Riding the Bristol Slab
edited March 2011
I drive past the big slab half way down the A4 (avon gorge) once in a while and every time I think about riding down the thing. Has anyone done it? Got any tips on how to get access to the top?
Access from the bottom is behind a metal fence that looks pretty secure. There is a video somewhere on BR. I'd guess you would ride through Leigh Woods to get to the top.
I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
Yeh seen vids of Ashton and Hawyes doing it ages back, But not suer i see the point of riding it myself. looks to slippery when wet for my taste
Thanks for the info. Just one of those things I've got into my head. Might give a miss though if its been raining :shock:
Hope you can get out at the bottom! Dont really want to climb back up the thing.
