Minehead Big Weekender 2018

Minehead Big Weekender 2018

Dates: Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th November

This is a re-run of the popular and hugely fun Minehead Big Weekender that we did in 2017. We will be staying at the same accommodation right in heart of Minehead, convenient for pubs, shops and whatever else floats your boat…

Outline plan for the weekend:

Friday – optional ride around the beautiful Lynton/Lynmouth and Valley of the Rocks – start time TBA
Saturday – ride ‘from the door’ up cliffside path then few uppy-downy bits including the stunning Horner Woods and the awesome Dunkary Beacon Descent (be warned – you gotta get up there first!)…
Sunday – Quantocks – brilliant ride round the stunning Quantock hills (yes – that’s more hills!) including a play on the downhill runs at Triscombe.

All rides will be a bit on the ‘lumpy’ side with a reasonable degree of technical challenges – nothing mad, and you can always get off and push… These will be big days out, though…

Accommodation is at the Base Lodge, 16 The Parks, Minehead, Somerset, TA24 8BS – nothing fancy, but clean and functional. There is a very well equipped kitchen for knocking up your nosh, although we will probably visit the local hostelries for food and beverages.

Cost for 2 nights digs £35.00 per person, based on sharing a room.

At moment, we have 1 x 5 and 1x 6 room booked Рone for Fellas and one for Sheilas. We can add more rooms if we can get numbers up from the 10 currently signed up. Max number is 22.

Please contact Graham Burgess if interested in going.
