I think you ride beyond the performance edge of most bikes because I cant get a Y-Frame or any other to drift unless the terrains loose.

Saying that if you stray from the trodden path on the upper slopes of Spooky Wood at GT then your straight into loose gravel. I love it when the rear drifts through lack of grip on gravel, ZZ didn't like it at all :lol:

TK, whits Tentsmuir like these days, I've not ridden there since 1995 :shock:


It is a good day out - if you have a picnic on the beach, do a little cycling and fly kites for a bit. A few sections of swoopy single track but it is more of a fast forest fire road ride if you want any distance, with the flooding and wet sections I'd struggle to get more than 3 miles of continuous single track though.

Great place to take the kids as it is flat overall.
