Two day event Lee Quarry

Want to remove this ad? Please sign in or register for free today.

I have been told that there is a two day mountain bike event in Lee Quarry this weekend. Don't know who's organised it but as no one has posted on it (I don't think), thought I'd do the honours.
I saw someone trying to erect a tent/shelter on a hill in the quarry this afternoon during the monsoon and it's not there now, so maybe they've taken up hang gliding instead

Its a pop at me cos I am a horse rider and use the quarry on occassions. Quite obviously my post was not a moan and was intended to inform those who didn't know of the event but may wish to pay a visit. Just cos I am not a moutain biker fan and some of my past moanings have been relevant but obviously not pro MB, I don't think there was any call for the nasty attitude. Everyones entitled to their personal opinion, or at least I thought they were.

It wasn't a nasty attitude it was only a reference to your previous posts that suggest that only certain groups are entitled to use the quarry.

It was not my intention to infer exclusive rights for certain groups, only to hang on to what little, safe off road space there is available. I apologise if my posts infered otherwise. However the Quarry is virtually unusable for other users when bike events are held so what do you expect some existing users to feel? If it was a level playing field, all well and good but I can imagine the uproar if mountain bikers weren't able to use the facility because horses were charging around the area.
Anyway, thats beside the point isn't it and we all have to try and get along with other users.
I am not moaning about the weekends events at all and I am making some attempt here to be more reasonable in my posts. I have not made personal attacks on individuals, just general ones but I will continue to stick up for what I believe in even if it doesn't sit well with everyone.

Re: Two day event Lee Quarry

That's fair enough but horse riders have far more access to offroad riding than anyone else, take for example the motorcycle trials clubs that use Lee quarry, these club events are well organised and run there on about 5 or 6 times a year for a couple of hours on a Sunday morning, other than events like this these people have no legal means of pursuing their sport on public land and the Motocrossers even less so maybe a bit more tolerance would be in order we should all have right of access.
