It’s not often that I agree with trails being sanitized, but this time I’ll make an exception. Cow Shit Alley has been resurfaced and it’s ace.
Cow Shit Alley is the access lane from Bath Golf Club to the Bathampton relay transmitter. For as long as I can remember it’s been a quagmire of cow shit and piss, and occasionally a bit of mud thrown in for good measure. Even in the middle of summer it never really dries out, it just thickens up a bit. It’s wasn’t actually that bad to ride, but you took your life in your hands risking all sorts of nasty diseases from the crap you have to ride through.
It’s now been resurfaced with a bed of gravel and stone and is a nice fast run into the proper offroad paths into the woods.
