There will be an 11am Epping ride on 27/12/10. Starting at the car park
Ok, Swinley Forest on Bank Holiday Monday the 27th Dec2010
Looks like Barry has sorted out a guide for the day which is great. Im sure we have some GPS details from the last adventure too.
Last big group ride of the year in 2010.
The journey takes about an hour so for those people getting together at this end I suggest a 9.30 meet in the usual car park which should get you there in time for an 11am start once bikes are unloaded etc.
Nice hand made trails
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.
Yep, there is a small charge for riding there.
