Next Ride: Queen Elizabeth Park and The Downs, 28 Sept

19 09 2008

Hi, the next ride will be at QE Park, riding it’s singletrack trail (apparently there’s a few new berms that need testing out).  It’s moderately technical, rooty, narrow and muddy if wet with the odd killer climb thrown in but a fun blasting rooty, off camber in places, decent to finish with.  Then it’s out onto the Downs for some XC miles on the South Downs Way.  Total mileage will be approx. 20 and there will be plenty of climbing.

There’s a cafe at the finish so we’ll be heading there for tea and buns afterward if you have time to join us.  I’ll be bringing the Emergency Contact Cards so please bring a pen or two if you want one, they’re free so you might as well !

Date:  Sunday 28 September

Meet Time:  10.30am at THE VISITOR CENTRE

Where:  clicky link for map

Travel Warning:  Apparently there’s roadworks on A27 at Arundel weekend of 27-28 Sept so give plenty of extra time if going that way, diversions will be in place.

Parking:  the main car park on right hand side (don’t go under the flyover), its pay and display £1.50 for the day according to website.

I’ve just found out that the night before will be the Maxx Exposure SDW Night Ride starting from Beachy Head and finishing at QE Park on the Sunday morning, so be warned it could be busy.  Although from previous experience, and reading the event info, the organisers will be in the car park on the opposite side of the road where there’s camping etc.  We might bump into the odd very tired rider coming the other way and they’ll have ridden the SDW in one go through the night, so give ’em space and give ’em big respect as they go by !

Hope to see you on the 28th…Lisa
