I've spent the last three mornings on the red route at Chopwell woods.
I gather that it's an easy red route and doesn't take much doing.
There have been a couple of sections where by pure luck, nice brakes and a bit of magic, I have ended up only knee deep in the bushes (both times jumping small puddles and that was about it.)
I was fortunate to (lucky) to grab the brakes and manage to stop without coming off, but I did sort of throw myself back to get away from the thorns.
Is there a way to crash properly? Should I throw ,myself away from my bike or hang on and accept the consequences of over excitement.
