Have just had a happy afternoon riding the Ridge Route several times with a big grin on my face. Despite torrential rain, the trail was well drained in most places and the surface held together well. Great fun if you like a fast, rolling ride with nothing too difficult. A few alternative split sections with some little jumps or drop offs would be a good addition for the future. Thanks for a fun visit (and the cake in the cafe was good too)
