Sunday 21st Feb
« on: February 02, 2016, 01:09:07 AM »
It's my bro's birthday Sunday 21st so we're thinking of going somewhere for a ride. Plan was FOD but there's only 2 spaces left that day so now thinking Black Mountains or Triscombe. I think the best black run at Cwm Carn is still shut so that's no go.
Anyone else fancy a DH day somewhere? Preferably with an uplift but not essential.

Yeh I'd like a ride/ trip up to the BM.

Is there an option to ride up?

Yay for black mountains then! Not sure about ride up Rob. I think you can but not sure if there's much of a way up.

How much is an uplift up the BM? I may be keen.

Click on the book now option for prices. 30 for uplift.

Rob; they do suggest a push up pass is 5 so I guess it must be possible.  Like I said though, I can't think of any good way up the hill so i'd suggest getting an uplift.

Yep Im in. Hopefully wont be too wet there!

Rob - the push is up the same as the uplift track. All I will say is the tractor struggles to get up it. That may sound like a challenge to you!
