Darren was kindly helped out by club member Mark who had been to Swinley before, and the team all enjoyed a spin around the new waymarked blue route. Swinley is an ideal haunt this time of year as the pine based forest seems to drain much better than the gloopy local Chiltern Hills routes. For those members who made their first visit to Swinley feedback sounded great and everyone enjoyed the ride, meeting some new faces and trying out some new trails!
A big thank you to everyone who left the Easter eggs at home for a few hours to get in some riding and to Darren for taking the reigns and leading the ride at short notice!
This club ride was one of the new events to test out of our new website update that automatically emails all members that a new event has been posted; it seemed to work! More club member only rides to be published very soon, and if you are a registered club member check your inbox (and maybe junk folder) for updates any time an event is posted online or updated!
