Some great riding round the Quantocks, I've ridden some great routes there with 'Sticklegs' who sadly no longer rides.

Might join you lot, date (and new 'retro' build) permitting.

I'd probably be up for the 2nd. Should be able to get one of the suspensions working by then, otherwise is a rigid OK?

I will be taking a full rigid. Certain tracks can shake your bones a bit but other that it's fine. :D

i'd been looking for someone to sort a ride down that way a while ago but it seemed no one knew the terrain riding wise and i'm to far away to get to know it.

i'd defo be up for a ride down there if someone knows a good route, pref with a stop for food etc. maybe 20ish miles?


Yep could do that

No to knock your ideas, but both of those are really quite posh.

The Plough at holford is muddy MTB rider friendly.

Not into parking at the tops of hills -- if you park at Holford you get to end the ride with a descent :)


And a pub :D

Shall we try and get a date sorted, starting at Holford at say 10am, ride and then late lunch afterwards??
