Welcoming Mark to the RCC, I led the MTB EXP ride out of Westcott to work the flanks of Ranmore. Generally pretty good going allowed for a fairly full-on itinerary, comprising:
Grievous Angel, Flinty Badman, Bat Run, Rice'n Beans, Ripped Van Winkle, Jam Jar, Wire'n Blood, AbbaZabba, Blind Terror, Reformation and Numbskull; finished off with the all-important tea and cake sitting in the beautiful sunshine back in Westcott.
Jim will be truying to remember this xc based ride from the pub at wotton over to Abinger,Peaselake and Leith Hill. Tea could possibly be at the shop or the tower or maybe both.
