Look for the person with the most hair and the oddest bike.

That will be me. :P

Having never been to Cannock before, could someone elaborate on what kind of trails we are likely to encounter?? Rigid friendly? Singlespeed-able? Distance? rocky, rooty, climbs??

A hilly Thetford.

Never been to Thetford?

A larger Chicksands.

Never been to Chicksands?

Short sharp hills, lots of twisty single track - I had fun on a Kona Chute last time I was there - and was mocked at every turn :P

I've not been since the upgrade to the routes, but it was easily rigid singlespeedable previously. Distance - anything up to 25 miles nowadays. Pebbly more than rocky. Some roots but not many. A few climbs. Rims will get mashed by the grinding paste and if last year is anything to go by there will be sheets of ice over the firetrails making for interesting riding :shock:

Firetrails and Interesting. Two words you don't often see in the same sentence. :lol:
