    #66688 in Mountain Biking

A fairly straight downhill path, with spaced out drops created by large railway sleepers laid in the ground. You can go pretty quickly, but watch out for dog walkers (visibility is good though, so shouldn't be a problem)

There's a self-closing gate at the bottom, so be prepared to stop at the end...
