    Excellent name. 😀

    Trying to get my mate Chair who’s working in Swindon to go along. If you see a hyperactive 7-foot tall bloke with a terrible teenage haircut, riding everything flat out on a rigid singlespeed, it’s probably him.

    Laps and Baps, quite a good name for a club …

    Haha, i always thought “the woods behind nationwide in Swindon” was a joke, didn’t realise there actualy was a trail!

    The original “woods behind Nationwide” trail wasn’t up to much apparently, but the new trail is rather good. It’s ~1 mile but manages to pack in loads of berms, rollers, ladder bridges and rock gardens. And they’ve recently extended it. I reckon every town centre in the UK should have something similar.

    Ahh, and here I am sitting at my desk about a mile away. I knew the trails were there but never knew the club existed!

    Would love to join you but Mrs trb is out tonight so I have to look after the little trbs.

    I may bring little trb down one friday in the summer hols though (if his mum will let him stay out late)

    The “woods behind nationwide” is a bit misleading. It’s in Croft park opposite the entramce to nationwide, to me it’s more like “the woods in front of nationwide”. The trail is approximately 3 mile long, if you rode it 3 years ago and didn’t think much of it come and try it out again, you might be pleasantly surprised.

    Oh, and I agree with Mr A. Every town in the UK should have something similar!
