Updated Ride / meeting info 19/03/2012

:: Meeting place will be Clifton Down, There is a map below with red oval section highlighted for appx free parking , Also a smiley face for the suspension bridge (which you cant miss) :lol: We will be appx 5 mins away from AC & LW. I will be at parking area for around 09:15 and would suggest getting there before 10 for a 10:15 depart to the the suspension bridge and over to Ashton Court...

:: Ride will be as long as you want :) a single loop of Ashton Court and Leighwoods will take around 1.5rhs going by previous RB ride. Pace will be as slow as the slowest and will stop at all crossroads / sections. I will be there all day and will go round as many times as needed. (the Leigh Woods is so go I usually go round 3 times :wink: ) The beauty of this location is that its a large loop and you are never far from your cars

If anyone needs my number or assistace please PM me

Google maps link HERE and a street view pic 8) HERE Nearest Postcode for sat nav is BS8 3NE

I'm going to ask the same question I did on the other SW ride thread.

How hard core are you guys?

I did a couple of hours in the Mendips this morning, and it's been a loooong time since I was offroad. I had a great time (recce for a possible Mendips meet), but MAN! am I unfit.

If you guys do a lot if climbing, then I'll dip out this time and work on my stamina for the next time.

Neil, check my post above, it's not a race and we will go as fast as the slowest and will always stop at rest places or end of runs, if anyone wants to let some some steam off they can go in front or go round again for round 2 or 3 :D

There is no climbing at AC or LW that is worth writing home about :wink: just nice flowing single track and some technical sections for those that want it which is usually a yes 8)

Look forward in seeing you there

Cheers

GM. 8)

In that case "I'm your huckleberry, that's just my game".

Let me know where and when.
