Location: Stow on the Wold, Glos
Date: Sunday 12th May 2013

Time: 10.00 a.m. for a prompt 10:30 a.m. start

Ride: Thrash and trash around the Verderers trail

Distance: As far as your scrap heap challenge carries you

Start and finish: Forest of Dean trail Centre

Post Ride Grub: Forest of Dean trail centre cafe

Height gain: Enough to stretch the legs with 60lb of rubbish

What is the ride like? thats depends on how well you spend your £25

What bike set up? ha,ha Anything goes!

Scrap yard challenge rules

1. buying period April 1st to 30th
2. Budget £25 excluding p&p
3. All purchases must be able to be validated through ebay links
4.There is a strict point system which includes deductions for
-post-97 bikes
-heavy points for going over £25
-replacement parts
-Break downs on the ride

Dont forget its all just for fun so dont want to get heavy on the in and outs of rules and hopefully be passing the bikes onto charity afterwards 8)

So who is in then?
