Daisybank dig weekender 2012

Big thanks to all who turned up to repair Daisybank dirt jumps this weekend. It was an epic couple of days of dirt moving and packing in. I still cannot quite believe how much we achieved and how good the summer is going to be riding up there.

Buckholt Wood riding agreement

Last Friday (March 23rd) representatives from Cheltenham & County CC and Bigfoot MBC reached what we considered as a workable riding agreement with Natural England and the forestry manager

Cheltenham & County and Bigfoot MBC hit Ribbesford

With our two clubs having recently collaborated in trying to negotiate the return of mountain biking to Buckholt Woods we furthered this partnership with a superb gravity riding day at the downhill trails near to Ribbesford

Results of MTBers meeting about Cranham

Since the rider consultation meeting at the Royal William last week we have been updating the email list of contacts. Please let me know if you have friends that are not receiving updates and would like to. There were several email addresses given to us at the meeting that we have had trouble reading, sorry.

Below is a link to our formal response to Natural England following this consultation meeting.

You can also follow comments made on the STW forum:

It was decided that we would pursue a suitable settlement for riders until Easter as we did not accept the proposal given to us by the land owner of Buckholt Woods, Mrs Birchall and so we are urging riders again to show their support and stay off the trails around Cranham until this time. We really do need everyone of you to make your contribution to our collective effort. Many thanks. Happy to receive any feedback on the process we are going through or about the situation in general.
