Went over last night.
Didnt realize it had rained that much!
We headed out tward bagshot heath as the trails in swinley are pretty swamped.
The road under the railway line was foot deep in water.
Found some cool stuff just after the M3 tunnel. Just to the left up the hill after the tunnel there is a massive halfpipe/gully section with loads of differing drops with easy runouts.
Took a picture, but it was starting to get dark so quite blurry...Click to view attachment
The heath sits on a a pretty high hill. The woods are riddled with DH type runs, All pretty gnarly stuff. The XC stuff over near the B3015 (Vehicle testing area) is flatter.
TBH the conditions were far to wet to really check the area out, but it certainly worth investigasting on a dryer day.
On the waty back found the infamous M3 jumps. They look cool on a dry day. Has a series of berms that loop back on themselves.
Was far to dark to get a pic.
Came back via roller coaster and the dips in the bumps had 1-2 foot of water!
Stickler had water at the bottom of most of the bombholes. Nine yards was wet roots /puddle hell.
All the dust has washed into wet sand pits. Mark put a foot down and it dissapeard up to his ankle in sand.
Clogged cleates, grinding chaines, rasping brakes.
Had to clean and lube my bike at 11pm.
Hope it all drys for the weekend.
Its in a bit of state.
