Kitmech - get there early and I think as you approach the car park entrance, there is a smaller parking area on the opposite side of the road with no height restriction. I think a standard van would fit under the main car park barrier but perhaps not a high top. Roof mounted bike racks are certainly too tall. The strike marks on the barrier bear witness to this....

If we are meeting at the car park I think it is your link is to the wrong place. You have us turning off of Leith Hill Road and taking a track on the left.
Coming from Ockley I believe you need to continue up the hill and the car park is on the right. If you have a tall vehicle there is very limited parking just before the carpark entrance on the left

Agree - but that is the one linked on the first page (but not the GR quoted in the first post) - I couldn't get gigglemaps to show the point I wanted.

I'll pull the re-posted incorrect link.

Now looking unlikely given we'd already booked a family holiday for that week. Shame.

Unless anyone can suggest how I might get from Scotland for the day.


Why not come along to the Repack Anniversary bash that MacRetro are hosting at Glentress on the friday evening then guv? Looks like a canny turnout and always a good craic with the Mac Lads.

Missed this (been under a pile of GT and Kona parts :lol: ) Anyway assuming I get a pass (which the wife should be fine with as it's Sunday and local) I will be there. Can't do pre '90 as I don't own any but will come on my '91 Sorcerer and Baz77 has said he should be able to attend on his immaculate '89 Sorcerer (to give it what must be it's first real ride ever).

Carl.
