How about a meet at Thetford? Jan 25th, meet at Brandon Country Park Visitor Centre 10:30am

Looks like we have a fixture, address for those who may need it is:

Brandon Country Park Visitor Centre
Bury Road
Brandon
Suffolk
IP27 0SU

Map of way-marked cycle routes .pdf file
http://www.forestry.gov.uk/website/pdf.nsf/pdf/thetford-bike-map.pdf/$FILE/thetford-bike-map.pdf

I hope we can get some new faces at this meet, Thetford Forest offers some excellent singletrack, the red & black routes (don't be worried about the grading the singletrack is only tricky at very fast speeds) are the staple diet but there is plenty more unmaped singletrack to discover. We usually stop for lunch half way through so that Cannondale King can refill the tanks and gorge himself.

If Brandon seems too hard get to, it is just over 2 hours, 95 miles, from J1 of the M6. Just over 2 hours, 87 miles, from J1 of the A1. 2 hours, 87 miles, from Lincoln (All according to AA route planner)
