Warrior (2011)

Just finished watching Warrior, which I’ve been trying to watch for a while after recommendations from a few people. I didn’t look at trailers or synopsis beforehand, I was just informed it was a good watch. At first I saw that it was all MMA based so wasn’t overly keen, but being a massive Tom… Read more »


I’ve just finished watching the film Prisoners and I have to say it blew me away. I wasn’t expecting much, but I knew that because it was Hugh Jackman (the Dad) that I would see it as time well spent (I’m a big fan, just incase that wasn’t obvious). Jake Gyllenhaal (the cop) is usually… Read more »

Road up rocky down

Went out for a nice wee ride on Saturday with @bungalistic and @ian cawthorne. Decided to keep it short…only 12 miles…at a trail centre this would have been easy, but the climb up to watendlath was torture on my new 2.4 tyres. The descent down from the top was worth it though. Big rocks, drops… Read more »

Near Arthurs Pike towering over Ulswater. My currenty trusty (and getting rusty) stead! You know you have a good rider to bike relationship when you no longer have to think about what you are doing with regards to brakes, position, steering etc, and when you can just choose your line and go with it, taking… Read more »

First snowboard ride

A full day off, and a lot of snow? Lets go ride! Well, we did, hoping that the rumours of a couple of lifts opening early were true, only to arrive and have our high hopes crushed when the lifts were all locked up 🙁 So we decided to head to Ardent and do a… Read more »

WOW….it snowed!

Well that was a suprise, woke up to see…a lot of snow fall…the previous photo was only 8 hours ago! WOOOOOO!

Itching to get out…

the view to the bus stop from our living room…notice the snow 🙂 Well we have been chilling out in Chalet Chambertin with the Mountain Mavericks team for a day now, and I just can’t wait to get started. The snow has just started falling heavily and we went to take a look at Chalet… Read more »

A lot of driving….DONE

Here are some images in a slideshow of our journey down, it was like driving on the same road for 7 hours except each hour was a different month. The drive itself was amazing, really nice country side to be driven through, no traffic and not too taxing. The ferry was pretty fun too…I can… Read more »

Settmurthy “freeride” trails

Grave and I got invited out to some downhill style trails in Settmurthy, so we decided to check them out. I say downhill type trails because I am guessing that downhill riders would find it a bit too smooth, so maybe its more of a freeride place…I dunno, we took the bikes anywho! Walking up… Read more »

Stainburn with sunburn

After a night at the wakeboarding campsite, we put Ricks bike together and headed up to Stainburn. A mountain bike trail found near Harrogate with a red and a black loop. The only issue I have with Stainburn is that the loops are very short in comparrison to a lot of trail, but they are… Read more »

Wakeboarding at Sheffield Cable Water Ski

In the spirit of trying something new, we decided to try and organise a wakeboarding trip. We had been told it was much like snowboarding therefore I think it was inevitable that we would love it. Unfortunately due to the lack of money and the fact that trying this sport wasn’t cheap we only had… Read more »
