Sunny saturday morning

Fridays long drive over we set up camp and drove the 10 miles back to Llandegla forest.
I would rate the ride 6.5 out of 10. It starts with a long slow blue/red fire track style climb that just keeps going. It would be a good warm up if our legs weren't quite so tired from the road trip down. Finally we cut off onto the Red only route. Switch back turns, jumps, burms and Mikes' brake lever bolt decides to come undone. A quick bodge later and we ride on, switch backing and climbing our way to the the main black route.
FAST MODE ENGAGED. Flowing tight 2wheel drifting corners, huge burms, and jumps a plenty. Its a shame most of the jumps were more like lumps, giving you a choise of landing to flat or high speed pumping like a crazed olympic BMX racer. Unfortunately like life in reverse with the downs come ups, i blame tired legs after an early start but eyeryone was waking, except Henry Mr 1001 gears who bravely peddled on.
Now mixing between Red flat sections and black climbs and with only 50minutes untill the car park closed, the paced picked up, all thanks to a shot of adrenalin in the form am Ae line style jump park and push up path. A large burm throws you into doubles and table tops one after another and with the easy push up it was begging to be sessioned all day. But now with only 30mins untill the car park closed and Dan starting to wheeze for his inhaler we were forced to carry on. 20minutes later muddy and smiling we packed up the cars and headed back to camp for food and bed.
We woke this morning to sunshine and Cranstons cumberland sausage thanks to Mikes mum. So with both us and the cars fully packed we're En Route to Glyncorrwg. Whoop dang gotta love the sunny hours road tripping.
