    OFFROADING AT HOGRAOST

    Sorry to say due to shortage of guide Nathan being our only one due too injuries and retirments.

    Nathans rideouts tend to be for old hands at OFFROADING.

    The LOST DOG could be done on a GS ( BIG TRAIL BIKE ) but not for begginers, but we could explain some routes on the LOST DOG that were easyier, and mark the unpassable on the map for you, once we have started.

    Nathan please explain whome you can handle

    Why? At the minute i'd like to get a few responses from those that want to ride (and what they will be riding), and i'll tailor something to suit the majority- nothing is set in concrete yet.



    I know i won't be able to please everyone, but i may have a spare map or 2 if a few people want to do their own thing.

    As Steve's lost dog event is tailored towards the big GS's and the like, i'll try and focus my ride on the more off road biased bikes.

    I'm thinking of more a medium paced ride at present, but can turn up the fun factor if required (well as much as the xchallenge will let me )

    I should point out that after all the recent rain, the plain and a lot of the surrounding trails are thick sloppy mud, with plenty of ruts thrown in for good measure.

    I did the off road ride last year and really enjoyed it, (apart from trev's spill) this years hograost clashes with the Ryedale rally in which I am entered, but because the previous rally (Kielder) was wet and too rutty for my liking I was thinking about not doing the Ryedale and coming to Andover instead however it sounds like a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire.

    Most of the 'plain should be fine, it does dry out quick if we get a break from the rain.

    You shouldn't have a problem on the husky. Some lanes might need to "work" at, but you will get to the end- provided you have "sensible" tyres

    This year i want to find a balance, between entertainment, decent miles, getting a sense of achievement, but still having enough energy to enjoy the evenings party (something i've been struggling with on previous occassions )

    It was an enjoyable ride up to that point, I was riding the high ground between the ruts when it all went wrong, so it was a long way down when I fell.

    I don't think anything broke ( didn't go to the Docs) but my wrist,elbow and shoulder all hurt for weeks and still have a way to go.

    I know, I know, its all down to not wanting to hurt myself something I didn't worry about a few years ago.

    Well i'll be trying to keep it within the abilities of my own XChallenge.

    IIRC i lead a ride out last year with my bash plate held on with just zip ties, after a heavy landing and not enough suspension travel.

    Not keen to smash my bike to pieces again!
