We will also arrange some local 'away' rides from Belhus Woods, Bedfords Park, Weald Park and Hornchurch Country Park.


Note: The above may need to change due to circumstances beyond our control but we'll notify you asap in this eventuality.


In addition to our scheduled rides, we are also planning more 'away' rides from other local sites, such as Bedford's Park, Hockley Woods, Danbury and Hadleigh. These, and other birthday rides from members' homes will be announced closer to the time.



Viv has kindly set up a members-only Facebook page for sharing information and photos. You can find this by searching for 'Trailnet Riders' in the Facebook search box.



I note that some of you still pay each time you park at Thorndon when you could save a lot of time and money by buying a season ticket that covers you for unlimited parking in all Essex Country Parks.
