OK Back in the day... well, just 4 years ago really, we use to run mini DH of a Tuesday afternoon before XC and I've been wanting to start that back up as it got both sides of the the club together for a bit of fun as well as offering a bit more of a regular thing for the DH riders and a good light option for beginners.

Trails like Acid Bomb and Fordy's were modified sections of the XC loop. They weren't that steep or Technical but were a bit of fun.
.

It will be $5 for club members. $10 for non members + day license fees.
