I am happy to host a 20 miler in the North Wessex Downs near M4 J16/15 (Swindon) I have loads of free parking at the trail start:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Croft ... 4d-1.77779

And from there we head south to Avebury - would get in approx 1500 feet and take 2-3 hours

Date wise lets go for a Sunday in May 2019 with a 10 am start

Ride Rules - bikes must be fully rigid or at worst have a flex stem or very short travel (50mm).

Area we are riding is the North Wessex Downs ANOB and I know where the Polisher Stone is - so we can get photos there too!

The trails are clay and Flint so I will carry a spare tire just in case....

Comment if you are interested.

Vague registering of interest, with the proviso that I'll probably not make it (both kids have birthdays in May...)

So F

I think you’ll be safe ^^ even with fresh elastomers mine have less than 40mm travel.

I get the impression Judy’s and Bombers are out as that’s where suspension started to get real



I’m in
