Dodging the Trees

A change from the norm today as I decided to give the roads a miss and instead get off-road and ride the Blue Trail beside Mary Peters track at Barnett Demesne. These type of trails are named singletrack as they are only wide enough for a single Bicycle.

With Trees left and right, rocks, bumps, mud etc you have to keep your wits about you to avoid a sudden impact. The trails are aimed at Mountainbikers but the Blue trail has none of the bigger jumps, rocks etc so is manageable on a drop bar Bicycle. Below is a video clip I recorded on my pass through the Blue trail, there are no big speeds involved unlike road riding but it is very technical made all the more challenging by a slow puncture on the front.
