Where should I go for a ride? And does anyone want to join me?
Just picked up my new Enduro SL, now I want to take it for a ride 🙂 I live in London and would normally head down to Leith Hill and the surrounds via train, but as I’ve got access to a van for the next few days, I thought maybe I could venture a bit further afield, say within 2 hours drive or so? Any suggestions? Can’t stay overnight, so looking for day trip options for Wednesday/Thursday/Friday. Would be happy for any company if anyone is London based and wants to throw their bike in the van as well!
Also, I’m looking to go somewhere overnight this weekend with my better half, I’m going to organise a demo bike for her to try out, hopefully get her hooked on bikes as well (could be dangerous!). Any thoughts on a good place to take her to get a good introduction? One of the trail centres perhaps? Or is there any good B&B accommodation in the Leith Hill area? Something nice and cosy?

How about the Chilterns for a weekend of riding? Don’t know what the current conditions are but there are folk on here that have local knowledge.
There are some fantastic trails there, great scenery, lots of variety, pretty villages, red kites in abundance and, if you’re unlucky, miserable bl***y walkers.Posted 9 years ago
Ooh! Another London-based rider?
I live on the edge (of Newham), and sometimes go over to Swinley, Surrey Hills, etc. Wouldn’t mind hooking up with other riders. A mate and I drive there now and then, but be warned, it will take longer than an hour and a half to get to Swinley. More like 2. And I’d suggest getting onto the A12 Blackwall Tunnel, A2 then onto the M25, unless you want to be stuck in South London traffic. Then, M3, come off onto the A322(junct.3?), then left onto the B3430, and you can’t miss it.
Can’t make it tomorrow, but hope to be over that way soon. Was there talk of a ride in a couple of weeks time?Posted 9 years ago
yah, thought 6″ would be a bit silly! itching to take this new bike for a long ride though, maybe I’l head to Wales this weekend! Might be a bit tough for my partner though?
RudeBoy, hopefully us London folk can hook up for a ride at some point, what do you reckon?
off to bed now, gotto leave early in the morrow now 😉Posted 9 years ago
Yeah, definitely. I know at least one near me, and there’s a few more off here, that reside in the Smoke.
Was thinking of a NYD jaunt up to Epping. Hopefully it’ll be frozen, and not so muddy, but it will probably be muddy.
Take your new bike! Swinley is all about having fun, whatever bike you’re on.
