Urgh, I totally f*cked up, forgot to get my bike to Barry yesterday and he's gone up north today. Idiot. (Me not him.)

Anyone else happen to be driving up to Glentress (from the Hackney area?!) with space for an extra bike?!!

I need to sort it by Wednesday because then I'll be away and going straight to Peebles.

Might be worthwhile posting on the Facebook page too - From this end I think it is only Ron, Big Ben, Paul K and David Relf that are driving up so they are who you need to make contact with. Ron has already agreed to take a load of bikes in his van so I'm not sure what else he could take. PK may be an option as I think he's only taking one bike - sorry Paul!!
Never cease to be amazed!

Rob, at the moment I think that it is Ron, Ollie, Kaff, Ben, Paul K, John E, David and Mikey going up on the Thursday. We've not decided anything concrete yet but we'll probably ride somewhere on the way up with a view to getting to the hotel in time for dinner. Presume you are taking Brian and more than happy for you and anyone else to tag along with us if it suits.

Options for the ride up include Ae, Mabie, Kirroughtree or Dalbeattie in the south west corner of Scotland. We could also ride Dalby in Nth Yorks which has the benefit of allowing us to return to the A1 and carry straight on through the Northumberland National Park and into Glentress via Jedburgh or Hawick.

I'm meeting Hannah tonight to get her bike from her so hopefully somebody will have space to take it north with us.

Thanks, that makes it a lot easier and unfortunately Richie is no longer going. All we need to do now is work out a meet point and decide a stop off place to ride on the way up. Suggest we meet for a 6am start :ohmy:

Car allocation as it is:

Ron - Ron & Ollie + 6 bikes
David - David & Mikey + 2 bikes
Paul K - Paul K + Kaff + 1 bike
Ben/Me - Ben, John E & Me
Rob - Rob & Brian + 2 bikes

Unless anyone knows any different that just leaves us to find a slot for Hannah's bike on the way up and Hannah as a passenger for the return.

I'll try to post this on the FB page too so that everyone has the chance to see it.

Miles, as I've only got 2 of us in the car then I can fit hannah's bike in the estate (I'll bring a hacksaw in case it doesn't fit easily ) and can probably squeeze her in on the way back as well (again the hacksaw may come in handy )

Tools

The forest is full of hazards that can bring an end to your ride, so bring a mini pump, spare tube and multi-tool so we can all spend more time pedalling.

Essential

It's simple NO helmet, NO ride. Other than that you can wear whatever keeps you warm, dry and happy. But, be warned some days the forest can be extremely muddy.

No problem, we have regular riders who are 25 years young and some who are 50+. As long as you can keep up you are more than welcome to join us.

About

MBRO35 (Mountain Bike Riders Over 35) are a social group of riders, not a club. As you may have guessed we are mostly over 35 years of age although some that ride are younger so don't let that put you off.

The group ride on a Saturday morning at 11am in Epping Forest which is to the North East of London. A lot of us have lived around and cycled in the forest for a good number of years and we are lucky to have some regular riders who know their way around the miles of singletrack very well. We ride all year round and usually get a pretty good turn out in all but the foulest weather. We are a sociable group and the emphasis is on enjoyment rather than speed or the mileage travelled. Having said that, the rides can be fairly quick at times and whilst we welcome riders of all abilities you will need a good level of fitness in order to keep up as well as a mechanically sound mountain bike. We ride mostly on the forest singletrack, the narrowness of the trails and exposed tree roots make for some challenging technical riding.

In addition to the regular Saturday rides we also do forest night rides on a Wednesday evening at 7pm as well as occasional away days or weekends. If you prefer your wheels on firmer ground, there is also a strong road contingent within the group that often rides out into the Essex and Hertfordshire countryside on a Saturday or Sunday. The road rides usually leave earlier in the day and head out via High Beech for trips of anything up to 70 miles. Most local rides are followed by a debrief in The Station House pub in Chingford where thanks to a very amiable Landlady we have a place to wash the bikes and store them in safety while we have a few beers and discuss the events of the day. You can also read about some of our most recent rides in the Ride Reports section on the forum.
