The Marin Roughride 2009 – Sunday, June 14th

by Ben Haworth 0

Just a reminder that this year’s Marin Roughride is on Sunday June 14th, one week later than 2008.

The start is on the moor this year taking out the road climb from the town.

The Marin test fleet will be available from Saturday lunchtime for try outs.

The event is a laid back ride across the open hills of the Welsh borders, there is no forestry. Riders return year after year which makes for a really good atmosphere.

The family friendly campsite, with wonderful views of the surrounding hills, is on the edge Hergest Ridge, above the tiny market town of Kington.

The event costs £27.50 for advance entry, which includes camping, event T-shirt and post-ride meal, courtesy of Wilfs.
