Thetfords Black Route has been downgraded to a mild grey, as for the skills test, i suppose you have to show you can balance a bike and bounce.....
Thetford is good for thrashing round, and i enjoy it whenever i ride there, but i would love some of the stuff they have in Wales on my doorstep.
Tunstall is good, some nice stuff there, but its easier to get lost in than thetford! similar surface, and rolling trails, with some big bomb holes, and i mean big!
hopper serioulsy dont worry about being able to ride the black runs - theres a basic skill test at the start, and it really is basic, can you bunny hop, lift the front of the bike up, ride in a circle in a narrow path - at the end of the day the decision to actually tackle the obstacles is yours no one forces you to do anything.
I understand new dates are now on the website.... I have a great day when I went although we didn't get time to do it all, It has already improved my riding immensely I will go back and do the rest of the course.
I was gonig to do that one too, but IM taking my son to Milton Keynes for his first skiing lesson that day...
you dont know how right you are triple trouble and oak tree drop would be great fun on a snowboard..!
Narrow bars help get past people easier in tighter places.
