Just had a quick spin around Holmbury while wife walked dogs with a friend. With all the bad karma on here, I decided to give Barry's/Golden Birdies a miss today. Explorered and found a few new trails - but surprised at how wet everything still was. All the flattish stuff was full of gloop, water, roots and tire marks. The steeper trails were much better. Why is the flat stuff harder to ride in these conditions???? Parklife/ Yog pots was also somewhat damp but better than expected. Wet though!
All I can say from this experience, is if BKB is in good nick while the rest of the area is frankly not great, then just shows what a great job the trail builders and maintainers continue to do. So, for a second, time "chapeau" gentleman/ladies and thank you from the grateful MTB riders on the Hurtwood!
