That is brilliant, you can even see when we stopped for bombholes and mechanicals.

34.8 mph was recorded on the first part of the red route, easily done on this bit of the trail. I was on the SS freewheeling, legs could not go fast enough.

BCP cafe is very good, cakes are yummy plus they do hot pasties and breakfast baps. Service is a little slow a busy times. The trails yesterday were perfect, damp but not wet. If it is too dry at Thetford it becomes very slippy. Avoid High Lodge car park, it cost £7 to get in, BCP car park is free.

The only established route we did yesterday was the short loop on the red, the rest was bits we know or discover as we ride. The Green (family) route is 6.3 miles, Blue (moderate) 8.1 miles, Red (difficult) 8.1 miles & Black (v. difficult / technical) 10 miles. Nothing on the red or black routes would really challenge you unless you went too fast.

The first photo on this thread was taken at BCP (Brandon Country Park) cafe, right by the car park.
