If you good folks are looking for something to do in the North East on the 14th of April then have a look at this
It's essentially a 'social' race to celebrate the fact that the National Trust have let us build a permanent freeride track up there. Big selling point is that the National Trust are going to let us start on the monument itself and then drop in to the course in the woods.
Course is reputably fast, flowy and fun and a well dialled hardtail should manage it as it's not too gnarly. So if you have never had a shot at Downhill and fancy your chances then here is your opportunity.
Entry details here at the British Cycling Website or as per the pic.
