Just thought i'd post up some pictures of part of the route that's got me riding again its my little playground and i can spend hours on there just tooling around.

Miles and miles of trails with every variation in terrain you could think of from big downhills to lung busting climbs, also loads of technical stuff.

nah they will put up fencing , build a show home . put down a hardcore for a small carpark and leave a site office/canteen/portaloo for a site agent to sit in the office each day twiddling his thumbs while no houses are being built

whats whats happening over the road anyway

you will however be able to tell people in 20 years time "ere i remember when all this were fields " to the next generation of yoofs stabbing people in the ghetto of tomorrow
