Darby Forest - Mountain Biking Trail Centre Day Trip. 25 Oct

Post by Claire T »

Arranging a day trip to Dalby Forest Mountain Biking Trail Centre on Sunday 25th of October. Bike hire and visitor centre on site and all welcome. Loads of different distances and skill levels available. Folk can do as much or as little as they want and it will be a great opportunity for new riders to have a play.

A fun sociable day with some gnarly mega downhill rage for anyone that wants that too!!

Shout up if you fancy it.

1) Claire Trenaman
2) Sarah Sharpes
3) Karl
4)Vicki
5) Marq
6) Kate S
7) Dom
8) Sarah
9) Cusco

I would recommend that we meet at the car park near the Visitor Centre - however, I've just seen that it is £9 for parking :shock: and the machines only accept cards currently. The car park address is Dalby Visitor Centre, Low Dalby, Thornton-Le-Dale, Pickering. Should be able to find it on Sat Nav.

10am ok for everyone?

If we have more than 6 attendees then we can easily split into smaller groups and we may have natural split with different routes chosen too. Shout up with any questions.

Assuming Mary Kate (bike) will fit in Morticia (car), then I'll come and do the blue one.

Sounds good, if we split into groups by trail we can have 2 groups of 6 :D

I'm keen for blue!

We might be going for green route as well (or one of us will be) if anyone wants to join that route.

Dom and I would like to join. We’d probably be doing the red route. A second group maybe?

Lindsay - sorry to hear that. Due to a contact or because you've got the super lurgy? Hope you get well soon.

Vicky and I are still hoping to get over on Sunday. We'll be in a blue skoda with bikes on the back.
