Mike, how may ride leaders you got? as ride 1 is upto 13 including you. I'm getting close to a limit as well.

would like to join in the fun on this one, not been before, always wanted to do a little explore round the place so the usual question- to do the tougher route on a 640A what kind of rubber might I need, I know the weather at the time will influence? would t63 type tyres be ok or will I need more bite? Thanks for putting this together Mike and whoever happy to join any trail type rideout really, also willing to do a tailend Charlie if need be if given a GPX track.
Will be heading back to S Wales after the meet aiming to do a few trails heading N to Gloucester then W if anybody would like to join. Looking forward to meeting all
Thanks Paul

Come along on the easy ride and any 70/30 tyre will do. But there are also bits alongside the easy ride for those who want to get dirty.

Hi Mike,

Long time no see.

Not sure if you saw in the ride section but unfortunately I won't make this year as the bike is being lovingly rebuilt as we speak...

Hope you have a blast! Will be there next year for sure.

Right then folks..here is some more info for you.

I am creating the GPX files for an easy and a harder ride and will add them here before the end of play Thursday.

The hard ride will cover some distance and you will gone for most of the day. There will be three stops for fuel for those with little tanks....you may do almost 200 miles. I have tried to keep you off the roads as much as possible and off the peri tracks where I can but it's not possible all the time. You should have about 80% off-road and each leader will have the option to mix things up a about as you go.

There will be 2 hard groups led by Sexysi and MHsnowy. there will be a max of 10-12 in each group or less depending upon the leaders wishes. With the exception of one uphill bit I've ridden all the route on my 950 and it's all fine.....I can't get my 950 up the steep bit so we'll see how you are get on!

The easy ride will not cover as much distance and be based around the easier trails but with some options to mix it up if people wish along the way. Those who joined my or Si's group last year will know what to expect. There will be a fuel stop half way around..we will do over 100 miles

There will be 3 easy groups led by me, Speedfour4 and Bikenav.


As before we will all meet at the fire for 09:00 AM and split into our groups where each leader will plan how to run their group.

It's a bit dusty but there are still some deep puddles to be found in the usual places.

We are using the same field as last time...right at the bottom of the car park on the left...don't camp near the fire and use the whole field. A hedge has been removed since last year.

So keep an eye out here for the GPX files and I'll see you there on Friday...I'll be there around 15:30.

Any questions please just ask...all are welcome.

Here are the GPX files for the hard ride. Please can somebody upload them and check them out. They are created on TYRE using google earth but should be fine for people to follow as a set of waypoints.
