People from Norfolk, Norwich

edited August 2011 in MTB rides
Hello, first post :)

I'm from the really hilly part of East Anglia called Norfolk. Sometimes all these hills in my area just get to much so I'm looking at going somewhere more subdued.

I'm looking for some riding buddies to go further a field like Cannock etc

Just really seeing who's out there from this part that would be interested.

Thanks, James.

  • Hi, first reply!

    I live near Diss and can never find any one to ride with. I`m definitely up for more interesting riding than Thetford! I can go pretty much anytime as having no dependants at all.

    Hi guys. Check out the linked forum, in my signature. We're based all over East Anglia, although there's a fair few in and around Norwich (I live just down the road, in Wymondham). We have regular rides at Thetford most weekends (9am this saturday, if you're interested?), but also have a few rides further afield. A couple of the guys on the forum are regulars in the Surrey Hills and we often meet up with them down there. There's also sometimes rides organised for Wales or Scotland and some of us did Long Mynd and Cannock a couple of months ago and plan to go back again fairly soon. Feel free to post on the forum. It may look a bit empty at the moment, but we recently had a change of admin/domain name, so lost all our old posts.

  • I was starting to think no one from my way went on here! Ollie would be cool to go somewhere else as Thetford certainly gets a bit tedious after a while. Dave I'm from Wymondham, live on hearts farm! Can I ask your age range? As it would be cool to ride with people my age, 19 but I'm not fussed!

    I know Hearts Farm, have a couple of friends that live there. I live kind of on the outskirts of Wym, as you go out towards Attleborough. Nice to hear there's another Wymondham rider on here. :)
    I'm 32, and most of the guys on the forum I linked to are of a similar age. But I wouldn't worry about that, it's fair to say we don't act our age! :wink:

    What bits of Thetford do you ride? Do you stick to the red and black routes or have you checked out the trails that aren't signposted?

    Loads more mate! And stuff that's a lot better than the majority of the red and black. You'll definitely have to come out with us, so you can see what else is out there. I'm riding there this weekend, but away the next weekend, but should be around the few weekends following that. Oh and I'm 'Davey Gravy' on the other forum, if you post on there!

    Sorry mate, used to come on this forum a lot but haven't been on it for quite some time, up until the last couple of weeks. If you end up back Norwich way, you know where to find us now... :wink:

    Well, there's usually a ride organised for every weekend over on http://ificantrideit.buffer.uk.com/index.php

    I've only been out with the guys a couple of times, but always had a good laugh and been made to feel welcome.
