  1. Laid back local ride – bit of a play – certainly NOT strenuous… just gloriously dry Lecky Trail fun!

  2. I’ll give you a shout either later on or early tomorrow. I may decide to rest up & sort stuff out for Wild Boar though.

  3. Hi guys, I’m on for this. I think I know what you mean by top car park so don’t go without me! ( I’ve only ever ridden Leckhampton starting from The George)
