  • Deer’s Leaped

    Cycled for 2 hours 4 minutes on 30th August 2022.

    After much consideration, and Tim noisily scraping his bottom bracket on his first go, the new “Deer’s Leap” drop has been conquered. It was intimidating but I trusted my technique and emptied my thoughts. Springslade trails were running nicely and it was getting dark by the time I headed home!

  • Lunch Walk

    Walked for 55 minutes 52 seconds on 30th August 2022.

  • Bottled Deer’s Leap

    Cycled for 2 hours 22 minutes on 28th August 2022.

    First time riding since Deer’s Leap drop was added. The rock drop is a little intimidating, and after watching a riding buddy clip his bottom bracket, I decided against it today – then I kicked myself for the rest of the ride. There was a pit stop with a puncture, a push up a ridiculously steep hill and riding an old abandoned official trail in the opposite direction. We finished with the bottom half of café run, penny lane and the big drop over at Springslade.

  • Still overgrown with the addition of fallen leaves and puddles.

    Cycled for 1 hour 27 minutes on 27th August 2022.

    Starting out between Hadrian’s Arch atop Shugborough estate, I followed a trail down to Milford and up the old railway line to the top of Brocton Coppice. Down Helter Skelter and up the valley to Pepper Slade. A classic run down and then back up to the trig point. "Mars Landing" across to Strawberry Fields drops. Down Buller’s Wood and over to the shooting range tree drop trail. A climb up to Haywood Warren, across the ridge down and to the stepping stones. Finally, up Satnall Hill and down the high-speed trail to Shugborough.

  • Stepping Stones loop

    Crossed over on to Cannock Chase and visited the famous stepping stones and back via Shugborough.
