Sandy Lanes
#1
Got chatting to the mountain board guys at perry today, they reckon sandy lanes (folkestone) is a good spot to try out, anyone been?

I think the trails are known locally at the 'Dagger' trails, think it might all be a bit bmx though.

Yes I have. It's mainly bmx dirt jumps, well there is a large section very built up, 6ft take offs and large gaps. The main dh run is about 3 mins long and very neglected, no one really rides mtb there any more. Typical story for most places in the East Kent! It also had permission issues. I've not been down there for a few years.

ok wont bother going then. managed to clear a line today at perry for the drop off the roots, then the small hip jump into the table top, nice little run but still a long way to go to join the runs up. still, was almost dusty there today so not going to complain while every where else is muddy.

Interesting, may have to check that out, good to know it's there at least... I don't do jumping so that aspect is of little interest but will be heading up to Newingreen etc one day and could combine with that.

I wouldn't bother, apart from the dirt jumps and the one main very poor dh run there isn't anything there apart from a dead straight bridleway that runs from the top of the hill near the barracks to Sandgate seafront just along from the downtown diner, near the pub.

yea, but to be honest it is a bit of an anti climax, probably because the landing is a perfect angle so if you drop off with a little speed the landing is hardly noticeable
