I will try to post a pic of what the local conditions are like on the trails here at the moment, but until then suffice to say that parts of the UK had a month's rain in one day last week.

It is a wash out. The jet stream has apparently moved much further south causing low pressure over the UK and lots and lots of rain. Set to be like this until September apparently - which is when child number two is due so I'm fecked for riding much this year!

Yeah! Black 8 is soo much fun. Did you do the secret trail half way down under the pipes?
You're right it's such an amazing place to ride. Did you guys hire a guide? And where did stay?

Yeah, did that trail too :) We went with Trailaddiction, they provided the guide and the place we stayed at, in Nancroix, a very small village. Pretty nice, but next time will probably hire a guide for a few days or so and go on our own. When did you go?

Went about 3years ago and stayed at chill chalet in bourg, can't say good enough things about them. Place to store ya bike and AMAZING food.
We hired Rob from coolbus who showed us some beauty secret trails, including one called 'secret garden' that literally ran through someone garden! Haha.

I said I would try to illustrate just how bad it's been here in Blighty so far this year. This is our local riding spot - the situation made a lot worse by logging activities on top of all the rain.



A mate stuck on his way home from work yesterday!



This is what happens when the jet stream slips further south due to polar ice melting.
