    Where would a 'good' mountain biking location be (ignoring the current issues)?

    Closest is the Forest of Dean. Some pretty good FE approved waymarked trails and miles and miles of off-piste trails. If you know where to look.

    Will see more dive boats restarting, especially as the paranoia abates and the self-appointed ‘authorities' (harbour managers and suchlike) wind their necks in.

    South Wales has some world-class mountain bike trails. Check-out the Afan Forest for a start.

    Seems like a lot of those trails would be made so much easier if riding on one of those 'ow much! electrified mountain bikes!

    Why do you think they're so popular?

    Did you think I was too cryptic for @Wibble ?

    I did wonder if I ought to elaborate, given the target audience.

    What were you doing on that stop?

    Is there something that you want to share perhaps?

    Been a busy week.

    Strange times. Time for a change. Now is the time to go backwards in order to move forwards.

    Have finally joined the ranks of the silent world. My chosen tool, a Revo. Never dived, such fun awaits.

    MOD1 booked for next month. Endless hours of practice to follow. But at least it’s warm.

    Not busy as limited to 50 divers. You need to be a diverlog member. Vis was ok but not great , was hoping for awesome but plenty of growth in there.

    air fills only but I got O2 so happy enough.
