    MBR Forum Get Together - 9th August , Dalby Forest

    Okey Dokey peeps , we've managed to get this far lets not let it slip away now..... . Will hopefully have time to do two of the main routes and perhaps have a bit of a play around on the Pace bike park.
    For those of us that have never been , there are plenty of clips on http://www.youtube.com and http://www.pinkbike.com for us to have a look at and also a bit of info and some links at http://www.touristnetuk.com/ne/forest-enterprise/ .
    As yet the exact meeting point and time are unconfirmed but we can soon iron out that minor point - possibly around 1pm at The Purple Mountain Bike Center ( http://www.purplemountain.co.uk ) but as I have said this is AS YET UNCONFIRMED so please follow this post for more updates.



    RIGHT THEN , WHO'S UP FOR IT ????????????????

    IF YOU'RE NAMES NOT DOWN , YOU'RE NOT COMING IN ......LOL only joking

    any suggestions for times / locations to meet are welcome as they are only provisional at the moment
    Lets do this people - it'll be fun or my name isn't Shirley Temple
    I like to ride my bicycle.....I like to ride my bike...... Blah Blah Blah

    Hi TF , yeah mate you and your son are more than welcome , greeneyes bringing his nippers aswell so the more the merrier.

    Hi Proph , couldn't of made Cannock tonight mate as late back from work , I agree it does need a little more bedding down as still dead loose - soon sort that problem out though , the stepdown turn back onto the original section is a bit of a ficky trucker - hit it flat out on sunday and nearly turned it into a downhill run ......LOL

    My front wheel washed out on a later easy right hander, luckily I wasn't going too fast but still managed to rip my top and gash my arm on a tree!

    Still loving it though!

    I always say that F.T.D is tricky when wet due to the pebbles BUT I think its worse in the dry I couldn't keep the back wheel tracking the front (sliding every where/broad siding) it was well out of shape on that really fast and exciting section which spits you out onto the fire road before the very loose short climb!

    Roll on the rain I say (just kidding)

    Hi Guy's,

    Proph I agree with you about FTD, harder when then pebbles are dry and dusty than when there's a bit of moisture to glue you down.

    As to Dalby Oh Yes count Sir Q in, I'll see if I can chivvy up Typhoo and Copperjon.

    i cant come now.

    as if. cant wait and wouldn miss it for the world.
    god you three sound so pro, i just tend to follow my front wheel and hope my tyres keep me on my bike.

    i have had some painful crashes through being useless so dont look to supprised when i fall off, im used to it.

    sorry you cant come proph, next time for sure.
