Sorry, I live in 'go anywhere you like - there's no trespass laws' Scotland, where we're surrounded by man-made trail centres for mountain-biking. Then I found this secret trail almost literally in front of my house. For some time I wondered about where it went - it leads out of shot, down a steep hill and onto less inspiring double track, but it make for a great 20km loop for when I've got 40 minutes to spare.
Thoughts and prayers.

Good to see somebody riding their bike on an actual trail instead of a housing estate.
Why retro? Because you never forget your first love.

Nice piece of single track. Similar to some trails near me but mine only go for a mile or so. :( Too many roads and houses in this part of the world. :evil:

Nice picture quality as well, you must have a pretty good camera.

I've been put off mountain biking recently....my mate hit a tree at roughly 30mph last month and snapped his patella in half.

He's still bedridden...his missus has to make him a flask of tea every morning!

However, it has meant that his Playstation has been brought down from the loft....
