Do you agree with the selling off of forests? In general, neither do I, but reading through the blog linked below from a mountain biker, I can understand his frustrations.
Now, I’m not really in to mountain biking – I prefer road biking, although the two carry their own dangers. On a road, you are subject to traffic and you have to hope that they spot you and that you spot them, but mountain biking means having to avoid trees. At high speed. Whilst slipping around on mud.
Near to where I live is the Brandon Country Park estate, which is apparently now up for sale. Elveden Estate is interested in purchasing it, and although I like to buy my Christmas Trees from that area, I’m not keen on the idea of the park being closed down to the public, especially if it means losing the mountain biking trails up there, of which there are many, of varying degrees of difficulty, for different riders.
So, if you agree with me, why not have a read of Suffolk Cyclist’s blog below, and maybe even sign this petition… http://www.38degrees.org.uk/page/s/save-our-forests#petition
