Green Laning Around Thetford Forest and Review

Postby hipo1024 on Fri Mar 04, 2011 3:22 am

I'm gauging interest in some green laning around thetford forest sometime soon. I have never done them, nor have I even seen them, so I dont really know much about them. I have selected some lanes that look to be good, and when I made it they were all clear of TROs, but will check again nearer the date.

I think I have around 3 or 4 hours worth of lanes planned out (avg speed of 5mph)....but if anyone can send me a MM overlay of some good lanes around there then even better! :)

Anyone interested in a day out? Would be great if a hardened lane'r or 2 could attend (bobbinsjob) to show us (me) how its done, and pull me out if I get stuck lol. On the other hand, a group of newbies and some rope could be a good laugh lol.

No dates in mind yet, as I say just gauging interest.

A link to where it is incase you dont know were thetford forest is... :roll:

Funny you should mention this I have been looking on memory map, and I would be very interested in trying some of the lanes around Thetford.
