Trail Far Lap
Do you care more about 'fitness' than fun? Do you prefer talking about riding rather than actually being on the trail? Are you looking for an easy ride without any challenges? This is the trail network for you.

Devoid of anything resembling enjoyable or challenging, these trails succeed in making you simply pedal. While the tracks may be well-maintained, they are designed in such a way that a rider may completely zone out and miss absolutely nothing - because there is no excitement to be gained here.

The entire trail network is of a fundamentally flawed design. Hovering over contour lines means there's no climbing, and as a consequence there's no reward when you hit one of the short bursts of easy, flowing downhill.

In the end, what's the point of riding here? Very little. The black tracks are really blue tracks, the blue tracks are green tracks, and most embarrassing of all the green "tracks" are actually old/in-use service tracks. There is nothing at all to encourage riders to return because there's nothing really thrilling about these tracks.

Rode this earlier this year and would not recommend at all. Adding more turns doesn't make the ride more interesting.

Small tree down across trail, can ride over or around. I placed branches on either side of the tree to make it a small roll-over or a little kicker jump.

This flows on from the DeeJay east track. It also starts east and heads west. Most maps have this correct
