you have a fear of not being able to ride due to being so old ade? You cheeky scamp, I'm only 24 remember! I am heartened to read on facebook that Ian at Hales conquered the BX at the age of 54 after trying for 5 years - this encourages me that I have a good number of years left in me. I would ask ...

I have a dream...

I have a dream, probably once a fortnight on average for the past 6 months where I am out mountainboarding but then cannot because either I have forgotten my board or the board has been stolen. It's getting quite annoying as I don't seem to have mountainboard dreams where everything goes kickass. La...

If anyone needs some sort of directions, they are here: Bing Map of Hemlock Stone Note that the public car park on the opposite side of Coventry Lane is free to park all day. Cross over the pedestrian crossing and the hill is just to the right. If you follow the path into the park and go to the righ...

Saw this article and video a couple of months back of some fella who had built his MechWarrior cockpit. Makes my home racing setup look very amateurish!

Unfortunately not, I've got commitments both tomorrow and Sunday. I did get a couple of hours riding tonight though, so I've not gone without. Have a good session yourselves!

Certainly Dealextreem though there seem to be quite a few UK sellers selling Cree type torches on ebay for around £15-20 with battery and charger thrown in.

Looks good, Ben, I like it. Also, the downhill section actually looks steep, whereas a lot of films and photos seem to loose any sense of gradient.
More of this sort of stuff please!

Got the Wulfsport yesterday and got a bit of a ride in the woods last night. First impressions: these are massive! However, they fit around my bare (bear) knees absolutely fine with nice padding on the back of the straps. They are also not so large and fit fine underneath my camo trousers. Felt a bi...

G'day Thompy, Not a comprehensive reply here, but some bits to get started. There are plenty of dog boarding videos on youtube so it's all definitely doable. In terms of boards, if you want to stay local, then Munro Boards are worth a look. Their head office are in Victoria. http://www.munroboards.c...

I've taken a punt on the Wulfsport, they look to have very good upper knee protection. Will report back once I've had a play. Cheers EvilC!

Had probably the most fun session last night that I’ve had in ages. Don’t get me wrong, I love to ride with other people, but riding alone riding what I want at whatever pace I want is great. I always ride more when alone and with the nights starting to draw in, it’s a good motivat...

you probably would want to get 661 DJ (dirt jump) knee and elbow pads, they are strong and comfortable. So that's what the DJ stands for (I have wondered...) I can vouch for the 661 DJs as the padding is certainly nice and thick and work well for big impacts. They are that comfortable to wear that ...
