- Eastbourne cyclists warned over deadly traps
Paradise MTB is a small dedicated area at the bottom of the old SDW route. Not actually on the SDW. This area is well signposted with ends of runs fenced off to slow riders down. I was over Friston at the weekend and a few berms have been kicked in and made structurally unsafe, a wooden ramp jump totally destroyed, the usual logs and big flint boulders left in the middle of trails. I hope this doesn’t end badly.Posted 3 years agorichardthirdMember
Very sad, I’m local too. Will keep an eye and let others know.
There is big anti-cycling venom from the coffin dodgers angry that cyclists are [at last] being allowed to cycle along parts of the prom, instead of being squished by holiday traffic on the busy road.
Apart from this, it’s an absolutely fantastic area to ride bikes, on or off the road.Posted 3 years agoKojaklollipopMember
This is crazy, what are these people hoping to achieve?!
I ride through Friston now and then, don’t see it on the main fireroads but remember a while ago finding logs and branches across some of the routes in the woods, never see anyone doing this sort of thing but guess you’d have to be lucky to be in the right place at the right time.
Some of those routes throuh the forest are graded for family use so you get parents with their kids riding around. There are some strange people around these days!Posted 3 years agoJunkyardMember
we had a guy oop north burying nails embedded in planks just under the mud – clearly more dangerous for walkers than riders as it was a footpath
Seems to just make do with rebuilding a wall – never high enough to stop you and someone built a nice kicker to help you hop over itPosted 3 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
I stealthily watched an old lady drag a log almost her size across a main mixed use trail in Hopwas Woods, nr Lichfield. I rode up just as she was walking off, & dragged the thing well out the way as she watched. When I asked why she had done it she maintained it wasn’t her.Posted 3 years ago
