    I’m thinking of heading over there tomorrow but haven’t been there for almost a year; what’s it like at the moment? Is there any new sections of trail I should be looking out for?

    Cheers folks.

    Dry, dry, dry.

    There`s a new bit opposite the entrance to the tank trap.

    The Gorrick Enduro is running there tomorrow, so a large amount of the singletrack will be taped off.

    You could always enter and get a free tour of the good stuff.

    Oh crap, so looks like Swinley is out then. Guess I’ll head over to the North Downs instead.

    Tank Trap, from the Lower Star Post facing south (toward the mtb area) its off to the right on the third path to the left of the blue pipes. The new bit of track is on the left before the entrance to the Tank Trap.

    Is that the one at the bottom of the hill near the jump gully?

    No at the opposite end of that double track tho, turn right at the big grid near the jump gulley not left.

    Just do the Gorrick Enduro, it’ll be a good laugh, I’ll be in the 3 lap event.

    What sort of route are they gonna do?

    Usually it’s pretty much all of the singletrack within Swinley, although sometimes in funny directions, with a few bits of fireroad thrown in.
    Also some tracks outside the MTB area where you can’t normally go.

    Should be a 10 mile lap. I’m entering for 5 laps – did it last year and was the last finisher!
