    Cool.
    I know what routes Forry and Spout (roughly) are taking so we can avoid their groups.

    Nick, having not met you before, and you're a ukgser noob, please ensure you have spare inner tubes with you, should you puncture, we will need to do a repair on the trails.
    Your bike will need at least MT21 or equivilant tyres. It is advisable to have rimlocks fitted to the wheels to enable lower tyre pressures to be used.
    Apologies if I'm telling you how to suck eggs, but best now than being stuck on the trails.

    Do yourself a favour and sign-up as a site sponsor @ £12P/A. There a good benefits from this bike site if you own a BMW trail bike, or most other BMWs come to think of it.

    Timpo.

    OK, I've been out with Forry today for a bit of a recce. The trails looked fine. It rained from midday and sure enough, the technicality increased on some of the ascents/descents, but nothing we couldn't handle.
