Retrobike National Event Series: Forest of Dean Saturday 14th May 2011 with support from Image

:: Date: Saturday 14th May 2011

:: Distance/time: A full day's riding with plenty of fuel stops and banter. Split into three hours in the morning, a pub stop for lunch then another 90 minutes or so afterwards. Please arrive by 10 a.m. for a 10.30 a.m. start.

:: Meeting at: Pedalabikeaway Cycle Centre, near Coleford. There is a Pay and Display carpark, £3 for the day.

:: Directions: Postcode: OS Grid Reference: SO 624 114. Post Code for Sat Nav is GL16 7EH but check the map as this may put you in the centre of Coleford or at the cottages down the road! http://www.pedalabikeaway.co.uk/findus.html Cycle centre telephone: 01594 860065

:: Terrain: Forest trails, mainly sweet fireroad singletrack, the vast majority of it natural. While not flat, the route planned is not super up or down. Although parts of the Forest are extremely well drained, conditions can be a little muddy in places if it has been raining hard. So, tyre choice? Doesn't really matter as long as amber walled.

:: Route: That would be telling!

:: Flea Market: There was a really good, impromptu one at Cannock with top quality items at knock down prices plus tons of karma. Feel free to bring stuff along for pre-ride bartering.

:: No helmet, no ride!

Gone on then, you've twisted my arm. Put my name down. The postcode above points to the Pedalbikeaway centre.

It's a week after my annual Colne Valley MTB Challenge, 30 challenging miles around Huddersfield and the surrounding moors, so provided I survive that I'll be there!
