Ok… so following this thread http://www.essexhertsmtb.co.uk/mountain ... t4250.html I’ve finally gotten my act together and set a date for this.. Introducing the catchily named…

Essex Herts - Epping Forest Gravity(less) Bacon Buttie Enduro Round 1… some details below

  • Date - Sunday the 14th of July.
  • Location - Meet @ High Beech Epping Forest. All the info you need to find it can be found here http://www.essexhertsmtb.co.uk/mtb-trai ... forest.php
  • Time - Leave High Beech @ 9.30 for the first stage. ill be there from 9ish to get the start list sorted etc
  • Duration - About 3 hours - 5-7 stages. Although Epping doesn't have a lot of gradients up to 7 stages also means up to 7 climbs and even though they will be at a mellow pace being a little bit fit will help.
  • Timing - You time yourself and at the end of each stage your time is recorded. Ive tested out a few ways of doing it and this is the most reliable and least hassle for all.
  • Entry cost. - None apart from having a stopwatch on you somewhere. Ill be gaffer taping a £3 ebay stopwatch to my stem or bars. There will be a cake related prize for the most ghetto timing setup – some people have taken this to the next level http://ride.io/forum/index.php/topic,118388.0.html
  • Prizes - A bacon buttie. Possibly might throw in a cup of tea as well ;)
  • The Stages - I’ll be getting a video preview of the sections up 3 weeks before the event. Ill try and make the linking stages as fun as cruisey possible!
  • Size - I think 20 entries in manageable so it will be on a first come first served basis.

So once you’re sure you can make it, PM me saying your in and ill pull together an entry list.

Entry list so far -

  • Turner5
  • chatman
  • decoxx
  • VW-surfbum
  • Mattvanders
  • Evil
  • Neil
  • VonROOKe
  • Olive
  • NorthernTom
  • unityjon
  • Geoff43

Don’t expect it to be a slickly run operation. It’s just a bit of fun. Any more details and ill add them in here. Feel free to use this thread for general Essex Herts - Epping Forest Gravity(less) Bacon Buttie Enduro Round 1 chatter :)
