Hi everyone.

Just to confirm that there is an official Club Ride at Thetford planned this weekend.

There is plenty of singletrack to be had and trails including Hails Run that can be had....
I will be there so hopefully there will be other takers.

Meet point is at the Brandon visitors centre and there is a cafe there for food & drink!
10 am usual start time:
Cheers!

I'll be there puffing and panting as always.

Question 10am start pale With a 2 hour drive from MK some may prefer a slightly later start though Mr Posty. Not me of course I'm up for a 9 start. Honest. Laughing

10 am start is good making it later means you get stuck in traffic traveling there


Is Brandon visitor centre the main centre?

Brandon visitors centre is the main one! The riding is very good and 2 hours will be plenty good for some thrills/spills.

High Lodge is the main one - but Brandon CP is signposted from Brandon (strangely!)

BTW did you know you have to pay to park at Brandon now? - about £2 or £3 (but cheaper than all day at High Lodge which is £9.60!)

Can't make this one I'm afraid as I can't see my mum saying "no darling I don't want you to spend time with me and cook me dinner, you go off and have fun with your friends instead!".

I shall squeeze in a couple of hours up the woods first though! Wink

Thetford and Brandon are the nearest towns or villages.


Thetford Forest Park is located on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk in the heart of Breckland in East Anglia.

Major roads leading to Thetford Forest Park are the M11 from London, the A11 from Norwich or Newmarket and the A14 from Cambridge or Ipswich.

I've got a customer not far from there and it's easy to get to from MK. Should be an easy run on a Sunday morning.

Just watch for the speed camera vans on the dual carriageways around Cambridgeshire Evil or Very Mad

Also, parking aint cheap there. I think it was about 7 quid for the day Shocked

Wish I was coming, but it's Mother's Day clown

Now I am tired. Thetford is pretty flat which translates to 4 hours of constant pedalling.
