I’m in with Immy. Aged 7
OK – Listen in folks.
If the weather is good and dry for a while, we will look to use the Caerphilly Pump Track again on the 18th. If it is not, then we will use Parc Penallta – http://your.caerphilly.gov.uk/countryside/parks/parc-penallta. RVP for Penallta will be the top car park off Penallta Road.
Contact me (Keri) on the day to confirm venue for the evening.
Weather looks fair for tomorrow so see you all at Caerphilly. Kids need helmet and water.
Can’t make this one, I have to work a late shift 🙁
Charlie gutted.. Had to go to van twice already since last month’s session!
Hoping to be there, have to see how Cerys is she is on antibiotics at the moment.
Bike school postponed due to low attendees. Rescheduled for the 29th August sorry.
Well done Richy, great write up and superb result… will you sign my helmet?
Incredible result. Utmost respect to you Rich. Great write up.
Awesome effort rich FairPlay!
This has been postponed on the 29th because of the poor weather forecast. Please look out for update.
Keri, can you post a link to the images so we can have a closer look. Got some ideas but not sure if they are already detailed. Cheers.
Come on guys. Get the thinking caps on, no matter how crazy your ideas might be!!
I’d like to see chain rings on there somewhere.
Count me in!
2 kids Charlie 7yrs Will 5yrs
Yes, mine will be attending, Morgan 10 and Thomas 7
Loved the first top second design I have grown to like defo need to keep the dragons tail ! Perhaps have our names or nick names on top , a lot depends on sponsors are we putting a ” crown ” on there
Dragon tails a defo Tony. Nick names is complex but I can look into it. Sponsors is tricky. Who deserves a place on such a prestigious club top?
Im in. Really looking forward to this one. Missed the last time not going missing it again
Hoping to make this as well. Great route and highly recommend it 🙂
Hoping to be able to make this one too
I like TJ’s suggestion of Nicknames. Does the club moto of “ride safe, ride often” appear anywhere? And to back up Twiglets comment, there is little I can remember on the tops that shows we are a MTB club – so chain rings or MTB silhouettes’s could be an idea? What about putting the contour lines of Machen / our club riding areas on them, like you see on Raceface Atlas stuff?
How does this compare to Richy Turners Breacon Ride? Technicality / experience / stamina???
Should be able to make this one. Gutted I missed the last one so I’m looking forward to it.
Im definitely up for this. Wanted to do this for years.
Wearny its all rideable your more than caperble of doing it your guides are exceptional thetrails and views are stunnimg you eillnever forget this one
or ad nicky would say tahe ups where easy the downs where good
this is the best mtb ride I have fine bar none
Hope to make this one ! Sounds like a great ride !
awesome ride with great guides don’t miss it
Please forgive Nev’s grammar on the previous posts. He was probably under the influence of pain killing substances;).
Looking forward to this one. I know that this will be well run as the guides from Trailspotting are fantastic.
These ideas are great! Love TJ’s idea of names/nicknames, and some more MTB related designs like the chain rings Kel suggested. And the silhouette of Machne/Wyllie range sounds awesome, could put some sort of design inside the silhouette too, a collage of various beers and ciders perhaps?
I’d like to see how the HWU logo off this shirt would look like on the newer design.
Could the names be printed on at Darren Morgans or DT later. Then people can put on whatever they like at they can then pay individually. Worth looking into
Got to be careful that we are not copying other shirts eg SWMTB or grannies ring etc.
Can we have them in PINK 😉
Meet at the Civic in Pontllanfraith and not Crickhowell.
Sounds good. I’m in
Jingle my bells. I’ll be there!

After getting excited to do this ride. I’ve Been informed it’s my friends 30th birthday so unfortunately I cant make it once again ;( always next year have a good one
Yep sounds good
Marcus has confirmed that the ride is still on guys. See you all Sunday.
Ok guys, we have an update for you. The slot we have allocated to us at the restaurant is 6-9pm. The plan is to meet as close to 6pm as people can make it and aim to eat at 7pm. We’ll have the food and a good giggle and when they kick us out we will head into town.
Due to the limited time available, we will do the club awards at the AGM at the end of November.
Yes count me in.
Count me in I’m up for this.

