ooo they look nice! So what ive got in terms of options now: DMR (any type really), GT Chucker, Spesh P series, and the Dartmoor Hornet. Its not gonna be any time soon though. Gotta gather the funds up. Its just a "dream" for now :lol:

Hoping to get money from selling some of my bikes, doing well in exams, and hopefully finding a job after my exams.

Yeah sounds good, i've tried figuring out routes on various sites but none of it is making much sense having never been before...'Vaguely' knowing is better than not knowing at all!!! PM me later and we'll arrange a meet
Anyone else fancy it?

There seems to be quite a sizable group assembling via Facebook for an 11am-out-of-Walking-Bottom ride tomorrow.

Planning a bit of a Swinley explore with Sandy Hill, Saturday morning, leaving my place at 9, so Go Ape around 9.15, probably start any time up to 9.30.

Hi all,

What's the ground conditions at peaslake, holmbury? Much snow on the ground? I want to take the missus for a shred up but she's not keen on snow rides .

Cheers,

Shaun

Just enough snow to melt and add to the mud unfortunately.
Nasty.

Fair bit of snow at the top of Leith, a bit on Holmbury too. Nice snow and made for some fast smooth trails but underneath is also deep boggy mud in places. There are major areas of swamp conditions still there but just semi frozen. Riding Holmbury and Leith yesterday was v.cold! and the mud then froze solid to the bike (and froze up my gears).

Hi Guys,

Been Riding around Surrey Hills / Swinley a while but feeling the need for some new people to ride with as most of my old riding buddies either just quit riding, Moved away or work opposite shifts to me and im getting bored of riding alone! Is there a facebook page you guys organise rides on?

Should be okay.

You're logged into Facebook? It's a closed group but you should be able to see the page and then request to join.

Plan was rides would be arranged here in the main, but most people oddly seem to like Facebook. That said it's dead here now.
