Rick's a good lad! Used to do quite a bit of biking with him back in the day!! When he was just an Orange agent from his house!! Still kicked his ass on my Cannondale though!!!
But yes i can understand if they're still developing it, that is unfortunately now the problem of Mabie Forest, it's a victim of it's own success??
Rick is now moving back to more natural trails with less man made stuff? Which to be honest is what we used to ride and that's what Mabie/Forest of Ae/ Dalbeatie et al were all about, then 7 stanes came on board and although i think it's done a lot for the sport and also for local tourism and economies in Scotland, I still love the original natural trails.
I'll certainly have a chat with everyone on our Thurs night biking night and see who's up for it??
I'd be on my newly built M4, all my other bikes are in Dumfries at my parents. No room to keep them up here..... unfortunately?
