10am for a 10:30am start.:: Meeting at:
Car Park opposite Bridges pub SY5 0SP Grid ref: SO 39327 96433http://www.bing.com/maps/#JnE9LnN5NSUyY ... DguMDI5Mzg
If you were at last year's Mynd ride THIS IS A DIFFERENT MEETING POINT.
There is no car park charge. :: Terrain:
A bit of everything including a long road climb to start the day. Sorry. Open exposed moorland, the key word being EXPOSED.
Not particularly rocky, very retro-rigid friendly, long descents more than pay back the effort of the climbs.
|Like it says above, this is a fairly exposed ride, so be prepared.|:: NO HELMET, NO RIDE :: Route:
This is a different route from last year, a figure of eight centred on the pub at Bridges. Total distance for the day is approx 20 miles split about 11/9 am/pm. Lunch at Bridges by popular demand. Pre-ordering is essential and a menu will be posted two weeks before the ride. :: Directions:
As stated above. The car-park is opposite the pub.:: Accommodation:
Bridges has accommodation, and there is a Youth Hostel 3 minutes walk away.
