What kind of routes do you guys do up at Kings Wood? Are there some sensible routes up there for someone just finding their feet?

Hello Jonny.
We ride the route in I bit under 2 hours and it's up to 25k at the most. It's mainly single track with a small amount of fire road, but we just stick to the wood. There is no scary hard core bits and anything that would make your wheels leave the ground for we warn in advance. New faces are always welcome and the pace isn't mega fast we slow for the slowest rider but try not to stop/start and chat the whole ride.
So in a nut shell if your happy riding off road for 20ish k with out having to stop, then it's a good one to come out on.
Good off road lights and a helmit are a must though.

Hello Wes, as said everyone welcome to join the rides posted. As for lights there a lot out there to chose from. but for off road night riding a main light of at least 1000 lumen my opinion is need. a lot of people run one on the bars and one on the helmet. brands names id recommend are exposure and hope, but their not cheep. the Chinese  are selling(through ebay) some very good lights that are very cheep and very bright, down side is the wait for delivery and not as reliable, also run time is a little less maybe. but for the price you can but a few of these to one of the brands i mentioned.
Not sure if ukcycles stock what you you'll need? a looked at their web site and looks like its mainly lights to make you seen not to see that well with.
i will have a spare bar mounted light this week if anyone wants a loan of alight, as mrs skids at work.

I am going to bring my Exposure Diablo that I use on my commute but take on board what you say regarding having one bar mounted and one on the bonce. I will see if I can come up with something acceptable in addition to what I have.
