Were you there and have a story to tell?

I can get to a ride here I have been wanting to check this out in the day so I know whats what with this ride.

May only do two hours though.

Great ride today guys. Many new tracks for me, and some very tough hills. After a couple of weeks off the bike it was prefect training for the doctor.

I would still like to understand what that gate is doing at the wild flower garden though, from what I can see both sides are public right of way.

it a while back, apparently something to do with keeping dogs out of the gardens as there had been a couple of instances of attacks on both people and wildlife.

I haven't been in there since it was locked, can you get through / around it on your own or do you need two people to get your bikes over?

Fantastic ride today I really had a blast good mix of trails and hills and hills and hills thanks for the grand tour Rob.

Hi mrsoldfart
