Been invited down to Bedgebury forest next week for some singletrack action, just been on the website and they have a fair few miles of routes but sounds like its more focused towards family riding rather than any decent trails.

Anyone been? Is it worth the trip down and the £8.50 car park charge?

Cheers all.

The £8.50 is extortionate, but the trails are good fun but you will need to do multiple laps to get a good ride in. Just over 7 miles a loop.
a bit of everything there.
If its wet, its really wet, but still rideable by all acounts? we went in the height of summer though :)

Cheers for the link karve (i really should search the forum before posting up!)

just checked out some of the videos on you tube, doesn't look like there's anything to challenging in the way of trails and jumps but looks like fun anyway.

Riding there tomorrow so will let you know what the conditions are like.

There is a place you can park for free which is right on the single track route, but you are the opposite side of the trail from the normal car park, so no bike wash or cup of tea at the end.

Let me know if you want directions and I'll post a map.

Cheers,

Phil.
