I went for a quick blast at my local trails on Monday. It was a good day and I only saw three other riders as I was leaving.

There is a very minor crash, I do mean very very minor to.

Enjoy!

Lol Laughing ...whistles as well?

It's amazing how pathetic things look on camera, jumps look tiny, hills look not steep and huge crashes like this look like nothing. Shocked Rolling Eyes

Tunes aren't great. I just like having a laugh with the music.

Most of the trails at cardinham are still OK. A few patches have been patched. Hells teeth which is one of the red sections is as rough as hell. A fs would be much more suited and a bit more comfortable.
