much provisional. very commit
Give me a date on any given Sunday and I'll do my best to be there.
Date now added.
Train timetable for the day.
A couple of tiny adjustments, but this should be the route.
Quick bump for this, as it's only a week away.
Ok, the list of attendees for this ride is:
Two of you ( Tom & Justin ) live far enough away for there to be little chance of you being able to make it. The other two, I've never met, so please speak up if you're able/unable to come this time, otherwise I might just reschedule this for when the weather's playing nice :-)
Yeah, it's about £25 to get over to Watton so that may not happen
Right, going to save this for another time.
Will be going to Epping Forest on Saturday, should anyone fancy an alternative.
Sorry man. I thought the train journey would not be as much as six hours and £52.
I'm going to meet up with you for a ride sometime, just have to time it when you and I are both around in London. Or you come to Swansea and ride here. You can crash at mine if you ever do come.
Hardly worth that time and effort when you have better trails on your doorstep :-)
Thanks for the offer! Would genuinely like to do some riding around there again, even if I do have to walk up all the hills...
Coming soon ( late April/early May ).
Each route from this book has short-cuts and extensions.
Main route: 18.8 miles ( 325 metres of climbing )
Short-cut: - 12 miles
Extensions: +3.5 & +2 miles
This ride uses mostly non-technical, easy-to-follow trails, which never stray too far from civilisation ( or pubs ). There isn't too much climbing and none of it is very steep, and there are plenty of bail-out options in the form of country roads if needed, so overall it is suitable for anyone who isn't looking for a hard, technical ride.
The trails in this part of the country aren't very technical, so it won't be a surprise that this route isn't very technical, but it isn't dull either.
A lot of well draining doubletracks, but also a few that can suffer from vehicle use after wet weather. There aren't any long, difficult climbs, but enough to get your lungs working.
