So just to confirm, that's 29th April to 1st May?

I'm good with that and up for staying anywhere cheap

Well, either arriving Friday 28th late in the evening so that we can get three full days riding in on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday; or travelling down on Saturday and riding Sunday and Monday. If we go on Saturday and travel early enough we could have a play round for a couple of hours on Holmbury as we will be right on the hill.

You're always going on family holidays. What you need is weekend bonding with chums. Mud-chums. Nothing more, nothing less. Far more valuable thanspending time with horrible relatives yet another weekend driving around the Cotswolds.. ;)

You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

No worries, we'll post up photos during the weekend on the forum so you can see what you'll be missing.  8)

Trails wise there's a wide range of many types of riding. It's generally XC with some interesting bits thrown in. There'll be a lot of pedalling around, the few steep trails they have there are short. If you look at the videos at the beginning of the thread they give some idea, though of course they show some of the best trails.

The YHA is the Youth Hostel Association. Basically cheap digs where you either share a room with multiple bunk beds with other people or camp. They do also have private rooms but these are at a premium.

I hope you can make it, it's a lovely place to ride. Two days will see you get most of the best they have there.
