hey all,

thought id try and rally a meet up during my coming visit to the UK. was thinking central England so its as a convenient as possible for as many people. Roger suggestion Wendover woods, which is known as an awesome spot.

assuming weekends are best for everyone im putting forward the weekend of the [SIZE="3"]5th or 6th of Oct.[/SIZE]

completely open to suggestions as far as location so feel free to suggest anything you think would work.

this could also be a good opportunity for any new members to come along and see, try out other peoples boards. see what and who is out there and learn a thing or two.

Well myself and a few friends were planning on hitting Macclesfield forest in the next few weeks

i love the look of the Macclesfield forest pics and vids but i must admit its a bit further than i was thinking of going. depends on if i get a car though. still if other people prefer Macclesfield i will probably go for it.

how many is a few ?

I've barely had chance to ride this year - but I'll try and come along if I can. Somewhere central would be best.

5th October is a Mountainboard Film fest at Bugsboarding in Gloucester man.. but 6th definitely would be on the cards.

oh man your right. i knew it was around the date, didnt realize it was ON it. so yeah maybe some people will already be in the area for the weekend...in fact, maybe ill do that.

ok so lets pencil the 6th for now and see if that works.

Wendover Woods is pretty tricky for me to get to from Cheltenham, where you staying at Ben?

im in kent. i hope i can get insured on my mothers car or get a lift with Ian otherwise i might have to go to extreme measures and rent a car for the day lol but regardless im really psyched to try and meetup with as many people as possible so im willy to make the effort regardless.

i was just so gutted to miss out on all the events this year + being the only rider in my country gets a bit lonesome...

but anyway Cheltenham is actually realtively close to Wendover... where else would you suggest?

Miserden Park is pretty fun, has different types of riding (grass, tarmac, woodland, rocky gulleys) and will run in any weather.

sounds like another good option, especially as its an all weather spot.

Have heard Miserden is a good spot but don't think I've had a ride there.. I could possibly get there though in the afternoon of the 6th! Another all weather spot would be the golden mile, brakeboard territory though..
