    Slack !

    Well... slack in terms of keeping this thing updated, anyhow.

    A lot has happened since end of April, but it's flown by and now, all of a sudden, I'm leaving Basel for 10 weeks at 5am tomorrow.

    The has been another weekend in the Maritime Alps (17th - 20th May, ascension), including some more good stuff in the Vesubie Valley. Best trail was the fantastic section of the GR 510 from Col de la Porte down into le Suquet. Just fantastic. The GR510 down into Suquet from the GR5 junction (Brec d'Utelle) was also good but extremely technical. Mont Ferion above Levens, was a bit disappointing.

    The weekend after, we were in London for Chloe's christening so I took the opportunity to get up very early Saturday and head down to the Surrey Hills with Gary Smith. We met up with a few others at Dorking, and by the time we stopped for food at Peaslake, it was rather a full group of CF lads. First time down there for me ... really fun trails considering the size of the hills.

    10th June, I took Christoph to the Vosges and showed him Thanner Hubel (Desperado) as well as the two main trails off the top of the Molkenrain. He seemed to enjoy it - I certainly did.

    May and June have also featured some more Chrischona riding (although not loads) and one really cool visit to Magglingen where Christoph showed me the new "Technischer" :-)
