i haven't been to a trail centre for ages, i'm not the biggest fan of way marked trails and how busy they get, but as i mentioned in my previous blog entry i now get a day off in the week so decided to venture to the Forest of Dean.
glorious empty trails, without the stress of riders bearing down on you from behind or being held up on sections by those ifront. it was dry and dusty and the 27.5+ tyres gave a tremendous amount of grip and cushioned the very rooty course very well.
despite my thoughts of crashing and not being found i did try and go as fast as posible (a few strava PR's, go me!) and sessioned the little wooden drop offs on the free miners trail.
