No way! I could've died!
Holy cow! That ain’t going to be sorted with a few gabions.
One of my routes goes (or went) over a shonky old cart bridge over a steep-sided wee ravine. Wednesday night it was there, Saturday morning it wasn’t. I’d have definitely gone off the edge if I’d hit it on a night ride, stopped about a foot from the edge as it was. Eeeek.Posted 6 years ago
couldashouldawoulda, I didn’t film it my mate showed me on his phone before we set off to ride there tonight, presumably his brother in law or someone with him filmed it.
the mrs reckons you would have been able to ride that one out.
I am seriously pleased that cliff didn’t hang on a few days and decide to go at half eight this evening, we’d have probably been riding along it 😯 , last Sunday there was no visible evidence that we noticed, that path was the same its been for every ride over the last 20 years or more!Posted 6 years ago
those ramblers that talk about the damage tyres do have got a good point haven’t they?
Woops – ’tis officially footpath as well 😕
(it was fine when we all ran smoke and dart, and even survived vertical pros for a few years!) A couple of years of maxxis high rollers wearing at it and look what happens! 😆Posted 6 years ago
My regular local route, straight from the front door, is ten minutes through the woods, all meet up by the lake, have a play, spin along the cliff path, pint in the pub then home. We did it Sunday on the last sunny weekend of the summer. 5 days later (and suddenly its winter 😡 ) We all meet up for tonights muddy night ride and my mate says “we cant go along the cliffs tonight the paths been re-directed. My brother in law was called up there Monday (the brother in law works for the local council surveying) ‘cos there was cracks appearin and this happened… -“
We rode along there less than 24 hours before 😯 !!!Posted 6 years ago
