Good Points
It's the first time on Monday I was up here, don't think its been finished long, I thought it was pretty good, I'm only a novice on this kind of stuff, but really enjoyed the track, if I spent a bit of time up here, think I could get a few more skills and there isn't another mtb park close by without driving a while from here.
