Green laning at the Annual


Green laning at the Annual

Postby Drift on Sat Nov 16, 2013 2:00 pm

Just a heads up.
If anyone wants to organise any green laning for the weekend feel free.
I will very likely lead the normal Corwen,Wayfarer Ceriog, Splashy lane, Whitstones route for the Saturday and may tag onto another route led by someone on the Sunday.
The route above is suitable for less modified cars and beginners but this in no way detracts from the scenery and depending on the weather conditions it can be quite interesting :wink:
They are the classic lanes well documented here and I think one is featured in TOR this month :wink:

Five car maximum in a group I think is reasonable :thumbup:

Not knowing the area, I can't exactly plan a route but I want to get a good lot of laning in and will quite happily lead as I have the technology.

Depends if every one is going as some may be popping over to Bala off road for the day (across the valley).
Plenty of lanes though to keep us separated :thumbup:

Laning for me as I missed it last time.
This posting may have been helpfull, on the other hand probably not... Either way, I may have had drink when posting it in which case it's probably not as helpfull as it could have been

Work safe, and remember all technical problems can be resolved with a hammer, the trick is knowing where to hit it and how big a hammer to use (I often find it may also help to have a spare bit in the shed to replace the bit you have just mullered ;) )

Work in Progress (or not as the case may be) I give you.... 'O-no' the truck.

Comments on 'O-no' the truck may be left here

I'd be up for leading a beginner group (as I think I've previously mentioned), probably the "Ceriog Trail", but a slightly different route to Drift that does not use the permissive "Splashy Lane" - we've used this route on many beginners laning trips.

Will probably run it east to west as well for a change.
