More details for those not on the mailing list:

Don't forget about the Greno woods stakeholder meeting (just for mountain bikers!) Wed 18th August at 6.30pm (that's tomorrow!) – meet at the Wharncliffe/Greno/Wheata carpark off the Woodhead Road.

The wildlife trust are going to explain the current situation with the Wildlife Trust and the woods and say a bit about our aspirations for the woods followed by a ride round to get an idea of what’s already there and valued by mtn bikers and ask people for thoughts and ideas for the future.

Unfortunately I couldn't get up there in time for the meeting but did turn up for the ride.

Massive turnout, lots of folk there so hopefully Roy from the Wildlife Trust got some good feedback.  Turns out I know him from University!

Anyway, he led a ride and is keen to see the woods used by bikers.  The trails were wicked so I'm definitely going to explore further.  The potential is great and for once it doesn't look like there will be any issues with the land owners!

Oh, and respect to Craig for hitting the quarry drop with a big audience!

There's an appeal to raise funds so you can donate to support a 10m square piece of woodland.
