Hello, I’ve just joined. I’m near Pulborough in West Sussex.

I love riding my road bike around areas like Cranborne Chase and Salisbury Plain, and have found myself getting more and more interested in old drove roads and ancient tracks. I’ve ridden parts of some of these which are metalled, but now I want to ride the parts that are BOATs or ORPAs too.

I’ve just got a Honda CRF250L, and am looking forward to taking it off road. It’d be great to meet some like minded riders.

Here's the trail bike the day I brought it home (a week ago):

And this is where it lives:

Another warm welcome from an East Sussex member.

Look forward to meet you if you find yourself over this way, or anytime i make it over to the beautiful Salisbury plains.

Peace out for now and happy trails.

hi Folkie, from another East Sussex-er..... :)

If you haven't discovered, local TRF business meet is last Thursday of month at Ashington villiage hall (Just up the road from Washington)

There is also a TRF Social meet over in East Sussex (Sussex is quite a large county, and it's a bit of a hike from east to west) on the 2nd Thursday of month at The Sussex Ox, Milton St (nr Alfriston), which, if you can join us, welcome. :)

All the best, maybe's catch up on the Byways of Sussex......
Andy

Hi Andy; thank you for the warm welcome.

I think we met at the Ashington meeting last Thursday?

Is the Sussex Ox meeting strictly members only, or could I bring the other half?

Hi Nigel, yes, I think we did. :)

More the merrier, the Sussex Ox is a social, so yes, other half's are welcome.
