Can you still ride the World Cup course and is it still marked? Was thinking of a trip up there on the way somewhere but not sure really.
Tell me about Dalby
It is marked and you can ride it. You pick it up from around dixons hollow I think. Not sure it's still 100% the WC course but I think most of it's there. There are some surprisingly tricky bits for an xc course, especially when wet.
Also £7 to park is taking the piss a bit when I can ride 4 hours at Swinley for £2.
The £7 is an entrance charge to use the forest drive which I recall paying for 20 years ago or more, long before the bike trail development or anything else existed except a scenic drive. Does seem unfair these days tho, paying £7 to visit the visitor centre, Go Ape etc which you're going to be spending money in/on as well, they should have some sort of money back voucher if you use the facilities rather than just the scenic drive (maybe they do?). It's free if you don't use the forest drive.
You don't have to park in the forest. Always do though as 7 quid doesn't seem like a lot of money to ride some maintained trails.
Its a toll road. The riding, parking etc is free. The £7 is for driving on the road.
