havnt been in long did about 28 miles today , really like the tyre :D i can now use a lower pressure so my fingers dont hurt as much now and theres plenty of grip in everything except mud . the front end is now lighter too

would have gone further but while on the road at the start of the 3rd lap i noticed i had lost a lot of pressure so i guess i picked up something along the road . there was enough left to get home but too little to carry on

ill know whether or not i can use the car when the mrs gets in

Err...cycle out on the exit road until you reach a T junction (you can go straight across as well but it's a dead end). Right takes you out of the pines, left takes you towards the Forestry comission offices.

Go left, ride down a hill, past the FC offices and out on a service road with a farm to your right. The road turns to a fire trail and heads dead straight into the woods.

Carry on on the fire road up and down the hills and you will eventaully pass a picnic bench on the right at the crest of a hill. About 150m after the picnic bench you should see a sign on your right which is the entrance to the dirt jump area.

Lower seat and enjoy :wink:
