I had a quick look on google maps to look at one of the tunnels to see what it was like on there as it was muddy at the far end, dodgy on the bike. I want to take pics from the other end next time as I didn't even notice the wood work

Click on the link should give you a street view image

A couple of pics from today, didn't take many but this was the view from one road we travelled







We did a charity ride for a special needs school, took the back roads home but the ride also had some great roads, I must sort a new cam for the bike

I found a bit of footage from Sundays dirt ride


By the time I hit the main track there wasn't a lot of backlog on the hill climbs, There had also been some bypassed unfortunately to keep things flowing, I love hill climbs
