Swinley Forest Forum Ride – 10th January 2009
Just to confirm that this is most definitely still going ahead. Aleigh and myself will be leading a posse of STW’ers around the singletrack of Swinley Forest on Saturday 10th January 2009. Meet at 10.00 am and ready to ride at 10.30 am.
For those who have never been here before, you’ll be in for a real treat. Loads of singletrack and doesn’t matter if the weather is unkind cos it all drains well and some of the trails are aggregated anyway.
Swinley Forest is located near Bracknell in Berkshire, if coming by car follow the brown tourist signs to The Look Out, on the B3430 which is just off the A322.
Nearest station is Martin’s Heron, Bracknell, and it’s just a short pedal away.
You will need to purchase a day permit, cost Â£2, but the good news is that you can buy this online and download the receipt (obviously bringing it with you). The money raised goes towards the cost of supplies and specialist equipment needed to maintain the trails. Link here
We will ride in the morning for a couple of hours, return to the Cafe where you can purchase reasonably priced hot and cold food/drinks then riding in the afternoon for those who want more entertainment!
Just to emphasise this is a chilled-out ride, easing gently into good habits to maintain those New Year resolutions 😉 We will be riding as one large group which will certainly be a challenge and a sense of humour is essential!
Please ensure you make yourselves known (I will be wearing a bright green STW jersey) cos discount vouchers will be handed out for a brilliant local bike shop – Mountain Trax in Wokingham are again very kindly supporting.
Polite request – those who know their way around Swinley and are prepared to be “strategically placed” within the group – could they please e-mail me. Thank you!
Look forward to meeting you all!

Thanks for the replies and offers of helping, much appreciated.
pete – you need to tell J that the Spring range is making an appearance!
pk – there’s a place nearby that is warmer and safer than the forest, shall I make a reservation for you??!! You can almost see it from Swinley! Top quality clientele!
Sandwich – I couldn’t possibly comment!
rOcKeTdOg – I don’t think you ride a bike cos you never come to any of our events!Posted 9 years ago
r6ymy – I hope you aren’t implying that Aleigh and I are unable to control a crowd of STW’ers?
Take 2 feisty ladies plus some “strategically placed” locals and, in the words of the inimitable WorldClassAccident, “what could possibly go wrong?” 😀
Worry not, I have done this sort of thing before … many times … but not with such an eclectic gathering 8)
We can’t wait!
dobo – Happy New Year, glad you’re coming and you will see some different trails to yesterday!Posted 9 years agobikeyMember
I have at last managed to get my password sorted and I am up and running again. I am sorry to have missed the ride yesterday, but I had no way of contacting you through this site! I am still up for the ride on the 10th, if it is not already over-subscribed? I did msg you before Christmas, remember me, the wheezey bloke with a note from his mum?
Let me know if there is room for one more slacker?

Wow – it’s gonna be quite a turnout!
mboy – put your foot down, you’ll get there quicker! It’s not every day you get the chance of being led around trails by two gorgeous girlies 😉
Hello bikey, yes I remember you! Oversubscribed? There’s room for everyone, including slackers!Posted 9 years ago