I’m up for it depending on what what time everybody is meeting, night shift on the 14th.
Sounds a good day count me in
Sounds good, im in.. Not fussy which bike as long as it has fat tyres 🙂
I should be up for this one. E bikes sound fun.
Sounds good, wouldn’t mind trying out the e-bikes!
If it’s not too late, put me down, too, Keri!
I’ll be there
Chain rings, cliché.
Vee dub, chavtastic
Dragon, over done i feel
I love the 4th Jersey but it seems a little too similar to the original (which I love)
The 5th is brilliant, the best design I feel we’ve had.
Big thanks to Jamie for the sterling work, didn’t mean to dismiss any of your work fella, just giving my honest critique
Dragon on front with tail and wesh flag on rear.
I think the glc top is a grower keri! I think would look better with logo on sleeves rather than wording on there. The dragon design cool. I agree with dom , no chainrings!
Not as keen on the designs with white on them.. Maybe white could be reserved for a road bike specific version?!
I like the 4th one. There’s alot of white on thay left sleeve, how about making it red?
Firstly I’d like to say a big thanks to Jamie for the designs. Cracking job.
No1: Chainrings – bit of a cliche but good effort
No 2: just say no
No3: like the Dragon head on front / tail on back idea. Think dragons head could be worked on
No 4: Classic, like original – keep it old school. Also keep it in black
No 5: looks like a pointy cock.
Only my opinions. But only 2 I’d even consider buying
Chain rings!!!!!!!! Haha just kidding. I prefer number 4 out of all of them.
2. Like this, but lose the chain and put the VW in the middle.
3. like this but needs some black.
4. Looks like a subway uniform, maybe change the white arm to black?
5. Like this but why have the tail on the front? also needs a black arm instead of white.
Conclusion… less white, more black imho. 🙂
3rd across is by far the best, clean, simple and sharp! Others are so clustered! GLC makes me wanna spew, chainring just makes me think Castle Bikes and the others look similar to previous Jerseys.
1. Best chainrings I’ve seen on a shirt but still a no
2. Lose the chain and straighten the VW and it looks much better
3. Like this design a lot. Agree that dragons are a bit clichéd but this one makes you look twice
4. Great looking design but think the white arm should be replaced with red
5. Think this would look great as the back print on the dragon shirt
Same as other comments really 3 and 4 with more black on sleeve would be my opinion.difficult to please everyone.
Number 3 or Number 5, but in both cases, turn the big blocks of yellow background (sleeve/chest respectively) into black.
I also like number 4, but again, would want a solid black background so the logo edges don’t get “lost” in all the confusion…
i proper loves design number 2
otherwise number 4 with right hand sleeve in black
Agree with most of the others, #4 & #5 but change the white sleeve for red, black or yellow

Get in quick solo entries are selling out quickly, would be great to get a few teams in for me to chase again
No problem glad you are coming over again this year, the main issue is
camping now I know you boys are coming Ill block book you some space.
Let me know categories etc when you can.
Can we try and get numbers together at next meeting so we can let them know as you know if you have been before space is tight and they try to accomadate us with a good spot next to trail with space for gazebo
So let’s get it sorted and get numbers in
Keri has said the club will kindly pay the camping for us so it’s just your entry fee for your category
Keri please can you order me a xl short sleeve top
The mtb Xc endura style Jersey please
I’m interested in joining this club but obvs missed the newbie date…Can I join a current group or is there a newbie event soon?
One of the boys is organising a ride to FOD end of March. The trail is great fun and perfect for newbies. Your more than welcome to join in.
We have a wide range of riders in the club from people finding their feet like me lol right up. Where do you usually ride? See u out trial side soon.
Me and mark in Nev
Can I have a long sleeve XL please?
Just a reminder if you intend doing bike fest please let Rachel or keri know at the meeting please also be good if you can cough up cash as Paul has informed me that it’s selling really quick this year
So if you are wanting to do it get in quick
You snooze you loose
Cheers guys and gals
FOD next weekend all welcome hope weather is good we can make a family day of it too
I’m in if captain onsie is about
We will be riding nant y Arian on the sat , looking forward to it
Great club day out this ,I’m in
I did mention it at the meeting but i thought id put it on here too. Due to not a great amount of parking space up there it may be worth seeing if we can get some vw vans to take bikes and gear up and then fill a few cars with people.
nant on the sunday meet at nant for 10.30 give the guys who want to travle up time to travle up and join us
Change of plan, we are now riding on Saturday from Nant for 10.30
See you at 6
Sounds like it should be a good one
Maybe as a Marshall.
I can Marshall
I’m in looking forward to a good club day
this ride will be postponed till a later date as the weather outlook isn’t great will be riding afan instead all welcome
meet at afan 9.30 leave for W2 10am
