got to say, some very mixed reviews when riding here. heard some people say amazing and some say awful. decided to ride and make my own mind up

set off fairly early so we were the only ones out there at first, was such a peaceful place other than the air force practicing overhead! stopped a few times on the climbs to watch (any excuse for a rest) first couple of sections of single track didnt seem to flow that well so started off thinking it will be a long awful ride. carried on regardless and then got to the ffastis un, dau and tri sections. wow. flew down them like a man possessed!! absolutely brilliant. that put a smile on ,y face for the rest of the day.

carried on to loop 2 and even though there was a long bit of fire road and a forestry diversion down some more fire road i enjoyed that. loop 2 felt a bit more wild. some trails were so overgrown had to go through at walking pace! reported a section of damaged boardwalk also. really enjoyed it still, even the section with all the massive rocks that went for ages. good technical section that flowed really well.

back onto loop 1 and the last few sections were awesome. carried so much speed and also needed to be on my toes for some bits as well. got to the car park absolutely buzzing and didnt feel like i had just rode 30km.

well worth a ride and will certainly come back again
