after driving down some very windy country roads we found the car park and made our way onto the red route at daves start which is a cracking 1st descent that gets you right into the mood, we managed to ride after 3 days of torrential rain so were expecting mud..... we got it. the trails rode generally quite well even though they were saturated but some areas were just like a bog! some of the descents were slippy in places which slowed us down a bit which was a shame as i imagine at full pelt they would have been fantastic. after the 1st couple of sections you start climbing and it just seems to go on forever. the descent at the top of the hill is cracking and well worth the grueling climb. one section shares briefly with the downhill trails so you can imagine what thats like. you do get the idea that some of the descents here were built with downhill riders in mind as a lot of very fun sections. will definitely be coming back when hopefully a bit dryer.
