Trek Session 9.9

Apr172017

I have been working on this project for a little while. Themed around Aaron Gwin’s 2012 World Cup Champion Trek Session 9.9.

My frame was starting to look a little tired and old, but rather than replacing it. Why not respray and build something new, after all the frame is hand made carbon by Trek. To say we are pleased with the results would be an understatement.

Cut Gate Conversations – MTB Advocacy

Feb062017

Today Peak District MTB, Keeper of the Peak and Ride Sheffield launched Cut Gate Conversations. To be blunt, I think this is brilliant. Cut gate is the jewel in the Peak District trail offering, we mountain bikers are leading the call for its protection and preservation. Being on the front foot, speaking with other users to see what can be done.

Mountain biking advocacy in the UK has historically been miles behind representation from other trail users, we are after all a very young sport.
Written by people who have seen what was happening and decided to do something about it.
