    Great, I'm +50% done welding so the Disco will be ready :)

    Will be good to see that big Ol' lux flexing through the twisty bits :D

    Also good to catch up with old friends, will your wife be bringing the series 1 out to play?

    Should be the 6th. A Hilux comes over from Germany for badmington horse trials so we fit some lanes in for her.

    That section is only about 3miles long.
    2 other sections may be affected as they link up. But wilts ROW update changes quick.
    Most of the ridgeway towards Oxford is now closed to motors.

    Think last year when this section was closed we still had 52miles of green laning between broad town & malbourgh.

    the sun is shining & May will be here soon this is when I start going out as most restrictions cease.

    Good dry day out. Plenty of lanes.
    Wiltshire council have repaired some of the lanes with old road scalpings by filling in holes & removing ruts then back filling.
    Few bikes out & 2 motors tagged on to us down 1 lane.
    Some new sign post have appeared

    Nope. It's chalk you are either going up & sliding scrambling for any traction or coming down like a sledge.:eek:

    Looks like you need branch cutters to protect the windscreen

    I blame the cyclist/MTB. Lazy freaks are not using it often enough.

    Used to be able to fly down there. Now you ride so close to the barb wire fence it's scary st speed
