[svccridesupdate] Wild Camping an Adventurous Ride Sat 11 – Sun 12 Jun 2022



Sent from Mail for Windows



Dear all,


Think that I have mentioned this before, I’m  looking at doing a ride with a difference.


There is one such local off/on road circa 30 mile, mostly on bridleways. Its fairly steep in parts and if  wet  can be hard going, but it will be summer, ah…then  again we know how fickle the British weather can be!


The propose route, it may vary slightly:

Start and finish  Pitchcombe Village Hall

Slad Ridge

Bulls cross

Jacks Green





Colesbourne (probably camp)

Upper Cobereley


Gloucestershire Way


Buckhold Woods


At the moment Chris Padmore has confirmed that he would like to join me. Am looking for another two cyclist to join us. Please let me know if you are interested?


Criteria: (This is basic wild camping…….no frills!)

Need a mountain bike, certainly with front suspension.

Panniers & bags

Normal cycling attire

Some spare clothing eg shirt, shorts, socks, fleece etc

Water proof top and bottoms  (depending on weather)             


Camping working in pairs

Single fly sheet/tarp for overhead cover with pegs and bungees or a very light weight tent

                                                           Light weight sleeping bag

Short sleeping mat

Boil in the bag food, to include an evening and breakfast meal


Water bottles x 2

Small gaz stove, between two  (I can provide)

Mess cooking  tins, between two (I can provide)



Toileiteries, really only need wet wipes, tooth paste/brush, sun screen


Will meet a  couple of weeks before the trip to finalise all the details.
