To those buffoons who can't ride nice switchbacks at cannock (mild rantette)
almightydutch the trails in question have been there for over 10 years so in your mind it’s fine to destroy them for everyone else?
there is only one to settle this
Who do you think you are, Jo Burt?
I’ll take that as a compliment as I rather like the young chaps work……..so there!Posted 6 years ago
So in your mind Tazzy these 10 year old trails are protected are they?
Some kind of covenant to keep them in their original state?
Fight….behave and grow up.
I remember building what us locals called the ‘BMX track’ up the Chase circa 1985(i suspect you were still in nappies)…sadly these are no more. Although some of it is still used as part of one trail i know. Does it make me sad that our BMX track was ripped up and made different…ofcourse not. Changing the scenery and routes is what makes Cannock Chase so good IMO. They manage to keep the forest evolving.
Same goes for when the fell an area..does this also constitute to wrecking the area/trail and will they have their scrotums ripped apart by mythical creatures.
Same also goes for the start of FTD…are you gonna nip down to the FC and feed them all to Werewolves as they have changed the entrance to Section 1.Posted 6 years ago
I agree, the chase is full of evolving trails, but to take something nice and fun and turn it into a straight line and to damage trees with a saw to get your bars through is a retrograde step IMHO, but you are entitled to your opinion

I agree, some delicate a fine handling trails are needed to balance the dh routes of the world that are built in far more suitable places than cannock. Finesse and bikehandling rather than just holding on a steering.
Would the shallow graves cause too much trail disruption.Posted 6 years ago
I can only assume that some riders of super slack angled gnarr machines with their stupidly wide bars have found some of the lovely off piste bits on the chase, as some tools have made huge motorways through a lot of lovely, tight off camber rooty switchbacks that were beautifully made by deer, mother nature and some talented trail pixies many years ago to keep it sympathetic with the surrounding area.
IF YOU CAN’T GET YOUR DUMB ASS SLACK ANGLED GRAVITY SLEDGES AROUND A TIGHT CORNER OR YOU BARS DON’T FIT, COCK OFF BACK TO A TRAIL CENTRE RATHER THAN DESTROYING SOMETHING THAT’S BEEN THERE FOR YEARS!
IF I FIND YOU, I’LL GIVE YOUR NAME TO THE CANNOCK WEREWOLF,WHO WILL HUNT YOU DOWN AND MAUL YOUR SCROTAL REGION ON THE NEXT FULL MOON YOU TOTAL AND UTTER LITTLE COCK MONKEYS 👿
EDIT: IF I SEE YOU DOING IT, I’LL FEED YOU FACE FIRST INTO A BUCKET OF RABID BADGERSPosted 6 years agomboySubscriber
ivantate- the shallow graves would be used to fill some of the breaking bumps on FTD and monkey therefore ensuring that everyone is a winner!
Exactly what I would suggest but you got there first. Cannock’s problem is it’s sooooo easy for everyone to get to, it has so many visitors. What gets me is I can’t think of a single bit of trail on the Monkey where you’d ever be braking that hard to cause a braking bump anyway!
Quite agree on annoyance at people reshaping trails to suit their skills/bikes/mindset. Ride the trails that are there, don’t just butcher to suit your own tastes.
Personally, I’d forget the mild rantette and have a proper rant myself! 😉Posted 6 years agoMilitant_bikerMember
Are you sure it’s the fault of ‘slack angled gravity sledges’? Tyre treads should give them away.
One of the worst corner cutting riders I know is a proper fast XC whippet… One of the reasons he’s so fast round a race course is he doesn’t ride a fair proportion of it… 👿Posted 6 years agosinglespeedstuSubscriber
Quite a nice little rantette but you failed totaly in getting the riders of DUMB ASS SLACK ANGLED GRAVITY SLEDGES to bite hard enough.
Still a good start and i’m sure you’ll learn from your mistakes and do betterer next time.

I’ll award you an extra point for posting in the wrong forum though.CougarSubscriber
On the Cougar Sheer Annoyance Scale you get an automatic point for non-gratuitous badger usage, and I’ll give you +1 on that for the “rabid” modifier. Portmanteau swearing is usually an automatic point as well, but I’m afraid you left a space between “cock” and “monkeys” and it’s not a particularly creative juxtaposition so I can’t award it on on this occasion I’m afraid.
I’ll award you a point for accurately conveying righteous indignation, and having a valid subject (sawing out holes in trees) is worth another. However, you’ve got lazy use of capitalisation, and it’s all correctly punctuated and spelt. Good god man, you’ve only got one exclamation mark in the entire post! That’s just embarrassing, I’m afraid you’re going to lose a point for the complete lack of effort there. You didn’t even manage to invoke Godwin’s Law in your fellow posters.
I will however give you a bonus point for the werewolf, tied in with the scrotal mauling; amusing and creative. So, I make that four out of ten.
You had a valid point but made a poor attempt to properly froth about it. Better luck next time, as homework revision you must play Call of Duty online with 14-year old Americans.Posted 6 years ago
