I love it. I used to ride bridleways etc and be a bit sniffy about 'trail centers' but I was converted about 3 years ago.
It's changed a lot since they built the man made trail last year. Before that most singletrack was widened deer runs and was brilliant. There was this old guy who used to spend his days up there cutting the deer runs (you can tell the ones he cut as he used to mark them with yellow or stripy red tape) but I haven't seen him around for a while and some of the stuff he built has been used by the 'official' trail builders
as uphill climes.
I love twisty stuff through trees and once you know the pines you can ride like that for a good 2 hours.
Single speed...18:32 is best and there is nothing in there that really requires suspension.
Lots of people on 6 inch rigs in the carpark with no mud on them
Yeah, the Grantham canal will get you to Nottm, but carry a couple of inner tubes with you as they cut the hedges regularly and you might need to hit the road a few times as you get near West Bridgeford.
Look out for the war memorial farm on the hill and the line of Poplar trees..eerie!
