I'm looking forward to a group ride as well. Haven't been to the Pines for a while.
Can't wait to ride the long single track bridleway from Ticknall that runs down through the small wood , on a cold, clear night.
Cherrybomb: what part of Shropshire are you from?
Ed, Mat, everyone: Is the Long Mynd too far for a group day out?
I'm based in Shrewsbury (at the weekend only these days) but used to live right under the Long Mynd. In the summer I'd be out bustin' lungs three or four times a week.
That photo brought a tear to the eye.
As for a weekend ride. It takes me about 2 1/4 hours to get to Shrewsbury from Grantham if that's any help. It's a bit of an arse of a journey, some Muppet built Nottingham in the way!
