Only three weeks away but anyone up for a mini meet in the Cotswolds on May Bank Holiday?

All the riding round here is good old fashioned natural trails, lots of ups and downs and technical climbs and descents to keep everyone happy.

Lots of great trailside pubs aswell :)

Will post times and places according to how many want to come.

Sheesh. If I can make it I'll be there. What are your thoughts for route Russ? Nice loop out over Lecky towards Cranham? Or Cleeve?

Dunno, I'm loving Lecky at the moment. The local spade brigade have opened up some new trails but its very much steep climb, technical descent, steep climb, technical descent... repeat ad nauseam!

Cleeve is good old classic swooping trails and open views.

I was thinking of getting the maps out and trying to piece together a route that takes them both in from a centralish car park.

Depends who turns up, if its just me you and Heathy, we'll play it by ear :)

Hi there,

I live in Leckhampton and would be interested in coming along for a bit of a spin over the bank holiday if I am around. Have you any firm plans yet? I am fairly new to these parts so will have to bow to your better local knowledge for trails.
