Anyone on here ridden Danbury at all? Im reasonably local so wanting to know what ill be in for if i head down there.
Also (apologies if its a stupid question) but i'm assuming it's free?
Danbury is free, but you must park in either of the two car parks rather than near the top of the runs as it causes trouble with the locals and could end up with the dedicated mtb area being taken away again. The car parks are free but there is a box for donations that go towards the trust if you want to throw something in there.
As for the riding - as with anywhere you'll want to roll down the different runs first so you don't get caught out, even if you've been before jumps and bits can be different to a week before!
But basically you can ride the whole common (both sides of the road), but most people ride the area set aside for us. Runs are short and most take in a bombhole or two on the way so just get used to the drop-ins of each otherwise you could end up dropping to flat from quite a distance.
ride your bike like a kid whilst you still can
