Take a ride with the boys from Spokes Bike Shop, for a day riding the finest Staffordshire has to offer. A morning of dust followed by a thunderous downpour then left the trails super slick for the afternoon. Plenty of carnage and bails ensued along with multiple corners shredded and the odd wheel buckle thrown in there for good measure. Grab a brew, hit play and enjoy the good vibes beaming from what is such a good scene nestled just below the Peak District.

Track - Jurassic 5 - Doo Wop (The Influence)

 After what the guys have been through over the past year it's awesome to see this being shared around. We've got some great local spots and some great local riders and now a great shop to sort us out. Good work lads.

 Great video lads, that ball breaker was painful to watch. Do the land owners or other groups... care about trail erosion?

 @ZiggyRibetto: I know where Staffordshire is located...I was born in the UK. I was just asking a common question about trail conditions and land issues.

 @rivercitycycles: we build the trails so its as we please, if it gets f*cked we build another, its just a low key woodland, aint no trail centre to tell us what to do/not do Smile

 @tommowalker: problem with chase is if the features aint natural some sad bastard with a high viss will grass us up and get it shut down lol
  • + 2
 @jamiedub08:
This isn't the Chase but you do get the odd NIMBY dog walker causing grief here. Cut your berms deep enough into the vegetation though and at least they can't see them from the paths.

 Most woodland like this is owned by the Forestry Commission. They generally turn a blind eye unless there is a troublemaker dog walker or similar who enjoy making peoples lives difficult. It's usually trials on privately owned land that get flattened as the owners are scared of being sued in case of injury. Build it somewhere remote away from main footpaths and it's usually ok.

 @gibbon-on-an-orange: sorry, pretty much repeated what you said.
