Will it be an all day ride or just a few hours?
As long as you want to make it really as I will going in circles and we cross plenty of A roads.
Excellent. I'll see if I can make it for a few hours at least (thumbs)

Mostly gravel with a few twin track bits thrown in. If it rains beforehand I will cancel but it seems unlikely so be prepared for dust. Bring water. Tyre choice is entirely up to you but racing slicks will make life hard. It is the last day Imber is open so we will go poke that with a stick along with Stonehenge. Image

Long range forecast is for rain Friday and Saturday !! I wont cancel at this stage but it looks a bit iffy now :angry: Wet chalk is not good on full knobblies let alone for the big bikes. Shed really don't bother if its wet as you will be stuck with the gravel access roads which are fine if that is what you want but get a bit boring. If you get OS landranger 184 I can mark it up for you but looks as though I will be trying again soon.

Same for me. Can't do this weekend but definitely up for another one when it's dry and dusty! Thanks for organising these Herman.

I am going to cancel methinks rather than folks changing plans last minute. Heavy rain forecast for Friday and a warning for Saturday! :( I will post up another date soon.

Hi all I'm going to heading out on the plain on Sunday regardless off the weather so if anyone is still planning on going I'm happy to lead.
