Long Mynd Batch Burner
« on: January 23, 2017, 12:21:36 AM »
Craig's just pointed out the entry for the Batch Burner opens next weekend. If previous years are anything to go by, it will sell out rapidly. It's on 10th June. We could make a camping weekend of it. Anyone fancy?

This is mainly being organised over in the Mynydd Du page on Facebook.  So in case anyone's keen but missing out:

Entries open tonight and could sell out quickly. Rob, Craig,  Tristan,  Curtis and myself are going. Anyone else? Planning on making it a weekend. Camping probably. But there will be b&b's around (as long as you book early, the event might make the area unusually busy).

Entered.

The website is still the ultimate in crap websites. Pics of fat, middle aged MTBers* riding along wide gravelly tracks, with all of the relevant info, like distances, height-gains, etc, hidden in the basement toilet behind a door marked 'Beware of the leopard'.

The event can only be better than the website.  ;D

Wait, nobody said Jon was coming!  Do you reckon they do refunds?!

Has it been decided what we're riding the day after?  I'm game for haldon forest again (i think that's what it was called).

Too late - I'm going to grump at you all day long. >:(

Btw Long Mynd is in Shropshire, Haldon is in Devon. No, I'm not driving 200 miles the next day to ride a family trail. 🙃 Is it Hopton you're thinking of?

Oh yea, it's probably Hopton I was thinking of.  Although...  if you're not riding Haldon then I might stick with that!

Sold out, but I've 'Hopton' to the reserve list and I'll 'Haldon' in there and hope a place becomes available. Hopefully I won't be on the reserve list for Long, Mynd...

There's an article in MBR about Eastridge woods this month, near Shrewsbury. Maybe an option for riding on the Sunday?
