You might be familiar with the UK's resident hardtail hooner, Darren Evans.. but partner him with Ed Palmer (aka Grandma Bryceland from Slice of British Pie) and you've got a great combination of wilderness antics, hardtail hauling and as it turns out, fishing abilities. We packed our bags, threw the bikes in the van and headed to the Brecon Beacons in South Wales and onto the Forest of Dean district afterward for a bit of an adventure.

Darren and Ed, soggy but grinning after hauling down one of the biggest mountains in Wales in typical British rainfall, but still with dust on the ground. Also featuring Gordon the trail dog.

X-upping to flat, with no shirt on, with a tub of rhubarb yoghurt in his bottle cage. That's Darren Evans for you. Catch him at EWS rounds soon.

Campfire chills. caldwellvisuals
Campfire chills under the cover of some dense woods, and keeping the inferno fed to ward off swarms of midgies.

Darren dropped into a savage rocky gully leading into an incredible cave and mining network... shirtless.

Dropping into the caves. caldwellvisuals
How many trails do you know that drop into a cave?

Darren, lit by Ed, heading into the caves and hunting for subterranean rock gardens. Rear suspension? Nah.

Big thanks to Ed, Darren and Gordon, along with Stanton Bikes for making this adventure happen.
