TOPIC: Thursday 16th supper model ride

Thursday 16th supper model ride 2 years 6 months ago #1318

Mile and I meet at Bradly’s tea hut to start our super modelling career, Glen was there on his way home from work so we had a chat and tried to get him in on the gig but unfortunately he did not make the grade as a supermodel. Miles did a quick risk assessment on whether the bacon sandwiches would affect our long-term supper model careers while we waited for the camera crew to arrive. Once they had arrive we headed off into the forest and they asked us to stop and take some photos on the bridle, which was not the place a super model like miles wanted to be see, so we went deeper in to the forest towards Andy’s log taking photos as we went. After several runs down Andy’s log the wanted some photo of us pushing the bikes back up the logs with miles appropriately behind me, where he belongs. From there we then headed down the hill to the stream taking further shots as we went. As we walked back up with them they were taking more photos, but miles was concerned if his bum looked big in those shots. Once we got back to the car park we headed over to high beach for a second photo shoot. Where they filmed us sitting chatting and going up and down the hill a few times, and once again they knew miles place and wanted follow him behind me.

Glad you have such a clear memory of how it went on the day Baz. :woohoo:

Even for cash I wasn't prepared to smile on the bridleways!
Never cease to be amazed!

TT, you'll have to wait a week or so until they have met the client. They have promised to send us jpegs of the pics they took on the day so hopefully they got some good ones.

You see now why Baz was at the front, he provided all of the entertainment!
Never cease to be amazed!

The forest is full of hazards that can bring an end to your ride, so bring a mini pump, spare tube and multi-tool so we can all spend more time pedalling.

Essential

It's simple NO helmet, NO ride. Other than that you can wear whatever keeps you warm, dry and happy. But, be warned some days the forest can be extremely muddy.

About

MBRO35 (Mountain Bike Riders Over 35) are a social group of riders, not a club. As you may have guessed we are mostly over 35 years of age although some that ride are younger so don't let that put you off.

The group ride on a Saturday morning at 11am in Epping Forest which is to the North East of London. A lot of us have lived around and cycled in the forest for a good number of years and we are lucky to have some regular riders who know their way around the miles of singletrack very well. We ride all year round and usually get a pretty good turn out in all but the foulest weather. We are a sociable group and the emphasis is on enjoyment rather than speed or the mileage travelled. Having said that, the rides can be fairly quick at times and whilst we welcome riders of all abilities you will need a good level of fitness in order to keep up as well as a mechanically sound mountain bike. We ride mostly on the forest singletrack, the narrowness of the trails and exposed tree roots make for some challenging technical riding.

In addition to the regular Saturday rides we also do forest night rides on a Wednesday evening at 7pm as well as occasional away days or weekends. If you prefer your wheels on firmer ground, there is also a strong road contingent within the group that often rides out into the Essex and Hertfordshire countryside on a Saturday or Sunday. The road rides usually leave earlier in the day and head out via High Beech for trips of anything up to 70 miles. Most local rides are followed by a debrief in The Station House pub in Chingford where thanks to a very amiable Landlady we have a place to wash the bikes and store them in safety while we have a few beers and discuss the events of the day. You can also read about some of our most recent rides in the Ride Reports section on the forum.
