In my mobile Zombie apocalypse disposal kit that i carry in my van i find the two billhook items in the centre of the pic below are quite useful in clearing brambles, every now n’ then i throw the billhooks, silky saw and rake in the duff bag and go for a spin through the woods clearing as i go.

Mid-week trips with a Ryobi battery hedge trimmer here, awesome piece of kit, cleared a few previously impassable sections recently, and £3.99 secateurs from Asda in the Camelback on normal group rides. If you wait for somebody else to clear them, you’ll probably end up cut to ribbons.Posted 2 years agomolgripsSubscriber
I needed a machete on yesterday’s ‘exploratory’ ride. Bracken was well over my head, vestiges of a trail totally obscured, and near the bottom of the hill it became mixed with brambles. Seriously, if they had only a bit more tensile strength a person could get stuck in there, like barbed wire.
Used my bike to force my way through, which resulted in my LH pedal apparently being torn off by a bramble vine or something. Had to get rescued. Got some blisters on my left hand too where some kind of plant sap or something has done something.Posted 2 years ago
