Thetford Forest Red Route discussion
This is a discussion thread for the following file:
Thetford Forest Red Route
The Red Route for Cyclists at Thetford Forest, UK
I am a member of an enthusiastic MTB group called TIMBER. For more info, please visit www.timbermtb.org
At the time of writing the Red route has been closed due to trail upgrade work to make 2km of the trail more durable for the winter (and summer) riding. The work will continue throughout March and we ask that people please refrain from riding the Red Route for 3-4weeks after the work is completed. This gives the new surface a chance to bed in. Riding it too soon could mean the life expectancy of the new surface is reduced from 10 years to 2 years! Those of you who have ridden the first bit of the Tightrope section will know what happens if the trail is ridden too

Reason: To add extra info
As an update to riding the Red Route: It has now been officially reopened by the FC. TIMBER members have been sweeping the worst sections of the loose top layers... this has revealed a very solid foundation for the new sections... Ride it and enjoy!
