Abbots wood MTB ride

14/07/2018 , 10:00 am

This is the ride which was cancelled a few weeks ago….

Sat 14th. Start time 10am. Meet at the junction of Levett Road and Shepham Lane, Polegate

This is a flatish ride with no technical skill required. Start at the beginning of the Cuckoo Trail. A loop through Abbots Wood. Then a mixture of single track and road (via Arlington Reservoir) to Middle Farm. Then the Coach Road back to the Reservoir and follow the same route to Abbots Wood where we will do a different loop and back to the start.

Distance around 20 miles. Mainly flat some humps on the Coach Road. Terrain is very bumpy in parts.

I would suggest fat tyred bikes but if people want to bring hybrids be warned that some parts will be a challenge.

Usual caveats apply. Water, Helmet, a bike that doesn’t break down!. Don’t forget that there are such a variation in wheels sizes now that you cannot guarantee that someone else will be able to help out in the event of needing another tube, if you haven’t made provision yourself.

Let me know on 07505665072 if you are coming. Ride may be altered depending on weather.

Thanks – John
