Time - 10.00am for 10.30 start.

Start & Parking - Meet in Sherwood Pines car park which is shown on the map below. (Post code for car park is NG21 9JL)
Parking cost a very reasonable £3 last time we visited but could well have gone up since then so please have change.

Distance - 11-12 miles in the morning then a nice leisurely lunch at the cafe then the same again in the afternoon.

Terrain - Sherwood Pines red route, singletrack!

Difficulty - 3/5 - Nothing too strenuous with a few nice technical sections, perfect for rigid and singlespeed retrobikes.

One of favourite rides of 2010/11 Sherwood Pines is a man made trail centre full of fast flowing singletrack through the beautiful pine forest. Facilities are excellent with ample parking, a great cafe, toilets and a bike shop all on site. I planned two loops of the red route which starts and finishes at the cafe area so we can have lunch in between.

Hope to see as many as possible of you there,

Chris.

Date changed to the 19th to avoid clashing with the North East groups Harwood ride.

Sorry Andy but I cant move it much farther back as it will clash with the next National and will be nearly into June.

If I do go, I don't mind driving down. Might bring the family, don't forget to tell the Midlands lots.
