The second event in the SLOW Mountain Bike Score 2018 Series takes place in the Chiltern Hills on Sunday 10th June.
UPDATE: 26TH MAY (from John Owens)
Event Centre is now:
St Leonards Parish Hall,
All of the roads around St Leonards are very small country lanes, so from the N or W it is best to approach via Aston Hill and past Wendover Woods visitor centre and from all other directions via Buckland Common.
There is now no parking charge
Start times are 10:00-11:00.
This is a public event – all are welcome. All entries are on the day but we encourage you to please RSVP to the event via Facebook (event link to follow) or email to let us know you are coming so that the correct number of maps are printed.
We will have SIAC contactless dibbers available for hire at all our events this season for an additional £2!
In an excursion from our usual Surrey Hills locations, this event will be based in the beautiful Chiltern Hills at
St Leonards Parish Hall,
Jenkins Lane, St Leonards, Tring. HP23 6NW
(was originally Wendover Woods Visitor Centre, HP23 6LD.)
Toilets and drinking water are available onsite before and after the event. Tea/coffee & cake will hopefully also be available for a small charge.
