firstly, its thetford, in suffolk, its flat, everyone with a vague idea of our country should know this so those who turn up here expecting massive climbs and descents needs a slap!
thetford is great if you want to work on your fitness while still riding a fun trail. we usually park at brandon country park as opposed to the high lodge purely so we can ride the beast twice (the best decent at thetford) as we follow the blue up to the start of the beast!
the red route is the old black called the lime burner and the recently downgraded blue route is called the beater trail, both are relatively flat but make the best use of what gradient there is, there is very little to challenge the seasoned rider but go with an open mind and i feel you will enjoy yourself, the faster you can pedal the more you will get out of the place. also there are quite a few bomb holes scattered around the trails, mostly around the lime burner loop, they are a nice distraction from the xc loops. alot of work to improve the red route has been undertaken recently, this includes rock features and fast bermy sections. certainly makes thetford a bit more fun. they have also built a very nice pump track.
