Sunday 23rd October Day away down swinley

Post  woody1200 on 2011-09-13, 08:45

hi all i will be doing away ride down Look out in swinley forest on the sunday the 23 October @ 10 am
car parking is free
ride pement is 2.00
just for thos of us that have not done this ride..
Swinley Forest is an area of Windsor Forest, owned and managed by The Crown Estate, comprising of 2600 acres of mainly Scots Pine woodland. It is located between Bracknell and Bagshot to the west of the A322. Cycling is permitted on hard tracks and within a specific expert mountain bike area. The wide variety of trails is suitable for everyone from families to cross country riders, freeriders and downhillers.

It is a condition of cycling within Swinley Forest that you must hold a cycle permit if over 16 years of age. Children who are under 16 do not require a permit as they are deemed to be their parents or guardians responsibility whilst riding in the Forest.

As times are changing, it's now essential to comply with the requirements of Natural England, whose powers are far reaching, by showing that cyclists can act as a responsible cohesive group to enjoy all the benefits Swinley Forest has to offer.

Swinley Forest Map

The area available for riding is approximately 2600 acres with many miles of tracks. The forest map shows the boundaries of the areas available to ride. If you are not familiar with the land it is recommended that you purchase this full colour detailed map from The Discovery Centre. The purpose built singletrack trails within the Expert Mountain Bike Area are not marked so find a likely looking track and ride it. Just be aware that there maybe oncoming cyclists.
for more info go to Gorrick. com
Map of the Place is http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?x=487635&y=166097&z=120&sv=487635,166097&st=4&ar=y&mapp=map.srf&searchp=ids.srf&dn=625&ax=487635&ay=166097&lm=0

Hi Woody, I've changed the title of the topic to Sunday 23rd as there was a little confusion.

I will be coming on sunday, looking forward to riding Swinley, it's great Smile
