- Cannock conditions for sunday
I’ll be travelling back from derbyshire to devon on sunday morning, my brother lives in cov, so we planned meeting there. I have no idea of whats about, and he is new to the area, so if anyone has any good recommendations around there I woudl appreciate it? I did wonder about sherwood pines?Posted 5 years agoI_AcheMember

Its a trail centre. Apart from the odd puddle, it ain’t going to change too much.
Have you not seen the braking bumps?
If you are planning on riding the dog and the monkey then you should be fine. Rode the dog on Tuesday and apart from a couple of puddles at the start and end it was quite dry.Posted 5 years agorocketmanMember
although we’ve had a lot of rain recently it has, if anything, improved the trails because the concrete singletrack has softened up and now – gasp – the rain actually drains away instead of lying on the surface. The Chase Trails fellas have also been hard at work draining some of the bigger puddles.
Went round Tues evening and it was (almost) like Summer.

yeah my brother said follow the dog and monkey 14 miles or so? TBH I’ll ride anyway but I just wondered what it was gogint to be like.
They are about 14 but feel further. I think it must be all the short climbs on the monkey that make it feel longer than it is.
Rocketman what were you riding I might have seen you. I was on a blue BFe FWIW.Posted 5 years ago
Possibility of riding at cannock this weekend, I’m from deepest Devonshire so I have no idea what the conditions are like at any time, but given the recent rain…
According to the weather at 15:00 on thursday 10th may, the predictions for the weekend are cloud for now, light rain on friday afternoon, sunny all day sat and sun/cloud on sun.
Any experienced cannock folk out therePosted 5 years ago
Thanks in advance. xxkayak23Subscriber
I’ve been riding the place for about 45 years and I’ve been on the “trail centre” bits for maybe a tenth of one percent of my time there.
There’s always dry stuff there.
My mistake, I temporarily forgot about the local riders who always pop up and proclaim that there is about 349000 miles of epic singletrack around the Chase. It won’t happen again.. 😉
Thing is, he’s from Devon, so its unlikely that he will be able to find all the local gems without a guide…
Seriously though, the Dog/Monkey are good fun, and can be ridden in all weathers really. Have fun.Posted 5 years agoToastyMember
The conditions last night were puddlely, slippery and arm breaky. Spent most of today in A&E.
Eep, where did you come off?
It was really swift last weekend, as above, it drains pretty well though. Even when it’s hammering down there’s very few sections that become boggy, be prepared for sandy grit to get everywhere if it’s really wet though.Posted 5 years ago
