Club Rides: June 09

5 06 2009

Summer’s here and there’s loads of top riding going on at Sussex Muddy@rse, here’s the dates for your diary:-

6 June – Ladies Ride no.3.  We’re going to visit the trail at Bedgebury.  It’s a manmade singletrack trail ideal to cut your teeth on, very similar to Friston and at this time of year, not muddy!  Meet at 10am for 10.30am roll.  There’s an opportunity to stop halfway round for something to eat, it just means coming off the main trail and winching our way back.  Probably best to keep all day clear because we might want to session bits if any girls want to improve skills.   There is nothing dodgy just good fun challenges.  Mileage in total about 12. Ride Leader: Lisa
(clicky link for free parking meet point at Park Lane, Nr Hawkhurst:,0.48867 |15|4&bd=useful_information&loc=GB:51.0733:0.48867:17|park%20lane%20hawkhurst|Park%20Lane,%20Hawkhurst,%20Cranbrook,%20Kent,%20England,%20TN18). Small so pls park close together.

6 June – Northshore sessioning.  Rick’s wanted to do this for quite a while and as the girls are going to Bedgebury, what better excuse.  We¡¦ll all start the ride together, but those ‘boyz’ who want to can disappear to play on the woodwork and improve their Northshore skills.  The girls will then either carry on with their riding or dip into the visitor centre for a bite to eat.  We’ll then meet back at our cars / Northshore area depending on time.

7 June -Long(er), Fast(er), Hard(er), Muddy(er, Arse(ier) Ride.  What is says on the tin.  This time a North Downs Killer Loops starting from Box Hill.  Approx. 30 miles and 1000mtrs of climbing, but this time with technical singletrack (Barry Knows Best, Mutiny, Telegraph Row) thrown in too.  Bring plenty of supplies for a 5hr min ride, you know the rules, map and meet point link in the forum, give all day.  Ride Leader: Rich F.

20 / 21 June ¡V Gumber Bothy trip.  Make your own way there for a night of camping and celebration.  It’s my birthday and I love camping and if you’d like to join me then check out the forum for further details.  We’re going anyway so no pressure if you can’t make it.

27 June – Ming’s 40th Birthday Bash.  Mrs Ming decided he can’t ignore it any longer so she only went and arranged a surprise (sshh don’t tell him!) ride and BBQ back at chez Ming for anyone interested.  Rick and I are helping lead the ride which might happen to include some of his best bits of Friston and Mrs Ming’s opening an invitation to regulars who’d like to remind him he’s getting on a bit.  A small food/drinks contribution is all that’s needed to gain entry to the BBQ.  Meet point Eastbourne(ish) but will be free on-road parking.  Please let us know in the forum if you’re interested in coming along.

28 June -Club Social Ride.  Ride leader:  TonyS.  Starting from Burgess Hill train station car park (East side – Brighton bound).  Turn right immediately after crossing railway bridge and down road to car park -clicky link for map: ).  Meet 10 to roll at 10.30.  The ride promises 20 miles of mixed woodland singletrack and Downs open trails.  Burgess Hill- Downs -Stanmer -West Wood -Ditchling Common -Burgess Hill.  
As always, I’ll bring the coffee – cake donations welcome !

Happy biking !
