It does make you think of the internet buzz before the olympics of how the UK has amazing forests, hills, mountains and why do we need a man made bland trail built on a farm...
It was an OK course and it worked well for TV, it's good that they are keeping it open. I think keep our forests and let use use them it a more worthy petition.
Exactly. It was a made for TV course and was dull, dull, dull. Why not just ride on a canal path, offers the same thing. The whole point of mountain biking is its supposed to take you into the countryside, not bring a pastiche of the countryside to us
in some sanitised, bland, McDonalds style way.
I'd rather see money and time pumped into areas of the country that need the cash, visitors and help - not some farm that was perfectly viable before the Olympics
Whacked that nail on the head.
