    First stop, Church Bay, and yes, that is my “happy face”

    Interesting bit of “track”. What you can’t see (and nor could we), is the two ruts down either side, a foot lower than the center. This meant that when the bike gets “grabbed” by the undergrowth and pulled off course, you had no idea of where your foot was actually going to find the ground — or indeed “if”. We baled out after 200 yards and turned back. The undergrowth alone would have stopped a Land Rover, and no-one needs a broken ankle in that lot

    So we retired to a pub “with a view”



    I often think that with a length of rope, a support jeep, a couple of machetes and chopper cover, you can go almost anywhere on the Island

    Ah well — there’s always another day …..
    Thanks for sharing. It sounds like a great ride. Why a support jeep? Be the first to put on a front cycle rack with a wench on it and pull yourself out. Keep up the great adventures.
