The Final round of the Retrobike National Series will treat you to about 20 miles of the sweetest natural singletrack you will find in the UK.:: NO HELMET, NO RIDE :: Route:
Will mainly consist of local singletrack riding off the beaten track and none of this trail centre business. We will head off with a longer morning session under the guidance of our very own Forest of Dean Guides. There will of course be a break for a pub lunch before a shorter loop in the afternoon.PLEASE NOTE*
Due to the nature of the terrain and not intending on losing anyone we will be splitting into groups. Therefore it is vital that everyone who is coming makes their intentions known so we can be organized for your arrival.PLEASE SIGN UP ON THIS THREAD.:: Directions:
