Bill’s Ragley Blue Pig and my Prototype Ti on Rooley Moor Road

This week I went on a site visit with Tony, Bill and Steve – Lancashire County Council Countryside Officer, Pennine Bridleway Ranger and Rights of Way Officer respectively. They are also mountain bikers and right good blokes who are working together to create top notch new trails for us to ride, that link in with the existing bridleway network. They are also working to put in new sections of bridleway. I like these guys.

“Ha, ha, I get a GPS and all you get is a bit of paper”

We rode the route of a proposed trail that links the Pennine Bridleway down to Lee Quarry. Including all the downhill sections of Lee Quarry it makes a great, long descent. We also hacked around the rollers and spoil heaps of Crag Quarry following what will be a red and black graded route that will be finished by March 2010. Expect berms and drops with plenty of flow. Over the winter there will also be a new section of red route built and a whole new skills area created at Lee Quarry. Great Rock will be running skills days using all these venues. WOOP!

Steve rides this well shonky singlespeeded old Kona rather well

Bill gets a company Ragley Blue Pig and a Land Rover. I think Bill wins.
