The Black should be for experianced riders and has drops/Jumps with technical features.

What deadpool said, but the ones at bedgebury are misleading as the red trail should really be a blue and the blacks a red. Just doesn't sound as cool or Knar  to say your going for a blast around a blue trail.
I do like ridding bedgebury still though  Smile

The trail gradings are done based on comparing to other local (FC) venues, there are no others in the SE and hence Bedgebury is classed as a red with the one black bit. Go to a heavily populated (trail wise) part of South Wales for example and a red there will be a lot harder.

One long shut bit just reopened at Bedgebury, two more soon, smoother these days but still fun for a blast and the quicker you go the better it is

Most regulars on here will do red Welsh trails with a fair few doing black ones as well (a number on here race downhill). Bedgebury is a good place to start if you are new, not that technical but you can ride it quicker and quicker then head off to Wales, hit some of the new blue trails there then onto the reds. There are never any bits which you can't roll so just be sensible to start with as you don't know what's coming
