  • Anyone ridden the Thursday evening night rides organised by Heales?

  • No, but they're an alright bunch, I've ridden with them before.

    It's boggy out there today BTW.

  • Would concur, off the main tracks it's very boggy. Need to get some mudguards.

    On the plus side it's stunning out there at the mo with the autumn colours.

  • rode from walthamstow up to pole hill yesterday and turned around even though I'd planned for more because of a massive sense of humour failure from the utter slop it all was and the swathes of people out (my fault, sunday late morning).

    anyone know if it's any more rideable further into the forest?

  • The lower section does tend to bog down a little sooner, and while there are sections further up that handle the winter better, you're unlikely to get to them without encountering bog

    From what I read, it was very busy there yesterday

  • The approach from the golf course is always friendlier in winter, the bottom of the hill towards the West is a proper no-go zone

  • utter slop it all was and the swathes of people out (my fault, sunday late morning).

    I was also there yesterday. Whipps Cross to Highams Park direction. Cycled back via the road as I couldn't face any more mud.

  • I'll give it another go next weekend then, but I'll be riding up the canal and going early morning. Hopefully it'll be palatable.

    If not I'll bite the bullet and buy a bmx to fuck around (read: break myself) on the local pump track.

  • It'll be better late spring.

  • Yeah not too long now!

  • Wait

  • The highams park bit is particularly bad but if you skip that on the road and get back into it from chingford lane towards Whitehall plain it’s fine all the way into the forest
