gravity – a day in the life of mud

So Saturday saw us competing in the Gravity 12 hour, hurling ourselves round a 13km mountain bike course – single-track, firetrail, and swathes of mud.

Three teams of us competed, I was in a team of three that became a team of two after losing Nick to injury. Lap times, all around an hour. Final laps completed in the dark, complete with bikes covered in red LEDs and tinsel.

In short, it was muddy, and lots of fun.

  1. That’ll teach me for doing it on a rigid… The single track with foot deep quagmires was fun though, except the trees don’t have much give in them.

  2. Yeah, good old quagmires. And I concur on the trees. Could be softer. Possibly foam – now that would make for a fun course :)
