- The STW Singley Mingley Swinley Ride
Hmmm. Given that i’m generally happy to go biking with internet randoms (no offence 😉 ) – what the hell, i’m in 🙂
As long as it’s Saturday 13th as that’s the only date I can make…
In case that date works for everyone / anyone, I would like to get my excuses in early though – the night before is my leaving do from work and, as i’ve worked there for 11 years, I suspect that it might get a little messy!Posted 4 years ago
So who’s in then? As per the other thread, no wierdos, desperadoes, perverts or sexual tyrannosauruses – just a fun ride around Swinley with a bunch of like minded folk.
Generally singles but couples looking for some “group activities” won’t be turned away (just for you 3dvgirl 😉 )
Any takes or just me on my own doing sweet jumps and big skids? 8)
7th, 13th or 14th July
Now sits back to watch the cobwebs forming on this thread as it quickly falls off the bottom of the page 😆Posted 4 years ago
Not been to the new Swinley, I guess no guides will be needed these days… hmm, depends on house moving situation, but I might turn up. I’ll actually be a single on this one (although, far from “looking” I should add!)…
Here are some photos from the last one. That was about 6 years ago! Weather might be better for this one.
PS. How long for the healing Rob?Posted 4 years ago

If anybody can’t make this ride, they could try the BOB open day on 20 July, see the thread here: http://singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/berks-on-bikes-20th-anniversary-open-dayPosted 4 years ago
You might have more luck asking for people from STW 😉
I’ll be on a white Santa Cruz and will be by the new trailhead – not the go ape end things, it now starts where the extension to the overflow car park used to be – if that makes sense… Basically head to the end of the overflow car park and you’ll find the start of the trails.Posted 4 years ago

Doh! I’ve been talking about the South Downs Way a lot lately – I blame predictive text!!! 😉
I actually have no idea where the overflow car park is… Where do I go if I’m starting from the normal car park / lookout? Or do I just have to accost anyone on a white Santa Cruz?!!!!Posted 4 years ago
there’s a long narrow overflow carpark that runs parallel to the main road – follow that to the opposite end from where you came in to the main lookout car park and you’ll find a big metal 5 bar gate – new trails start 30 yards from that. Basically head away from the entrance / coral world and you’ll find it.
Or ask someone where the new trails start – it’s pretty obvious once you get there 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Sounds like this is going to be a fairly relaxed trundle around so I may wander up to stretch my legs / social skills! Doing the Magnificat on Sunday though so don’t want to be overdoing it
Me too 😯
Have entered the Epic but didn’t quite realise how far it was, so might go for a girlie wimp-out and ride the standard route instead… (which is still a flipping long way in my book!) 😆Posted 4 years ago
