Success

I had been planning an explore of Collingbourne woods for some time. It seemed like there should be some trails present and some googling and Strava segment searching showed some potential.

Using BikeHike I plotted a route around the forest that should take in the best bits and off I went. The route worked exactly as I had hoped and my time was spent riding rather thant figuring out which way to go!

It was sloppy to say the least but though the NS Bikes Surge is steel it certainly isn’t heavy and the WTB Vigilante/TrailBoss combination actually cope quite well with a certain level of mud.

It never ceases to amaze how parts of the same forest can be dusty in one spot and sloppy in another. However, it makes for a pleasant surprise and keeps you on your toes!

Can’t wait to have another ride of these woods with MB Swindon and also give that gully a few goes!
