Good to see your back in the saddle Alister. I remember you. Partly 'cos you’re quite local to me, but mostly because I was jealous of how quickly you got good at wheel walking, one minute you were nervously jumping on a tree stump at Cragside, the next you were wheel walking a skinny.
I’m sure those that placed below you in the Beginners Trials competition at Middlesborough remembers your name too.
So knowing how good you were getting I felt really bad for you when you broke your leg. Have you been back to conquer the hill yet?
haha this message made me smile!
I tried that skinny wheelwalk again earlier, failed miserably although i’m sure i’ll get it again soon!
I have not been anywhere near that hill since i broke my leg, it’s kind of a massive mental barrier, but also im not at the skill level i was beforehand I’ll definitely still try and muni, but I think i’ll leave it for a long time!
thanks for remembering, you’re from gateshead right? (:
Yeah, but I got out of Gateshead town at the end of last year (thank God) and moved over to Blaydon.
It’s a little closer to my favourite muni area, Chopwell Woods. If you do go back to muni, it’s a good place to start. There’s room to use a good range of skills there: Lots of skinny paths, some nice rooty downhill lines and even some northshore trials stuff.
