We in the East Midlands region would like to introduce you to the joys of night riding.

You are invited to a night ride on Saturday 10th December at 4pm, aiming to start the ride around 5pm.

The ride will last around a couple of hours and take in such delights as the Tunnel of Love, XP Valley and the Half Pipe, Black Were Rabbit Hill, Treacle Hill, Jaguar Woods, the Badger Hole and the Tractor, etc.

The terrain is gentle but with enough to keep you on your toes and have some fun :shock: :D

This ride will suit people of all abilities and the pace will not be fast.

As a special treat we do have among us spare front lights sufficient for 3 or 4 people who may not have one of their own. A red rear is recommended as there are short road sections, however in the middle of the pack you might be all right.

Meet at Ticknall village hall car park in Southern Derbyshire here. There is plenty of free parking either in the car park or on the road leading to it.

After the ride we'll be stopping at one of the local pubs for a pint (food isn't served there unfortunately, although other pubs locally do if you prefer).

If you have never ridden at night, you don't know what you've been missing! This is the perfect opportunity to try it out in the relative safety of a group. Please join us for this winter treat :D

Taster videos of XP valley half pipe here and here. (Ignore the heavy breathing :oops: :lol: )

I'm in and have a route cunningly contrived to deliver Ed's wild promises.
