If you are going to be doing the ride you may be interested in reading this fascinating insight into the setting of the Wayfarer's Stone.

The correspondence from Vic Ginger should make you smile - very colourful!

I tried a message/request on a 4WD site as they use the Wayfarers a lot.
The only reply was that it hasn't really changed much in the last few years from a cyclist point of view.
There has been some work done in places and TRO's whilst that was done so it shouldn't be too bad.

During the 90s 4wd and trail bikes shredded the route and often left oil.

I was tempted to put short pieces of wood with 2 in nails in all the ruts

I'm hoping it can't be worse than the churned up (northern) section of Monk's Trod, that I encountered a couple of years ago.
And I'm afraid ICFTLOM think what TRO is... :?
