That ride last Sunday- Son-in-Law took a hand held Vid on his I Phone and shows part of the ride along the Bottom of the Downs. This track used to be MUD and was a Farm track for the big tractors. The ruts were 3ft deep and if you were fool enough to ride in the wheel ruts- Your shoulders would rub on the side of the ruts.
Thanks to the Conservation rules and Health and Safety- those mud tracks have been filled in with rubble and hardpack so the walkers won't get their boots muddy. H & S has taken the fun out of the Offroad rides now.
And as you can see- Autumn is late this year. No colours on the trees except dirty green.
