There are some near the Meon Hut (loomies cafe) but I don't know them. Would be interested in finding out about them though.

It is only 20 minutes to Salisbury Plain! There are trails and tracks. The trails are open most of the time, tracks can often be closed off while they have war games.Shrewton is a good place to start as there is a dusty track that runs parrallel with the road. Road routes - A272 from Winchester to as far as you want to go in an eastward direction. The roads in the forest are OK but slow (40mph limit).

What time are you planning on going? Not sure how early I will be getting up as I'm out Satuday (tonight) but if it were mid-morning I might come down and join you.

If not, then another time.

I'm going to get there prob about 11 and stay they until either 4 ish, or I run out of fuel or the bike breaks down, or I break something :) It's more likely to be the latter.

I haven't been off road for years so i'm really just going to get use to the bike. You're more than welcome to come along. :thumbup:

If anyone's interested let me know :thumbup:
