  • Got the full run up... did alright considering I was riding it pretty blind for the most part lol!

    Considering that cameras flatten out the terrain, I'm guessing it was pretty damn steep!

    sort of. I sort of contorted around the tree enough for it not to hurt too much. I was lucky the way I hit it that my body could bend around it, if it'd been an arm or a leg it would've hurt :lol:
  • Kowalski675Kowalski675 Posts: 4,412
    You're literally a tree hugger, lol. Looks like the back just lost grip and lowsided you?
  • welshkevwelshkev Posts: 9,690
    It was actually the front wheel. Just started to wash out on the wet mud and off I went lol
  • Kowalski675Kowalski675 Posts: 4,412
    My eyes must be deceiving me. I watched it a few times and thought the rear let go first.

    I've just watched in super stop start motion lol, I can see why you think that. ben brakes in front of me so I hit the rear brake, it's locked up and skidding slightly, then the front washes out :D
  • Kowalski675Kowalski675 Posts: 4,412
    Still hurt the same, either way, lol.
  • Kowalski675Kowalski675 Posts: 4,412
    Yup, still looks paiful from there, lol. I must ge losing my marbles, I read the catipon as Ken and Bev, lol. Looks like a nice little spot you've got for riding locally there.

    yeah, that's about 5 mins from my house, 1 of 5 trails equally as good 8)

    Nice. I have woods and moorland near me, despite living in a built up area. Can do a 25 mile loop door to door with only about half of a mile on tarmac.
  • Aye tis nice, fast and steep down there (so much so, I couldn't bloody stop :lol: )

    We need to get back up there for a day Kev! Snow next week, should be fun :wink:
