Green Roads Trip: Sunday 6th January 2019.


When I first did a New Years trip for the club almost five years ago, an awful lot of rather pale green looking and hungover people turned up.
So this time it was decided to give everyone a week to sober up a bit after a festive season of hard partying.

There are still spaces available, although they are rapidly being taken up.
Numbers will only be capped if there is no-one else to lead additional groups.

Please do not reply to this post to book a space, send an email to me instead at – that way I can quickly and easily send you all the details for the rendezvous point etc nearer the time. 

NB: If the weather is foul it will still go ahead as planned but will be an interesting and mainly tarmac route on tiny rural lanes, using only suitable and sustainable surfaced green roads on the day if any happen to be along the route.

And please also remember to renew your club membership to remain eligible to join in!

Merry Christmas and best wishes,

Former Green Lanes Officer for the club 2013- 2016, Dorset rep for the Green Lane Association (GLASS) since 2016 and now the Green Roads Officer for the club again as well as being the GLASS rep. I'm also a bit of a self confessed Land Rover nut, I've had 8 over the years before finally settling on a 300tdi Defender 90 which I absolutely adore. I make absolutely no apology for taking a hardline approach to green road use, I maintain a fiercely preservationist and often vociferous stance, I am intolerant of mud-pluggers and illegal off-roaders and am a firm believer in promoting both the GLASS Code of Conduct and the three 'R's - Responsible Rural Recreation through education. In the 15 years I've been involved with the hobby, times have changed considerably. We must show the utmost respect to other users and the true definition of greenlaning suggests that there is absolutely no need for wallowing in mud, or a mandatory requirement for winches or aggressive tyres. Why? Because this is now an endangered hobby, a privilege, it is certainly not a 'right', it has also very much become a 'hearts and minds' campaign with a focus on shared enjoyment and making memories whilst respecting the countryside we love and other users.
