Malverns and Cotswolds any snow still there?
We did that route I put above and the conditions were near on perfect. There was the odd muddy puddle but generally speaking it was actually dusty and dry. Pretty much the only thing I will be washing off the bike tomorrow is dust. The sun was out but not too hot. The wind was only strong up on the top where it was open and exposed and then we were on tarmac anyway.
Nice route, although I’m not sure the descents are quite rewarding enough for the often pretty steep climbs. Having said that when I have no idea what is around the next corner I tend to err on the side of caution, so if we did it again then I would probably ride it a bit differently so it could be more fun. The views are nice though and over all I would be happy to ride it again.
What surprised me though was “that” area of woods (locals must know what I’m talking about) a distance off that route where we stumbled across a bunch of cheeky stuff. We actually got a bit lost following tyre tracks. 😳 I say cheeky but it’s just so blatant it’s a wonder it’s still there. I have never seen so many lines cut and features built so densely in such a small area. Most of those features are huge. We didn’t really have time to explore them properly but we walked a couple of the lines just to see what was there and it was a maze of step downs, kickers, gap jumps, berms etc. Most of it was far beyond my gnar level though. Would be nice to go back and work out which are the “blue” lines. 😀Posted 4 years ago
