Raywell to Beverley


This route is still nice and ridable, it easy and has food in Beverley and at the start (start is not cheap and no breakfast*)

I grade it as easy, mostly off road, probably going to have some good slippery mud fun on some parts of the trails to.

It's not exciting, high altitude, rocky. But is a pleasant ride


So anyone that's not been out for a while or not so fit then this should be ok for you. I don't remember any steep hills, just gentle slopes and I only road it about a week ago.

Ride is on !

But thinking 9:00 for 9:30ish start @ Raywell


Locations
A should be food <food cancelled due to not being open :( >
B should be start, just at the bottom on the bend you will see cars parked either side. That's the place

Thes is the start gate, though without the snow

Mud will probably be a little like this if it's held the recent rain.

I reckon I'm ok for this but would prefer a 9.00 meet for 9.30 start.

I assume this has the extra bit tagged on Ben? Not looked at the route map yet.

If we ride at the pace Ben and I did last week we should be round pretty quickly but I'm sure there will be a few more chat stops.

I'm in! Really looking forward to it and it fits in well as I'm away the next few weekends after this one.
