Hi,

I'm off to FOD next weekend and would like to get some singletrack in. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I have seen the FODCA red route but it's only 3 miles...was hoping for something a little longer...

Cheers,
Paul

    Is that the singletrack at the cycle centre?
  • it's not a bad little track- has recently been 're-surfaced' and was like riding in custard earlier in the year- is ok now though. We often do it a couple of times and then do the downhill.
    I don't know any other singletrack round there

    they've ruined the fun rooty uphill with the re-surface though :( shame as that was the most challenging bit.
    We normally do the FODCA and then head over to the downhill runs as theres several of them, not hard to ride and great fun.
    to get to the top of the DH's push up the main route from the big jump up to the fire road. follow it round right, first left, and start where the fireroad forks.

    does this show anything?
