Comments from David Day – the planner for this event
We return to Sawley village hall this year, last used in 2011. The area slopes from purple heather moors in the west to Studley deer park in the east. At the time of writing the bridleways are in excellent condition and the views fantastic. Many bridleways cross farmland – please close all gates; also used are quiet minor roads but the B 6265 passes through the centre of the area, there will be some traffic on this but optimum routes do not follow this road.
Points to remember, all marked on the map:
- In the north there is 1 ford over the River Laver where there is no footbridge which I have never successfully cycled through due to it’s cobble bottom, there may be cyclists out there who can do better …..
- The bridleway bridge north of Woodfield House is closed but optimum routes do not go that way.
- There is a useful door in the north wall of Studley deer park.
For this event I plan to use ‘gripples’ to secure the controls, they are the foot O version of our wires, they are much thinner and it is easier to put your dibber in the SI box, also quicker to put out & take in – let us know what you think to them.
Food is being sold by the ladies of the village hall – please support them whilst waiting for prize giving after the event.
