We had a great turnout last Sunday for the first DH trip of the year to BikePark Wales. Old and new faces alike joined for an awesome days riding in what is a very well thought out and constructed bike park. The mixture of flat out and flowy blue runs, more challenging rock-strewn reds, and full on suicidal blacks with names like ‘Enter the Dragon’ and ‘Dai hard’, meant there was something for everyone. Our numbers were also bolstered by several men of steel (lunatics) who opted to pedal up the monstrous hill on which the bike park sits. Even the characteristically Welsh drizzle steaming up our googles could not ruin our fun.
Cheers to everyone who came along, keep an eye out next term for more DH trips. In the pipeline we have another uplift day at BPW, a possible uplift at Cwmcarn, as well as a Southwestern Uni’s unofficial miniBUCS DH race with Bath, Exeter and Cardiff! Watch this space.
