Painswick and Popes Tuesday night club ride @ Royal William Pub Car Park

Remember we have agreed NOT to do:

  • RIDE OFF THE BEACON DOWN THE STEPS (WITH THE PLASTIC GAUSE) This slope at the end of run off the beacon was repaired a few years back, and it is not in good shape. We will need to either walk down, or find an alternative route.
  • DO NOT, AT ANY TIME RIDE ON THE GRASSLANDS. We will need to keep to the paths when we make our way over to Walkers.
  • DO NOT RIDE ON THE FORT RIDGE AT ANY TIME. This ancient fort is thought to date back to neolithic times, and it is being eroded by walkers and bikers.
  • DO NOT RIDE ON THE GOLF COURSE. For obvious reasons

Remember to bring money for a post ride beer if you have time:)
