The under 16 event has already happened, last before the 2014 rumour was they had moved a digger in, or some other machinery?

Sent using the force...

Theres a small write up about Hadleigh in this months MBUK chaps, have a read in there.

Apparently there will be 4 levels of ride, like most trail centres. ;)

Just heard from them, Architrail have/are building the trails and according to the architrail website

"Architrail compiled designs for legacy options, including green, blue and red trail and a complimenting skills area."

<fingers crossed> they build a blinder, shame there is no black, 4x or freeride though that would certainly put it on the map as the place to go !

I see on the CC FB page theyve replied to questions from me and Jon, it's still unclear what will be built but as Jon suggested, perhaps they could visit Chicksands, Aston Hill, etc to see what is possible (as opposed to just remove some rocks and leaving a pretty dull track). Does look its 2014 though.

I'm riding it on the 15th December! MSG are selling guided passes for £45.

Unbelievably excited. Just trying to decide what bike to take.....

I believe pn the guiding rides they just fo sections (as oppossed to the whole track) at a time so you may want a long travel dh bike to deal with the big rocks.

I'd find a resting point :).......i.e. when I collapse.
