Often run at mallards Pike, but now they have started charging for parking it is not quite such an attractive proposition..

Spans I was there all sunday too! Cycling and then playing footie and cricket and eating mega picnic tea. There were lots of orienteering types about in the forest and then having a bbq, that wasn't you was it?

yes that was me and Dillo and Multi and Calf and Brewster and its time... I can't believe that I didn't see you! Were you in the big group in the carpark?

My navy and cream camper was parked just beside you!!!!
I was directly across the field from the BBQers, near the trees, with 8 adults and 8 free range kids who kept running thru your BBQ
Oh Spans...... was it really you?
They all seemed more mature than you though.. and there was a prizegiving.. we didn't set up camp til about 4.30-5.00. And mysteriously from about 7.00, we had the whole place to ourselves...... cannot think why.

ohno that wasn't us then, we were based on the bridge bewteen the two sections of lake... no snazzy bar-b-q for us just a cup of water and then we were sent on our way!!

Spans.. was this Cannop?

Nice one Barkles. I had my first SPD experience last week, and now have had 4 ride outs with them. I can't believe the difference they make.

Specially on the hills, FS.. really do help..

Cannop? I don't understand so I guess not! It was an Adventure Racing training weekend organised by www.trailplus.co.uk

Cannop is the ponds/lakes & picnic areas or maybe you were at the lake at Mallard's Pike! Anyway,we were in the same Forest together... so that is very sweet x

we were at the lake at Mallards Pike... wouldn't that have been funny if we had bumped into each other!!!... shame we didn't really... how was your birthday btw?

Spans we would normally have gone to Mallard's pike for ice-creams en route but were with a seven year old on own bike and thought it might be a bit too far back up.
My birthday - gosh, thankyou, how did you remember! It was very good in parts, only burst into tears twice, and I finally chilled out with about 10 mins to go, one red and green (2 shades) dragon finally iced with butter cream rosettes (sort of!) with onto boy-cub's cake - his birthday is today!
