    Not so "challenging" medium hot ,off road ride out

    This year Callard and myself are helping Steve out by doing the medium level off road ride out.Plan is to work our way west towards Marlbourgh and then head back in towards the plain.Its going to be pretty relaxed mainly all green lanes and tracks with a bit of everything from chalky climbs to tank tracks!
    The ride will be ideal for POGO's or the brave if your on a big bike.Im guessing its going to be around 80 miles with a fuel stop around the half way point.

    Let me know if you are going to join us and what your piloting.

    Cheers

    If it's dry and you agree, me on a 1200 on Tourances. Unless you plan on finding every muddy and or wet chalky bit of Wiltshire... Which is fine - I'll just do the easy group.

    If its dry it should be fine,few tricky bits and some deeper ruts but half the fun is making sure everyone makes it thru.

    Cheers

    If it's dry you'll be fine on road tyres. A lot of the plain is very hard packed at the minute, and i didn't see much mud about today...

    Hi chaps

    Am keen to participate in 1 of the ride outs. Will be on a 1200 GSA with conti trail attacks.

    2 rideouts under my belt which was a mix of road, dirty/wet country lanes and light gravel type tracks. Level 1 off road course done 3 or so years ago.

    My balance on the big un is pretty good, so am open to advice as to recommendations.

    Gracias

    If Jason has too large a group we will need to split it in half, and I think you know enogh to lead that second group.

    Im going out Sunday from the rugby club 9ish to ride the planned route.Would be great if your able to make it.Im not sure Callard knows the area that well so another person on the ride with local knowledge would be a real bonus.
