Sunday I took a ride out to a garden centre a few miles from home and came back via a bridleway I hadn't tried before. It's pretty much pure clay (Faversham was once known for its bricks) so is sodden and slippery in the shade with rock hard ruts in the sun. The bridleway appears to have been regularly used by SUV's or farm vehicles creating six inch deep ruts. I found the pedals kept brushing the sides if I travelled down the ruts but I ended up in them if I tried riding between them at any speed due to diagonally crossing ruts.
Any tips on traversing this sort of terrain?
