    Hope to see you there.
    Was it one of your mates in the helicopter? How is he doing?

    Sorry for the late reply. Did not get a notification. Yes was a friend called Ben. Fractured his left collarbone, plus a week later it was established he broke a bone in his right hand.

    He is recovering well. Thanks for asking.

    The plan is for it to be an annual event , hopefully it will grow and grow once people realise the quality of the riding available in this part of the world.

    Is it suitable for someone who has only evcer done one day off road in their lives? And that was on the centre's 250 bike.
    I have a Xcountry 650 with some tyres that have chunky tread, I think they're K60s, but to be honest I haven't looked, they came with it!

    The whole idea of me getting the bike was to be able to go a little way off road, rough gravel tracks, that kind of thing. If it involves going through 2 foot deep marsh or bog, I know I am not capable of doing that stuff, but admire those that can.

    I doubt it would be at your level, especially with a dodgy shoulder

    You have to be fairly confident and able to ride a TRF weekend

    I generally lead the 'novice' groups and they are all pretty competent

    There are other areas to ride that would be more suitable. The lanes get tougher as the ground gets wetter.
