    Had such a good ride in FoD today I felt the need to tell a bunch of Internet strangers. Rode a load of new (to me anyway) stuff – Shutcastle trails, Tramline plus classics like Dr Johns etc and a new Dowies (3) showed to us by Dowie himself. Bl88dy great, sun shining, pretty much bone dry trails and great riding company with Bigfoot MBC. Awesome day

    And who’s this Dowie chap, probably some MXer ripping up the woods… 8)

    Yeah go for a mooch, its great fun, the pixies have put a lot of work into it. Dowie reckons he had nothing to do with it, but I’m not so sure!

    I was out in that area for only the second time on Saturday as well – the trails over there are excellent and lots of fun was had. I’m not sure what bit was what but all of the trails I did were great fun!

    It was the first ride out on my new C456 and the bike and trail seemed to be a match made in heaven!

    In which sort of direction would are we heading?

    Tramline/Shutcastle need to get down there more often and explore more.

    No not the bluebell one, as far as I know its a really recent one. Loads of earth been shifted, some really well built, solid jumps. The start is 2 or 3 hundred yards past the original Dowies start and it finishes on the fire road right near the end of Dowies. It is quite hard to find actually, we’d heard about it and rode round a few times trying to find it and it was only when we bumped into Dowie that he took us to the start

    So does Dowies 3 start near the little kicker by the fence on the original trail – or am I completely lost?

    isnt that dowies 2…there ‘may’ be a strava segment if you explore for it (havent done it but my mate just sent me the link)

    Yeah there ‘may’ be a strava segment and if you use an iPhone as a GPS it ‘may’ not pick up that you went down it and therefore your time ‘may’ not show up on the leader board even though your mates time showed up 4th and you did it significantly quicker than him. Bl88dy iPhone.

    Rode it tonight great trail, you can just float down all of it. Little greasy but dowies 1 was dry as a bone!
    Shout out to Rob who I met top chap & the lady horse rider

    Warning though, some kids (young kids) had piled some branches over the track at the very start…nothing malicious just being kids
    Also why was there a goat tethered to a tree…honest to god it was like jurassic park, expected the t-rex round the next corner 😯
