Wth the Saddle Skedaddle Spring XC Series kicing off in style at the weekend with over 650 riders taking part, don’t forget if you are looking ahead to the Summer Enduros, then the team ot the Gorricks have two corkers to slot into you calendar of events.
The South’s long established premier event, sponsored by Exposure lights, takes place at Swinley Forest, Berks. If you’ve not riden here during the Gorricks or just as on a day out on the bike it is one of the finest areas for mountain biking in the south…matbe even the country! The challenge is not fixed by time, but by the number of 10 mile laps that you choose to ride, either 1 (Fun/Taster) 2, 3, 4, 5 or 7. – what happened to lap six we are not sure!! We were there last year enjoying this superb mountain biking event and will be back once more in 2012, so see you there for a cuppa and a chat !Further details to follow, and Online entry will open very, very soon with entry also available on the day too.
