Check out this creative line that’s been built into a drainage ditch up at the Skills Area at Lee Quarry. Tight turns, again and again – brilliant. I’ll be using that line on the skills days in May and June. It’s great cornering practice. You really have to ride the front of the bike, in an elbows out style and pump the turns to get down there with any speed or style.

Below: Grand Canyon, Bacup style.

I was up there again yesterday scoping out good places to use for skills days for the “getting into mountain biking” / “been riding a while and ready to progress” levels of riders.
