So it's back to Haldon Forest, near Exeter, for a SW Retro Ride on Sunday 12th February. As Ajantom did such a good job on leading the last two rides we'll be following him again! There's only one carpark for those who got lost on the last ride!!! :lol:

Does anyone want to squeeze in a Dartmoor ride a couple of weeks later on Sunday 26th? I was thinking either Hameldown from Hound Tor or something towards Lustleigh from Haytor.

Here's a linky to Januarys Woodbury ride >>>

Here's a linky to the last time we rode at Haldon in December >>>

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=168203



The rides for the following months March - June are looking like being:

1. Onza100's Plymouth ride >>>

2. Onza100's Dorset coast ride.

3. Minehead - we last rode in 2009 >>>

4. ...and Burrington Coombe, Somerset.

(not in any order ^^^)

Might be up for Haldon this time :-) Managed to sprain my ankle in the USA, so will see how that holds up first.

I should be okay for that date. Tell me what is the course like up there. I used to ride on the other side by the obelisk years back, and have not been on the ready made trails since they were built.

Well, as last time it will be a mixture of way-marked and off-piste trails. The official stuff is pretty good, fast rolling and good fun......and all the other stuff is pretty good too :wink:

As usual I will see how things go at work on the morning of the ride.

Dry as a bone up there today :-) lovely fast conditions.

Did 16.7 miles starting down at the Ley Arms in Kenn, so got to finish the ride with the South West's best piece of singletrack - St Andrew's Lane 8)

I got a GPS from my sister for Xmas and used it for the first time today - 2300 ft/700 meters of climbing - no wonder I was knackered!
