    I thought you said it would be short πŸ˜‰

    Classic Woburn. Is the first bit by the Moat?

    Nope, the first bit is from the “Empire Strikes Back” trail which I’m sure I’ve seen you mention previously so I think you know it. The rest is all of the “Transfer Line” in the play area.

    Yes I see it now.

    My first attempt at a little self-filming. It’s very rare I’m out during the week so I thought I’d take advantage of the empty trails.

    *Warning* over-biked, wok-smuggling, extreme jey-core in evidence. In its favour it’s very short…

    I would never have recognised the empire strikes back, weird

    Certainly shows how the video flattens stuff

    I need to play more in the play bit

    thanks for posting

    Nice film – I particularly enjoyed the ‘out-takes’ πŸ˜†

    Great little video and I am loving the look of those trails and woods πŸ™‚

    How the hell were you ‘over biked’? I have seen full on downhill rigs there, & apart from the odd ladder drop I really couldn’t see the need.

    Nice vid BTW.

    nice little film… could quite easily have been longer, but i assume it was short because it was so cold whilst filming. why else would you be wearing elbow warmers?

    I know! It wasn’t my aim to film myself today but after I did that first roll-down with the root drop a voice in my head said “I did that perfectly, pity no one was here to see it”, then I realised I had my phone in my pocket so I thought I’d have a go at filming it. Of course when I did it looked like the simplest bit of trail in the world!

    I thought I’d get in the digs myself before anyone else did πŸ™‚ I’m sure I remember someone, who may or may not have already posted in this thread, saying they cycle all of Woburn on a cross bike and questioning whether full-suss bikes were responsible for the development of braking bumps on his favourite “climb”. πŸ˜€

    Like I said it was a very spontaneous thing to start filming. If I’d set out to film myself and I might have remembered to take the Camelbak and pads off. If you’re asking why I wear the elbow pads it’s because the three times I’ve come off the bike seriously I’ve gashed my elbow, therefore I wear elbow pads now. Everyone else seems to wear knee pads but I’ve never hurt my knees. Maybe I’m falling off wrong.

    I hope you didn’t recognise that I still can’t put my outside pedal down when cornering even after a year of trying since you coached me πŸ™‚

    Wonder if that was me?
    I certainly ride my crosser on everything ‘I could’ ride my MTB on. But Tony knows how and what I ride.
    It does flatten it though, I had to think twice about riding my crosser down there.

    Bump stops? I know I moan about people digging on the natural trails.

    I like that. Self filmed videos always require mincey walk outakes IMHO. Good stuff.

    I was referring to this, but strictly in a leg-pulling fashion. πŸ™‚
