The area is well known to mountain bikers and boasts around 24,000 acres of woodland to explore. We have organized social rides in the Forest for over a year, but found that the single group format was presenting a barrier to many who were unsure of the pace or distance involved. That is the beauty of this new format. You start when you like, rest when you like and travel at your own pace. Riding the route on a single day should help to keep some of the social elements of previous rides.
Self-supported and self-paced; there are no entry fees, no marshals, no route markers, no feed stations and no mechanical or first aid support. All we supply are great routes along the best gravel paths, lanes and byways that the Forest has to offer.
The series will kick off with ‘A Sunday in Hell’ on July 5 th. This is our flagship ride, a 100km gravel challenge taking you to some of the best viewpoints in the Forest and Wye Valley. This one is not for the faint-hearted and will require high levels of fitness and stamina to complete.
Other rides in the series include a 40Km ‘Turkey Run’ (easy ride), a 50Km night ride called ‘Into The Darkness’, and a 60Km ‘Fire and Brimstone’ ride.
