A singletrack based (with firetrail) ride taking in many of the hills around the North Downs. The trails are loamy and challenging in places but retrobike friendly, quite a few short ups rewarded by flowing singletrack. Taking in some of the big named trails such as 'Barry Knows Best', 'T1' and 'T2'...
Short in distance but don't be fooled, some willing legs will help you get the best from this ride. Food stop is around the 2/3 point so please make sure you have enough provisions to see you through. If you ride gears make sure you have enough of them and that they work please, & if you only run one gear, make sure it's a suitable one!
There will be a lunch stop at the Volunteer Pub - We have been told that they have shut it especially for us. A pre-order menu will be going up shortly - more details to follow:: Accomodation:

We're consistently getting nearly 50 riders for this little event, it would be great to keep it that way...
