Forest trails, mainly sweet fireroad singletrack, the vast majority of it natural. While not flat, the route planned is not super up or down. Although parts of the Forest are extremely well drained, conditions can be a little muddy in places if it has been raining hard. So, tyre choice? Doesn't really matter as long as amber walled.
That would be telling!
:: Flea Market:
There was a really good, impromptu one at Cannock with top quality items at knock down prices plus tons of karma. Feel free to bring stuff along for pre-ride bartering.
:: No helmet, no ride!
We've had the best part of 40 riders in the previous rounds at Thetford and Cannock - sign up now!
