Ok - Windsurfing it isn't. This is the mountain bikers splinter group for when the wind don't blow!

Cleeve Common tomorrow, Sun 17th

Post by MartinF » Sat Apr 16, 2011 14:18

This is the ride we planned to do last week but didn't due to the HONC. So tommorrow, how about doing a BNONC (Bristol Nomads of North Cotswolds)?

Nigel can't make it due to being struck half-dead with a virus. I believe Adrian may be interested. If anyone else would like to join, I'd propose meeting along Station Road in Andoversford (see attached map) at 10:00. Give me a call on 0h 7 8 one 3 six oh 4 2 four 8.

...for Andoversford, read Bracknell.

In a sudden fixture change, we now plan to get to the car park at Swinley Forest by about 10:30.

Excellent day in Swinley Forest with Adrian yesterday - warm, dry, and dusty. Very dusty/sandy in parts. Thanks for the trail guiding.

Spent 10 mins or so watching a group of 7-10 year olds sessioning jump gulley. If only I could ever do the things they were doing... ((:-X

There are a number of new and/or newly re-laid trails with some fantastic berms.

The only damage sustained was to the car :(

An excellent ride with Martin - managed to pack the day with good bits without Rob's assistance :lol:

Trails facntastic especially a newly laid section which leads into the bit that goes to the wooden bridge - now a fantastic twisty long bermy section :lol:

Martin was in good form but perhaps a bit ambitious in attempting to jump my wall in his car :cry:
