It's not officially Summer yet, but it definitely feels like it. Ebike rides after work in the sunshine and filming some clips with the boys is dream living if you ask me. We've had a nice dry spell here in the UK as we head towards Summer - dry and loose along with some prime loam conditions all over I would imagine, but especially in the North West. I'm not biased or anything. Big up the local riding scene, aka The Firm. Caution - some cursing/language in the video.

Dave Thorne. He usually turns up to filming and then gets the wildest clips.

 Tea & Biscuits, Slice of British Pie and all his clips. This is so much fun to watch as I remember my own riding and good times with the mates. Tommy, your films capture an essences to MTB. Just laughter, sharing time and shredding bikes.

As I get older and life starts to be more complicated I will fondly remember and try to have more of these types of moments.

Thanks again Tom & Co.

As a one time soil science student I’ve been trying to tell my mates for years that they’re talking bollocks and this isn’t loam at all.
