"I did the ride on a decent hard tail and suffered blurred vision on some of the rapid descents! This trail is definitely better suited to full suspension bikes.
This is still a great route though, with some very nice technical sections as well hell for leather blasts. The new section at the end ("Pins and Needles") reminds me of watching Kick Start as kid- much fun was had (but I would think twice about doing this section in the wet without body armour!!).
The facilities at the new visitor centre are fantastic!"

"Great ride, with mixture of technical descents (rocks, mud and roots in abundance). Climbs short and steep on fire roads. A bike busting blast!"
