Motorcycle trail FOD very good.
Did the new version today bit tracky of the knoll[nice made steps to the side to get up their]then starts to run very fast nice few bomb holes to run in and out and that tree the tight right hander is abit hairy on a hardtail least you can run down it now without a lip on it,over the otherside is nice rocky zig zag.Good job done by the guy who posted on here a while back putting it back in.Posted 9 years ago
Better on a SS than X-bike that would be hairy.Past you twice 1st when you were coming back from the bomb hole and i was of to the trails by the cottage,then when i shouted out one of your mates like it.Wish i had my new Remedy today conditions were great on the downhill runs.Not brought it yet just bedding in new set of X2 brakes excellent bit of kit.Posted 9 years agoSteelfreakMember
Excellent… I’m glad it’s getting ridden. I keep meaning to mark the run-in to that drop-off a bit more clearly; it’s easy to get the approach angle wrong!
Was out today as well and noticed that many of the trees around Dowies & the Bigfoot trail had been marked up for (?) felling. I do hope I’m wrong…Posted 9 years agomattsccmMember
Dowies etc going sometime. Local plan in FC office suggests not this year though but marking may suggest sooner. Having said that most of the timber down to Bream is also marked and that will take a while. Anyway D1 is wearing out and the views will be better whn the trees are gone. When I was a kid the trees were only head height.Posted 9 years agosheldonaMember
Dowies was cleared 5 or 6 years back iirc?
Dobie, so it was you I passed earlier too! I’m useless with names and faces! I wasn’t going to try the MC trail on CX bike as Dowies was enough for me today on the 1st ride out 🙂Posted 9 years ago
Should of taken the Maverick out and done the MC trail, the going was good most of the day with a few loamy patches here and there.
Have not done Dowies 1 for years ever since someone told me about Dowies 2.The one that is wrecked is the son of Dowies all those little bomb holes are shot.Posted 9 years ago
Once raced MR Dowie down the Dowies 1/son off about 8 years ago that was good fun and crazy ended in Tears.Obscura SkyMember
Can someone PLEASE tell me how to find the start of the motorcycle trail? I know where Dowies starts (at least I think I do!) in the woods near Ellwood football field. Could someone give me directions from there, as I’ve tried and failed several times to find it.
Thanx.Posted 8 years ago
