I'm heading over to Bedgebury on Saturday.

I've been told the route is very clear but I've never ridden it before...

There is a chance that there will be somebody with me that knows the route but it's a small one.

So if you fancy a trip out Saturday morning the weather is supposed to be good...

I'm aiming to get there for about 10am as thats when the local club group starts. That means I'd probably be leaving Thurrock Services at about 08:30.

Address:

QUENCH CYCLES @ BEDGEBURY
Bedgebury Visitor Centre
Bedgebury Road
Goudhurst

Gah still haven't been there and not sure I'll have time this weekend. Will hopefully be nice and dry now.

Fingers crossed with the weather...

Runs are all marked , and easy to follow, even I don't get lost :-)
You can get a map from the visitor centre or download one.

The car park costs about £7 per day , but the lay-bys on the A21 just before Flimwell are free :-)
They are just by an entrance to the park and lead you to the first run - Genesis.

It usually takes about an hour from the Tunnel.

Oh and the cafe is excellent ... Brie and Bacon Baguette mmmmmmmmm

Wish I could join you ... Have fun

I've no time limit really (past what my legs can hold up to).

I plan to get there for 10 for their club ride then either stay with them or go off - I was thinking at least two laps, one to learn a little and then a second to have some fun...

Afternoon. Am gonna try and join you down there and get some miles in, got a pass and the car, so want to make a day of it. Heading down from Chelmsford. I'll be in a battered purple Polo, but don't hold that against me :mrgreen:

Where you parking? Lay-by or Car Park?

Cheers:

-Dave

I'll be in the car park mate, I'm aiming to get there for 10 so I can join the local club.

I plan on doing it with them and then again on my own.

See you in the morning ;)

Think the club ride is a bit more family orientated riding speeds, its all sign posted the way around so no problems for getting lost (I say now). See at 9:45-10ish. In a bright red seat Ibiza, blue bike

I was thinking that it sounded like it was taking them a little long to get round (they say 3 hours)...

Cool with whatever - just want to get out in the sunshine!

I've a black VW Passat CC

Looks like we'll meet there around 9:30/10:00.
