I had a good blast around the trails at the weekend, this is one of the benefits of working away I suppose. Just thought I would post a few pictures up for those who do not go on face book.

If you do ever visit this place the blue route is the best really.

I loved it there when I went a month or two ago! Went several times, and blue is best for our retrobikes!

Good facilities, too!

Going back to the Forest of Dean next month, will probably go back to the centre again. Around 7 miles I think, the blue Verderers route. I could feel my confidence growing the more I rode it, going round the berms with little or no braking! Highly recommended!

Love it there Nick, also going to look at a house or two in the area, I hope.

I'll let you know when I'm going, maybe we can meet up.
