My own track

Just thought I'd let you all know that me and some friends of mine have recently managed to build a track in Whittlesey out of mud. If anyone would like to come along to it feel free. I'll try and get a picture and a map up here sometime soon should you wish

I love a bit of grasstrack. Just wish I wasn't a fat bloater so I could take more than about two laps

That sounds like a brilliant idea. How did you do it? I want my own track, too. In the summer will it dry out so that it's a hard surface which would be conducive to track/fixed gear loops? Post the pictures soon.

The old flat track in Wangaratta Australia used to be dirt and was incredibly fast. It was surfaced with concrete in the 80's and is still quick, but a number of people I know claim it was faster when it was dirt.
