I vaguely remember going there as a nipper. It was across the city though so a 'special trip' for a kid of 5.

Are you seriously going to tell us that there are 'too many uphills' in Norwich?

The eternal misconception, that all East Anglia is like the fens.

the top inch of ground is old dry leave bits so there is sod all grip but its a fab area to ride in...was very quiet and could hardly hear anyone cept the tweeties...lots of exposed roots so the downhills were just a touch pant wetting........could easily live there .

as for the "wheres the engine " gag....if only i got 300 quid each time i heard that.....fwiw it climbs really well cos i took it up the first hill(a complete sod ) without any worries. :D

looks good . last pic looks interesting , be nice to put in a couple little berms

ive seen a sticker on a dh bikes swingarm that says " if you ask me where the engine is , ill punch you in your face " :lol:

a little part of me dies when someone says pushbike , usually the part that would consider them a person worth listening to :lol: it always comes from those people driving the 2 wheeled cars you sit on top of , what are they called ? twisties ? twistgrip bikes ? something like that :lol:
