- Trail name etymology
I don’t know who del was or where the stump was either.
Del was the manager in Ralphies (Ralph Colman Cycles) a few years ago (the first Derek not the second) he clipped the stump and fell off breaking his collar bone. The forestry people did some harvesting and trashed the original Dels Stump route.Posted 6 years agoplecostomusMember
Washing machine and whipper snapper hidden away in the woods around BYC I built then too. Then there’s pink sick bear after a family carpulled into a lay by on the a5 with a child giving projectile vomit leaving a pink bear behind. The bear sat in the lay by for a while getting washed in the rain he now sits on a stump at the top of the trail named pink sick bear.Posted 6 years agomattjgSubscriber
A heartfelt plea to whoever set up the ‘Telegraph Row’ Strava segments on Holmbury Hill:
that trail is called Telegraph Road. The theme for our old trails is song titles, yeah? (A long time ago, came a man on a track, walking thirty miles with a pack on his back …)

The Flint Terror as very, very fast and lots of tyre shredding flints.
Poo Hill, so named by Mrs Ming as it was covered in sheep poo and went on for far too long resulting in much swearing at me by Mrs M.muppetWranglerMember
Only named within our riding group of the early nineties was ‘man/boy hill’ It was a loose, chalky, steep hill in the Chilterns with a fence to your right and prickly bushes to your left. The naming was simple, make it up without dabbing and you will be a man my son.Posted 6 years ago
