Reviewed by: jile-o-flip ,  Downhiller

Summary:
Fast, Technical, Gnarly and Slightly Downhill (so you don't have to pedal)

Recommended Route:
Slightly to the left of the middle. Watch out for Cat's eyes, they slow you down. You come out of the start gate (your house) and start pedalling hard. Once you're up to cruising speed just tuck in and enjoy the ride. If you're feeling a bit crazy then try some small zig-zags. Don't go too large or the kerb will make you regret it. Other hazards to watch out for include drain covers, potholes, recently re-surfaced areas and stick wielding children.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Try warming up on the less technical cul-de-sac routes. Just remember to stop.

Reviewed by: Ooh my back feels so stiff , from Cumbria

Summary:
I had a mate once, who said I should do this route, even though it might be a bit extreme for me. Apparantly there are these wa**ers in cars who try to kill you, but I survived (just). I don't think i'll go again.
The trail surface is well extreme, it's covered in drain covers and dead hedgehogs which can puncture your tyres. Grannys provide good sport however.

Recommended Route:
You might have to do your own navigation, I can't really remember the route I was so scarred.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
ONE FOR EXTREME RIDERS ONLY,

Summary:
The ultimate mountain biking trail.
It is almost impossible to ride - technical, bumpy and loose. i rode it once on my brooklyn machine works 12' rear travel bike - this still wasn't enough and I crashed nastily into a curb. Don't even think about attmepting unless you are a seasoned professional.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
For major thrills but still technically challenging try a football field of if you're totally hardcore a hockey pitch.

Ridden Trail:
Every few months

Rate this review?

Reviewed by: Arthur C. Unt

Summary:
Yup, i have tried this one a few times. First time i saw it I though, sh*t i am gonna have to get me some travel. Came back a month later with 6" front and rear, but those gratings and potholes had me foxed. A real toughy!

Recommended Route:
Straight down the middle, engage any stray cats for extra style.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
may I recomend the road with the traffic signals and roundabouts. Be warned though, make sure you are totally proficient in mastering the convetional straight road first. The shear scale of the task is enough to put off most. Real sense of acheivement after bringing down the beast!
