 Slightly frustrating as Waze took me to the trailhead from the racecourse, not realising that the trail went back up where I had just come down.
Not the most exciting trail and pretty quick. I read that it was nearly a 2 hour trail, it must have taken me 30-40 min!

 I rode from the pub to the trail head which is a killer but is really the only way to get there. Great downhill section very fast but sadly cut in half by a gate. It almost worth riding it just to wind the golfers up.

 Parked at the top of the trail head. Fun ride, not tech at all. The sort of ride to bring your mates on when they are getting into MTB. Really fast bits, nearly killed a few dog walkers which is always a bonus. Watch out for the gates across the trail! Nearly had me off.

 Total waste of time! Can’t really consider this as an MTB trail and certainly not a red graded one!
