- OF Chipps and the Quantocks STW forum ride .
Right hands down cuz i've worked out a quick loop.
Route works out at about 45km(28miles), it goes up and down alot, with about 1500m of ascent and descent.
Descents are…….slaughter house, weacombe, half hitched(knotties trail), stert/somerton, smiths, willoughbys, concrete block, frog and the whole run of holford combe flat out….
Ascents are….sheperds(ladies edge), staple plantation, bicknoller, dog pound, greenway path, part of dowsborough and stert.
The average speed on STW rides are about 3.5 mph, so you'll be riding for about 8 hrs without rest……
Haa haa haa haa, i'm gonna kill us all!!!!
So which descents do you not want to include…Posted 8 years ago
I went down Smiths today and saw no ribs, garmins or computers, bugger all in fact, not even any fallen branches to pen you in to a eye rattling path down…I's almost go as far as saying it's faster, which isn't such a good thing if you go straight on at the kink right and end up OTB in a wet bog..LOL.
Numbers may dictate if segregation is needed.
If anyone wants a group ride before crimbo, say now!
Last september was awesome and dusty, despite this one starting off err moist, i've a good feeling we're in for another dry spell to and with the bracken dying back, it opens up a few extra choices…woot!Posted 8 years ago
Indeed, this post is for OF's/chipps ride, he must be at work.
Was just stating if anyone wants a group ride before then it can be done, there's a few months to go till december..
If there's enough interest then a new thread can be started, i'm thinking alot of bikes will be going away for the winter! 😉Posted 8 years ago
