I'll try and bring an extra saracen if needed.
Is the unmarked bit with the steped bit and jumps at the bottom still there? Had fun down that before!

I'm gutted I missed the Plymouth ride... it looked a great route.

Yep, still there and more! Jimbo-xc and Ajantom are the Haldon experts - I'm sure they'll include it! :wink:

Yes, it's still on. Do you need a lift again? The Plymouth ride was a good day out thanks to Onza100.

A lift, yes please mate...
Not been out on the Clockwork since Bristol, spent too much time on the road bike (your old one!) and the new mtb...

I had better test out the new jockey wheels.....and loctite!

Looking forward to this one, hopefully we'll get a good turnout.

Went out for a recce yesterday. It's surprisingly dry up there, one or two sticky bits on the off-piste stuff, but mostly nice fast conditions.

We might start off with a bit of the blue run as a warm up, that leads onto a nice off-piste section, then along the fire road to the stepped bit with jumps that Onza100 mentions. Back up to the car park via the blue run again, and then take a trip around the red run, with a little diversion up past the quarry if there's time.

Not sure which bike yet - Saracen or Yeti.....hmmmm?

:wink:
