Phil Allum plans to spend the day playing on the waymarked downhill tracks and the unmarked Enduro stages around the Pedalabikeaway centre. If you have never ventured on the downhill runs before, but always fancied it, then now is the perfect opportunity. Likewise, seasoned FoD veterans are most welcome as well!
Although you won’t need a specialist downhill bike for this, a full suss will definitely be the most comfortable, and is recommended unless you know what you are doing. The Pedalabikeaway centre have some really good hire bikes; see their website if you are interested.
This will be a pedal (or push) up day, so legs will be required! The uplift will be running so that is an option if you are dead against pedalling.
We’ll start the day off with something to get you warmed up – Verderer’s final descent or Launchpad, for example, before moving on to others. Exactly what we do and in what order depends on who turns up. There is a full list of the trails on their website if you are not familiar. Some of the trails are smooth hard pack, others are pretty natural with lots of roots etc.
The centre has car parking, a great café, workshop, toilets and pretty much everything you’ll need. The car park is a pay & display so please bring change. It’s currently £3.50 per day.
Meet outside the Café for a 9:30am start, any questions please feel free to ask. See you there!
