    why would you head to Cannock when Wales is closer? (and more weather proof)

    This. South Wales, mendips, quantocks, exmoor and dartmoor. Why would you.

    Like Scruff said. I’ve been there once, it was ok, exactly what I expected with more mud. Quantocks for Bristol for me tomorrow.

    Supposed to be meeting an old friend there: Cannock is midway between us. He’s happy to make other plans if I bail, so there’s no guilt factor involved if I wuss out.

    Fair point then, it’s damp up this way but not sodden

    Daytime tomorrow doesn’t look too bad according to the beeb forecast, but it will hurl it down tonight ( of course, it’s Mayhem weekend ).
    Manmade trails at Cannock cope pretty well in the wet, though. If you’ve not ridden it and like trail centres, probably worth a look.
    Trail centres , for me are fine if you have a few friends from far flung cornesr who want to meet and ride together, but like you, I have natural stuff closer, which makes it all a much easier call usually.

    Visit planned tomorrow.

    Have only been there once before when the trails were dry. If I want to ride in the rain, I can do so locally. Not sure if I CBA with the drive in crappy conditions.

    Please feel free to (de)motivate me.
