Brisol Bike Fest
I’ve got a couple of sets of swampthings, to you very cheap, very reasonable. £50 an end…
I’ve been trying to come up with a metaphor to describe the effect Swampdonkeys have on a bike’s rolling resistance, and the best I’ve come up with so far is “like a centipede with velcro on its legs trying to crawl through Slash’s hair”. Can anyone else do better?Posted 8 years ago
Shortcut, some bits will be bad. There are a couple of sections (a few hundred yards in total) that are basically along the edge of a field and will turn into slop very quickly if the anticpated downpour materialises.
However quite a bit of the course is now hard surfaced and the singletrack is also very rooty and rocky, so if you go for the sort of ultra-skinny 1.5″ mud tyres that are so good for Mountain Mayhem you may find yourself suffering on the techier stuff.Posted 8 years agoTazSubscriber
It’s a great section in the dry without loads of people around. Lot of incidents there last year in the dry. Will be an ‘interesting’ section if wet. My GPS clocked me at > 60kph on 3 occasions through there last year 8O. May take it a bit steadier this yearPosted 8 years ago
OK – BBQ on friday will mostly be steak, possibly some kebab and lots of pasta salad and probably a lettuce leaf to look good!
Another dumb course question. Which way does the course run, there seems to be no indication on the web site, I assume it goes across the top left to right but I am not entirely sure about, I kind of know the area but have never done the course.Posted 8 years ago
