Thinking of taking a spin over this week from Brighton, hows the trails faring ?
Friston Forest Conditions
I too would be interested to know. Knowing them it'll still be fairly muddy in places despite last weeks dry weather, considering it probably barely went above freezing under the tree cover.
On Sunday it was super fast as 98% of it was frozen. We avoided some of the flatter bits as they might have been soft plus where they are so cut up it means frozen ruts etc. Most of the downhill biased singletrack runs were running well. Loads of new runs at the DH area also thanks to all the great builders
Of course its warmed up a bit now and some drizzle.....but stick to the non flat bits and should be fine, main fireroad to get back up or slog/walk up the maimed bridleway shortcuts
middle parts of rattle and hum usually hold up ok, the top bomb hole with tree and bottom runs are usually a mud fest, probably no worse than last summer to be honest.
EDIT: new runs you say, might have to take a look at the weekend.
Yes just go up the diagonal path which goes through the original (x files iirc) DH then at the top go about 15 metres to the right, one there with various lines, another further along and if you had gone left there are more up there past the normal one
Cheers, there used to be a steep twisty DH run up there a few years ago that got a bit scrappy, past the main DH run.
