Blean in the daytime?
#1
Is it feasible?

I've only ever ridden it at night due to, ahem, path/trail issues but does anyone ride it during the daylight hours and if so, could anyone give me some pointer of rough areas to head for to avoid being bludgened to death by a crowd of binocular swinging birdwatchers?

Cheers

I find that if, with the carpark on your right, if you keep to the left of the main fireroad you'll have no probs, apart from the occasional lead-less dog.
I've ridden there in daylight for years with no problems apart from the affore mentioned woofers. Wink

Fantastic, thank you  8)

Looking at a gps track of the ground I've covered so far, it does look as if there's a fair chunk to the left that I've not been into, so I'll have a look round there.

Thanks again,

That the part we tend to stick to at night too.  Some sweet swoopy bits round there.

I've ridden all over in the daytime for years with no problems from walkers whatsoever. In fact i stopped to let an old guy + dog past on Monday and he stopped to chat for about 5 mins. As long as you stop to let people past or just give them loads of room everyone will be happy.

Top stuff, thanks.

I didn't know if people were a bit sensetive with it being nature reserve.

If you ride to the left you'll hopefully find some of my or Kent-trails built singletrack.You'll need to ride towards the Harbledown footpath area.If your after a ride tomorrow there's one at 2-00pm from the carpark.
