    It's good Maggot, but I thought the first time I saw it with the wind whistling, made the descent seem a little more 'hairy'!!!!!!!!!!!

    You're probably right. I've changed it :eek:

    Holy-Moly Maggot!
    Guess you've done that before a few times, looks hairy from the warmth of my kitchen.

    What speeds were you kicking out down there?

    Who'd have thought it.

    I've done Cheddar Gorge twice. Both times by night on the Exmouth Exodus. I hate it. I really, really hate it. Like Foodie said, how fast?

    Whenever I watch footage on my camera, it looks like I'm barely cycling faster than walking speed. Since this looks fast, I'm worried about how fast it actually is!

    It was fast, probably 45+mph in places. 40+ in quite a few others!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bloody great fun, everyone should do it at least 3 times, once to get the feel, once to get the lines and once flat out :eek:

    and if you're really 'crazy' once more to see if you can go even faster on a new bike!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That was enjoyable maggot. How about trying it the other way - timed of course ;-)

    Will it take longer than four minutes the other way?
