UK bike park opened today, and honestly they shouldn't have bothered.To quote them "very limited opening" should be have been emphasised a little more than it was to "extremely limited opening".When signing on i was told only half the hill was open, when really it was less than20% of the hill. Rides were no longer than 15 -20 seconds.
If it were me, I would have delayed the opening until there was something presentable to ride. I know UKBP is "free" but the cost of getting there isn't. I'm lucky to live within 30 mins, but I feel very sorry for anyone that made a journey to get there today.
Is there some beef between to locals and UKBP? When leaving a lady driving a horse lorry blocked my exit and gave me toffee nosed rollocking about not closing the entrance gate behind me. I politely told her I wan't aware that the main gate needed closing. If 'her' gate needed closing she should talk with the people at UKBP and sort it out with them. If there is beef between the local gentry and UKBP, then UKBP need to improve local relations. I'd be very concerned the locals are so peed off on the day of opening.
Come on UKBP let's get the job done and roll on a gravity assisted summer.
