Valentines day ride at Wendover

Post  smegger on 2009-02-04, 02:32

Filthy habit and I are doing a ride at Wendover on 14th February starting at Wendover, for anyone who gets MBR it was featured a couple of months ago.

Its going to be starting about 09:30 and is 25 miles long, MBR rate it as hard , there's supposed to be some good singletrack intersperced with some country lanes, and it may be a bit claggy as its clay , there are several food places for the cappucino minded of the club and we're looking about 4-5 hours to complete it .

Just had a look on weather.co.uk and doesn't look to bad for the weekend, same on BBC sunny 4 degrees , not sure what the ground is going to be like,

I've just had a look on the sillygrin website and they say to start at Coombe, as there is a carpark there

Itinerary for ride

Post  smegger on 2009-02-12, 02:19

Right

Change of Plan , we're going to meet at 11 o'clock at Wendover station as its going to be an easier meeting point, and will be signposted and the MBR ride starts from there

List of people coming

Smegger
Filthy Habit
Fizz (possibly)
Woody
Speedy Daz
Laura
Caroline

I'm going to e-mail everyone a PDF of the route and where to meet, suggest you bring a change of clothes for afterwards and if anyone has walkie talkies to bring them along as they may be useful, plus any food and drink required( There is a Tesco extra and a Budgens in Wendover if anyone forgets anything)

See you there
