Brighton Big Dog 2016

Don't forget the Brighton Big Dog next Saturday - 13th August. This is a first rate mountain bike event, and if you've never been, then you really should try and get along to Stanmer Park, just off the A27 near Falmer.

It's a massive mountain bike festival, with lots going on all day. The main adult race starts at noon, and runs until 6pm. There is also a legendary after-party if you've been either brave enough or stupid enough to ride it!

Stanmer Park is open to the public, so access for spectators is free. The route is clearly marked, so just be sure to stay off the track.

Definitely worth a visit if you're a Big Dog virgin.

24th Annual Burgess Hill Bike Ride

This year's event takes place on Sunday 5th June, starting between 9am and 10am from the car park of Oakmeeds Community College in Burgess Hill.

Again this year it is being organised by Burgess Hill's Lions and Rotary Clubs with all profits going to the Sussex Cancer Fund and other local charitable projects. Once more they are offering a choice of three circular routes of 10, 20 and 40 miles. All routes start and finish at Oakmeeds and will travel through the beautiful Sussex countryside.

The price of entry to the event is the same as last year for adults (£15) and children between 10 and 15 (£5). BHBR are reintroducing sponsorship by entrants and will be very grateful for any money that you are able to raise. Free T-shirts will be available to advance entrants, subject to availability. A sponsorship form will be sent with the packs for advance entrants.

With the sad news earlier this year of the death of Burgess Hill Bike Ride founder Malcolm Stephens, this year's ride will be an emotional one for many of the ride's regular entrants, and we here at XbikeX hope very much that there is an even larger and more enthusiastic turnout than usual in Malcolm's memory, and that a record amount of money is raised for charity.

That would surely be a fitting tribute to the man who gave us such an impressive red-letter day in the town calendar.

Application forms can be downloaded from the BHBR website: www.burgesshillbikeride.co.uk

XbikeX rider Ben on hols!

My son has just got back from a rather extreme mountain bike holiday in the Alps. Let's just say that he returned slightly less broken than his bike, which was in need of more than a few new parts, and an awful lot of spanner-time.

His trusty Lapierre Zesty 714 did perform pretty well - with only superficial (if wide-ranging) damage - but then that's what you expect when you repeatedly throw one off a mountain.
