Can’t find the set list from the actual gig, but it was pretty similar to this – No traffic, or the wind and the waves song but otherwise about the same!
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.
Training ride for the Beast over at Chopwell Woods.
There’s a couple of really good trails here and lots of woodland trails to explore. Good spot for a few hours, but beyond that, you’ll start repeating yourself.
Great little ride out with the Hamsterley gang. Some great trails round the Lake. Bit of a hike a bike at times, but all good!
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”…
The one where it snowed and snowed and SNOWED!!
A long weekend trip with my brother. It was the last week of the season. There weren’t even any bus transfers so the holiday began with a beautifully scenic train journey from Geneva airport to Bourg St Maurice followed by a local bus from there.
The first two days were searing heat and full on melt, but then.. the snow came, and just kept coming. By the last day we were literally thigh deep from the top of the glacier. Zero visibility, but who cares!?
Our final Stereophonics gig of 2016 was Kirstys Christmas surprise. It rained, and it rained, and it rained, and then it rained some more. Brilliant gig though 🙂
Prior to the gig, we enjoyed an awesome meal and sample of whiskies in Usquabae.
This is the set list, though it’s at the very least in completely the wrong order!
