Agreed, this is the 'Downhill' that more riders than any other will probably enjoy, lots of speed and not too much in the way of tree roots. Well nothing in the way of tree roots as I remember. biggrin.gif

As soon as anyone sets it up I'm in. agree.gif

Would have thought it was a 'Summer' ride anyone done it out of season?

Well the 1st dates for uplifts at Moelfre as listed as march which suggests its not really suited for winter riding or no one wants to ride before then, and if you remember the very top was just grass where jack was dropping us off, so i wouldnt think he would like to be churning it up if it was wet. Id definitely be interested in any uplift Richard if your thinking about organising it and it wouldnt hurt to sound Jack out about how winter ridable it. I think it would be pretty well drained myself think.gif

I've not been in the wet but I'd imagine taking into account other factors too (e.g. parking) that Moelfre wouldn't be much fun in winter?

I've been to Molfre in the winter loads of times, Jacks easy going so he doesn't mind about the fields getting churned up, put the money in his pocket and there's no stopping him!

The track runs good in all weathers. what you have to remember is that it's very open at the top so there's no cover from the elements, which makes it probably the coldest place i have ever been to in the winter. Sitting on the back of a tractor with an icey wind hitting you is character building! smile.gif
