No one's going to make you commit to anything and to be honest, there are plenty of solo riders ...

Hey Roger, is it safe to leave the brakes and 9-inchers at home for this one, even in the muddy wetness? Is there one set route or will there be options? Uplift? Any info yet on Llangollen?

A good, satisfying berm will be shaped in a way that you are changing overall direction without loss of speed. There is th...
