- Sherwood Pines Night Riding
Maybe not all friendly Pook, a quick “evenin'” wouldn’t go amiss, but I did see half a dozen deer whilst driving out plus a couple of Tawneys. Didn’t see any ghosts but some lights look a bit X-Files-ish from a distance. I was just a bit concerned about other riders as I’m not always in full control in the daylight, never mind after dark.Posted 6 years agojamesMember
” have seen the “Sherwood Pines club” going in the wrong direction at night”
I’ve ridden with them (the shop meet wednesday lot?) in the light on an evening. Can’t say now since there seem to have been a fair bit of repair when I last went, but it used to ride better the ‘wrong’* way as the climbs, sorry ‘rises’ were a bit scrabbley (from all the braking the ‘right’ way) and the ‘downs’ remained smooth
*I think I’ve ridden quite a few sections that were singletrack before the waymarked route went in on top of it, restricting direction?
“you’re not riding it fast enough. Or something”
Rode it last (having not ridden there for a while) in early december, was still fairly dry, still had the summer dry tyres on the XC HT. Keep up the pedalling**, commit in the corners (a bit) and lay off the brakes and for the mostpart*** it really suprised me how well it rode (right way round)
**I realise a good dose of pedalling doesn’t seem to fit with many peoples idea of a good trail. It doesn’t with mine mostlyPosted 6 years ago
***Yes, there are still quite a few fairly dull sections I admit
