    Do you drive!

    Plenty of people to ride with round here.

    Check out the Wyre forest thread for Wyre, Clent and Cannock chase rides.

    All pretty close/quick as you'll be 5 mins from the A456 i believe.

    I'd be happy to meet up with you local guys for a ride at cannock, or anywhere else really.

    Riding Clent hills tomorrow night (7:30) hopefully if the weather doesn't get even worse.

    Pm me if your interested.

    My riding style is for the fun bits, im not a big long climb type of person, the ride will be 3-4 up and downs using the best tracks over there. About 8-10 miles.

    I have spare lights so lights shouldn't be a problem.

  • Hello all. Hope you don't mind me joining the conversation, i live 10 mins from sutton park so if you go again and if you don't mind i would up for a ride round the park. I'm not the fittest of people but not exactly a slouch either can keep a nice steady pace going. I've done cannock chase a few times too so if your venturing a bit further afield to cannock i'd be up for that too. I work 1 weekend in 3 but usually available the other 2
