Short video – Singletrack, Bluebells & Bombholes
yay! nice one mr cheese…
1;40 in the vid is the spot my mate had a hefty fall where his top burn half the skin off his shoulder and upper arm…
i think it is from there to the right you run along with the edge to your left, then through trees with a couple of drop downs. i liked that bit.
great place to learn to ride drops and to drop in.
from A12 take exit to Maldon/Danbury (A414), then up the hill.
from the first mini roundabout go right and follow on till T-junction, then left. trundle on till pub or CP carpark further on. then go ride.
lots of other bits of woodland about with 10 mins, each full of trails but you do have to cross some roads.
papermill lock is nice for tea and cake in the summer and a good climb back up the hill to the car….

Nice vid! Can’t think where those bermed bits are though. Looks like it’s changed since I was last there.
Love Danbury common, spent so many weekends there riding Treasure Island when I was a kid. We used to do trains of 10-20 riders all hammering it through the forest hitting the jumps 😀 brilliant fun

Treasure Island is alas no more :o( – bulldozed years ago.
On a more up to date note, new signs went up yesterday stating that it’s a SSSI and that we can ride there, but there is to be absolutely no digging of jumps, building new trails etc. Seems sensible and reasonable to me. Near the bombholes are more signs saying ‘Warning. On the steeper parts beyond this sign, you may encounter mountain bike activity’. that would seem to be endorsing riding there 🙂Posted 8 years agoMTB-IdleMember
s’nice. A well shot and edited video. Put it on full screen and sit close and it feels like I’m riding on the bike myself 😛
Good to hear AC/DC too. All mtb vids used to have rock tracks then they moved to rap and then blues type tracks a la Collective but they seem to be heading back to rock again. I like to edit a few videos myself and have used a few rock tracks lately too. 8)Posted 8 years ago
