Wednesday Evening Ride at Hutton Village Road- turn off for Bousdale Woods

April 20, 2016 from 7pm to 9pm
Evening ride of Guisborough Woods and Moors. Mainly XC with some red grade trail. The aim is to get fitter for summer trails and events while having a bit of banter in the process. All welcome; our regular ride isn't an all-out training blat but neither is it an easy social spin, we usually average 9-10mph for around 2 hours with plenty of climbing. This would equate to a good level of fitness on a reasonably efficient bike for most.See More

Selkirk MTB Marathon at Selkirk Rugby Club, Scottish Borders

May 1, 2016 all day
This is THE classic MTB Marathon in the UK. The course is designed by trail-building legend (he'll hate us for saying that!) Peter Laing, and is regularly voted the best in the country.Come and test yourself on a fantastic mix of natural singletrack, twin-track forest roads, ancient drove roads, hand-made singletrack, and trail centre. You'll visit the valleys of the Rivers Tweed, Yarrow and Ettrick, and of course, the high points in between. So, expect lung and thigh busting climbs that are…See More

Dalby Moors and Shores Adventure X at Dalby Forest, North Yorkshire

April 3, 2016 all day
Forests, moors, coastline and short but steep climbs make up the arena for this Adventure Cross journey in a lesser explored area of the North York Moors National Park. The contrast between the forest roads and moorland tracks, which are hard going when wet, and the sections of old railway line near the coast ensure flowing riding and a constantly changing landscape. If you are new to Adventure Cross then this is the event to set you rolling on and off road.See More

Good race fella - have to be careful with the coaching or you'll be destroying me at every race ;-) seriously though give me a shout if you want to go outdoor a session and i'll see if I can pass on any top tips
Ps i think it might be your pedalling position that needs a tweak as opposed to saddle height.

Lol bet that was a "shock" getting caught in that. Sorry you can't make it bud, they'll be other get togethers. Cheers
