Good stuff. How was it up there last Monday? I thought about heading up there but decided that its be heaving so went out on the road bike instead and fried!
I rode Cannock in the Saturday and it rained! Looking at your pics, I chose the wrong day.
It was rammed mate, as we pulled into the car park the wardens came out and ended up stopping people and made them queue it was one in one out jobby! had we been 2 minutes later we'd have been waiting a while.
The trails were busy, until you got to the bit after the railway crossing, where it just seemed to die off a lot.
There were a lot of diversions on and it was a very very hot day!
I cannot believe how much climbing there is on the trail though, and it really doesn't seem to be rewarded with much descending. Black sections were Good though.
