Had a look yesterday & i reckon its do-able - not fast - but i reckon you can roll down.
Hoping to have a go in a few weeks time. Full face helmet & body armour compulsory methinks. . .

Anyone fancy having a go at it? :D

Does anyone know that area very well? Could be a good place for a retro ride!

Its an AWESOME area for a ride. . . although, i dont think riding down the near vertical 300ft rock face of Burrington Combe is a great idea for the faint hearted!

Black Down is ACE. . . :D

Yeah, may be we could skip that on the ride.

So do you know the surrounding area well enough to lead a group of us round for a future ride out?

I'm off out now, but back online tomorrow night. Please keep this thread going! :D
