We are going to have a little get-together at my local haunt (pun intended) of Chicksands - or Rowney Warren if you want to be picky about the place name.
Sunday 31st October
10:00 for a 10:30 start
this is the car park in Sandy Lane not the bike-park car park.
: Tea & Cake
at Rekis place (10 minute drive), apply for tickets for a guided tour of the man-cave in writing.
Chicksands has loads of fantastic fast sweepy singletrack, short steep hills, tight twisty bits, fast fire roady bits, and technical man-made bermed downhill bits. Then there is always the bike-park with it's 4X track, dual track, north shore, short course downhill tracks and the best bit which is the technical singletrack. For those of us who choose to ride with only one gear, Chicksands is very singlespeedable with some challenging climbs that require full-on power and commitment requiring plenty of use of body-english to search for grip.
Bike park website if you want to scare yourself: http://www.chicksandsbikepark.co.uk/
(we aim to do mostly the XC stuff)
There are normally no facilities at the site but a burger van sometimes shows up on weekends. Come prepared. We will aim to ride for a couple of hours but if it is anything like our ir-regular Thursday evening rides the total time will consist of 10mins riding and 1hr 50mins chatting.
Fancy dress optional but Cannondale King always does look a bit odd.
Any questions pm me (I am away from start October for a couple of weeks), cannondale king or average mark.
Screen caps below show one of our Thursday night rides. Not a good example as we spend more time chatting than riding but it will give you an idea of the area and terrain.
