the month done mainly through a lot of local rides. The total of 43 rides is pretty much on target for the aim for the year.

The main plans for April are a trip to the borders at Easter to make up for not being able to make the Bike Park Wales jaunt and a desire to finally get the full suspension bike up and running again…
