Yes I enjoyed the Bakewell EB event and location too with some good trails as well as roads, riding my Grandis. Goodwood isn't the easiest place to get to agreed. Interesting to see if they apply the rules or "laissez-faire" prevails. The addition of the race circuit might appeal to some.Funnily enough, I've just had a reminder from Google photos of the previous times we did EB.
Bakewell was a great location as the trails were lovely limestoney and varied, plus it was centrally located in the UK (and luckily close-by for family to pop along). Shame it's now going to be at the far end of the country.
It was starting to lose its "friendly" nature I felt so maybe it's gone to the best place!
