Any one know if the area the used to be marked advance mtb area will still be rideable . And what about babymaker and the other dh runs and although it's a bit rubbish what about the jump gully....

babymaker and all other DH runs are still untouched not 100% sure about the advanced MTB area though.  Jump gully is still there I think but will be worked on later this year I think.

the Runs they have done look pretty decent, Sorrell did them so they should be decent if his other work is anything to go by. The Blue Trail is open but the red isnt finnished as yet, sometime in april the red will be ready and beaded in.

Hmm, looks alright, very trail centery though. I know James Evison, what the hell were they doing riding DH bikes there, must have been knackering!

if they keep the advance area open and just the new loop then this may work out  other wise it may ruin swinley (which is a shame as i have nothing but good memorys excwpt for the one time i dropped a chain on the FIRE ROAD back to the loookout.... stuPid chain dfevice......)all depends what the red trail incorparates

A total of 24km of trails apparently, and according to other sources most of the good ones are being incorporated

Looks good to, the trouble with Swinley is that nothing is signed and to ride there without someone who already knows the best bits is a waste. If they can incorporate all the good sections into one or two loops then the place will be an excellent venue.
Keep it foolish...
