Sherwood Pines (Blue Route) - trail cycle
1 people attending
9 places left
Cycling at Sherwood Forest early in the morning and out of peak season is a delight and better than any spin class. We will be completing the 6 mile blue route, which is easily followed by following the blue markers.
Although in terms of cycling this is EASY and a route that families take half a day meandering round, we will be completing it in no more than 2 hours (very very easy for fit men) although I expect the route to be completed in 1 hour (still reasonable).
A seperate walking event follows at 11am. Everyone who comes for a morning cycle on this event will automatically be allowed on the walk without signing up. You are of course welcome to leave after the cycle event, maybe you'd like to try out the more challenging Kitchener Trail (Red Route) by yourself?
What to bring
You will need a basic mountain bike or hybrid (not a road bike), and a bicycle helmet as a minimum to join us, although all this can be hired from the Visitor Centre.
A pair of bicycle gloves is also a good idea, as at speed it can get chilly on your fingers.
Spare inner tube and bike tyre pump is recommended. Should you're bike come into a state disrepair during the ride and you can't continue it will be your responsibility to get back to the Visitor Centre (I will point you in the right direction), whilst others complete the route.
If you're joining the walk later, a spare shirt is a good idea and see the separate event kit list.
Food & drink
You must bring a bottle of water you can take on the ride with you. A high energy snack is also very welcome after (or during) the ride.
