At Home In The Loam

Loam. Steep Loam. Finding the steepest loam we can normally plays a large part of local rides in the woods especially when we are still waiting for the singletrack to dry out.

Got to get switchback practise in for an Alpine summer. This was the fourth attempt at this particular bit of trail.

Sadly, the ‘Slow-mo-footplant-scrub’ technique proved ineffective. 6 attempts at it and I only got round it once.
Cal quickly got fed up of such nonsense and we headed of to some of the dryer DH trails. He was pretty on it through the bus stops. On an unrelated note, when I wake up tomorrow it will be summer. Thank God
