Despite having started a cold I am up for it. Are we going to re-recce the national meet route? Would be best if a few of us know it as well.

Have tested the usual suspects to see if they are coming.

Blatant copy and paste ...

Usual spot for 10:30am

Location:
Brandon Country Park Visitor Centre
Bury Road
Brandon
Suffolk
IP27 0SU

Map here: http://bit.ly/hKwdX7

Details:
Parking is now Pay & Display, there is extra parking in the Orchard car park behind the old peoples home. There is a very good cafe - opens at 10:00am for the early arrivals - that sells tea / coffee & cakes also hot meals.

If you are worried about not being fit enough to come along it is not a problem, we have riders of all abilities turn up, from overweight '40+' blokes like me to XC race whipetts. No one is ever left behind. Thetford Forest has a mixture of fire road and twisty singletrack, the conditions are generally very good this time of year and the trails only become sticky after days of heavy rain. Looking forward to seeing you all. Retro bikes not compulsary if you only have a modern bike to ride. Any questions just send me a pm

A very good days riding. We did the Brandon route in the morning and Red Route in the afternoon. Data here for those that like such things.

Thank you to Mike & Lewis for coming along.

Have looked up the husky dog racing sites and it looks like the next event is on Feb 5th & 6th so we are OK



We noticed that some of the rides had recently been mown for sled dog racing.
