Thetford Forest Ride-Out - 13 & 14 November

It's been a while since the last one (June to be exact) so it's probably time to organise another one.

Thetford Forest is a great playground for the big KTMs, so if you've not got yours muddy yet, then a) why not?, and b) come and join in! :D

Provisional dates are Saturday 13th & Sunday November 14th, and it'll be the same route both days. Unfortunately the new lanes I researched over the summer have now closed for the winter, although I'll try to slip something new in somewhere.

We'll meet at Walker's Café, near Fiveways Roundabout at 10.00. Google Map

And I know you'll be better behaved than the last group I took there (TRF hooligans! :eek::p)

Any takers?

I may well be tempted to come along. Only had the 950adv a short while, and need to get some mud under my tyres.

I should have added that I can't really have more than ten to a group, so if there are any volunteers to lead a second group that would be grand :D

As for camping, I don't know... and it'll be freezing. There's a spare room available at Gordo Towers (well, it's more of a heap really...) for anyone from further afield. Or floor-space.

FFS - why are these ride-outs always so far away - we have forests up norf too ya know!!

Would love to come along but not sure a 500 mile round trip from Newcastle is much fun in November, and any knobblies I had at the start of the ride would be gone by Peterborough.

Although, one more big argument with the missus or kids and I'm there! Going stir crazy at the mo :cool:

Thetford's not far away, only 40mins. You just live in the wrong place ;)

As a thought, if there are any dirt-virgins who would like a small group, slow-paced tour of Thetford's tamer lanes on the Saturday then I'm happy to arrange that too.

sure can mate - thetford is flat and fast; with the odd muddy rutted bit and also with some short sandy sections which you don't get to ride unless you do a beach race; not on a par with Wales but good fun all the same

I'll call you nearer to time - i know a good place to meet and we can use some back roads on the way up - bit longer but much nicer
