Sunday 8th December 2019 marked our third annual mountain bike trip to Cannock Chase with the Potton MTB group.
In true mountain bike style we started by meeting at the Premier Inn, Rugby for some carb loading before heading up to Cannock for the ride. Twelve riders made the trip and the conditions were amazing given we were in December. The trails were pretty dry, weather sunny and temperature perfect.
For those in the know we rode the Follow the Dog & Monkey Trail routes, which were vaired and as demanding as you made them. The crash count was a reasonable four, with no-one getting more than some bumps and cuts. No mechanicals and no dramas.
We started riding at 10:15 and were all done by 13:15, a fair days riding with great company, many laughs and not a car in sight.
Next years' event is set for Sunday 13th December 2020, get the date in your diary now.
