It's early season so I'll be huffing and puffing like usual. Come join me (and maybe pass me). This should be an easy pace otherwise known as a slackers outing. It isn't really a beginners level trail, you probably need a little experience and a decent bike, but it should be a good afternoon for anyone in the novice to moderate level.
No speed demons please, we will stay together and regroup at intersections or as required.
Direction can be clockwise or counter clockwise as the group decides at event start.

There may be a chance of heading to a pub after for anyone so inclined to rehydrate.
