Green lane reconnaisance - January 2014
 
Our second run out to find some more suitable lanes for the club - no photos of the first run unfortunately, but check out the video on the Gallery page. Lanes on the first run were a little on the challenging side, on the second run, some excellent non-damaging lanes were discovered for future runs and some damaging ones to avoid until significant repair work and clearing have been done.

First new lane of the day; a non-damaging track with great views.

Second lane was also non-damaging but muddy ruts and a heard of deer and cattle to negotiate before crossing a farm yard at the end.

Lane 3 was a firm easy track with more panoramic views.

Lane 4 may be a good one in dry weather, but too soft to avoid surface damage when wet.

The first of many fallen trees of the day on lane 6. Exceptionally wet and windy weather over recent weeks had taken its toll.

Lane 6 should be another good dry-weather lane now that the fallen tree is out of the way.

Lane 7 was walked but not driven due to undergrowth, may be a nice drive if cleared.

The 8th lane of the day would not suit those with concourse paint jobs! It opened out a few hundred yards after this section but will need a dead tree felling at the other end before it can be driven right through.

Some unusual fruit trees on the penultimate lane; this one was growing Lightweight wheel arches!
The 9th & final lane was a sunken track with well established trees leaving gaps slightly smaller than 88" 2As!

Another tight squeeze!

2A ready for a wash before starting another weeks work.
Thanks to Doug for navigating and photography with Nikon DSLR....

...And to Adam & Sam for coming along in the Lightweight.
