After 1 ride, I'm pretty chuffed with it, the slack/steep thing really works. Climbs well and descends brilliantly.
The slack HA makes the steep stuff feel less steep and allows you to really attack stuff.

Yep – BP.
Best time to go? Anytime it's quiet.
Great for nightrides, but my favourite time is proper early in the morning.
Not had a run in with a ranger in ages as they seem to be very lazy and don't bother to leave their Landys at the entrance.
You get the occasional bit of verbal/dirty look from Dog Walkers who clearly think they own the place but to be honest most people are fine and it's such a big area anyway.
What are they going to do ban bikes? 😉
Having said that I would avoid riding there at 3pm on a Sunny Sunday.Posted 7 years ago
