Hamsterley Beast

The Hamsterley Beast was a beast indeed!

8 hours saddle time. The first loop headed out into the Raby Estate for some slogging but also some super trails through the woods.

Then two laps of Hamsterley – some of the usual trails and some other. I missed the official cut-off for the last lap by 5 minutes, but carried on and completed it on my own anyway. I still managed to catch up people that had made the cut off.

It was a great event all in aid of Great North Air Ambulance.

Canada #canadamoon

The one where Kirsty came snowboarding, where we did tourist stuff in Banff, where Kirsty got rescued off a mountain, and where Phil and Adrian did Delirium Dive THREE TIMES, and where Megan did it for her first time. The one where Adrian went heliboarding and no-one was jealous AT ALL…!
The one where we ate like kings and queens on top of the mountain and the one where “I’m going snowboarding”…
