Just starting a thready for another SW Retro ride!

Hopefully the weather will be better this time :facepalm:

I've spoken to a couple of other members and the 17th July is looking good for us so far. So, Woodbury Common or Haldon?

I'll be pm'ing alot of of the SW riders over the next day or two so hopefully we'll get a good turnout :D

Count me in! Woodbury would be cool as it's 5 mins from my house, but not fussed with either Haldon or woodbury.

I'm easy, both are great really... however, from a purely retro point of view, Woodbury means more to me as I raced there god knows how many times.

Having said that, it is a killer on the bikes cos of the gritty terrain.
Also there is the added excitement / danger of being shot by Royal Marines on exercises...lol!
Haldon is perhaps more accessible and rider friendly.
Either way I don't mind, all that matters is a good turn out and good weather.

See you all there!

It's weird but Haldon just keeps popping up in conversations with me about excellent forest trails.

I'd like to get to know Woodbury better as I just meander and get lost (as I did yesterday in the rain) so would prefer that or somewhere else over Haldon.

Hope I can make this one.

Woodbury gets my vote as I used to ride & race there all the time in mid 90's but hardly ever do now. Then again, Haldon is fine! Quantocks or Exmoor might be good alternatives.
Bike jumble too I hope!

I know a nice route on Dartmoor from Hound Tor, to Jay's Grave, Hamel Down, Widecombe and back to Jay's Grave followed by an extra bit on the end if anyone wants to do that instead? :D

Is hound tor near Hay Tor? I run the Hay Tor once a year (not fun!)
This sounds like an interesting alternative.
