Our ride started around 10:30am at Coombe Hill main car park with fifteen of us ready to go for a good blast around the Chilterns. After a quick briefing and after I had made my excuses for riding whilst recovering from a serious case of man flu we headed off onto the trails out towards Chequers.

The trails were riding extremely well in the morning - hard frozen yet bumpy conditions got us up to speed and got a good few miles out of our legs before the trails started to thaw. We did well, the trails started to thaw around half round the loop, with only a few really wet and sticky patches appearing.

Our route took us from Coombe Hill down towards Chequers, out to Cadsden before a good loop round Whiteleaf, then returning once again via different trails through Cadsden and Coombe with a few extra single track loops before reappearing back at the car park.

We had a good mixed group for this ride, regulars, new faces and riders of varying fitness and riding experience, it meant for a really nice paced social XC ride with lots of new friends made - a great success! Also thanks to our friends Jessica and Danielle from Astounding Adventures who traveled from the Surrey area to join us for our ride.

Thank you to everyone who came and supported the ride, until our next ride in February (Cannock Chase away day) happy riding and best wishes...


Kind Regards
