Signed up for this on November 3 for a laugh (will be my first organised race of any kind).
Never ridden at FoD before - what kind of terrain and trails should I expect (assuming the event will take in off-piste stuff)?
Also looking for place closer to me to ride for a bit of preparation. Being in the East Midlands means my closest proper riding is either the Peaks (including Wharnecliffe in there too) or Cannock - which of these is closer to what I'll come across in the FoD? Anywhere else I should look at that's closer to me than the FoD itself?
