Time off

The summer this year has been fantastic so far with only a little rain. Taken three days off of work this week to do some relaxing and riding. Just come back from Still woods where I managed to clear some doubles which have been bugging me for a while. With steep stubby kickers and 8-10 ft gaps. Almost binned it on one of them and headed towards some trees. Luckily I managed to save it. A very nice morning (always is when you don't have to work) altogether. Got over a few demons and a big smile on my face. Saw some bloke who turned up with some mates, who had just built up a 2004 Orange patriot frame with some rather nice parts on it. In a lovely white colour, fox 36 RC'2, fox DHX 5.0 2007 and other gems. It looked very nice to ride.

Going to pay Keynsham BMX track a visit tomorrow. Want to try to get more height and control on my jumps, and maybe add a touch of style.

Wish me luck.
