The car park is half way up the mainstreet on the left. NOT either of the countrypark carparks which demand money and are too far from the pub.

Pete:

Long Mynd Route: www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php ... start=2670

Travel in an anticlockwise direction on the blue/green route until lunch and then on the purple route after lunch. Ignore the yellow (history).

I'll post up a meeting point later this week. We used a carpark in the centre of Church Stretton last time, £3.00 for the day as I recall.

The BEST Charnwood ride yet.. Beacon Hill was so good we climbed it twice.
Definitely a summer late evening ride.

picked up a 1993 pine mountain tonight
what is it about fellow bikers ??
I could have spent all night chatting to the bloke what a great guy I think his love lied squarely with a rather nice colnago carbon roadbike tho ...cant understand it meself nothing beats a face full of mud and the agony of a climb for the reward of a scant few seconds of dreamy descent.
Its a nice bike i will service it and embrace the spirit of non suspension
put the Dale in the shed and live a little. :D

Had a great ride at the Pines last night. It's dry and swoopy at the moment but a little bit scary in the mist!

If people are up for a night ride there then I'm happy to organise somthing. We talked about a Friday evening...any takers?

How about a Pines ride next Tuesday Mat ? But please make it gentle 'cos we have Long Mynd on Thursday and a quick recovery is no longer an option for some of us (well me actually).
