Ever wondered what lies down that furtive, veiled chute, off the main trail? Ever contemplated taking a chance on the unknown, but then repeatedly sticking to what you know best, as it’s a dead cert? Sometimes curiosity leads you off the beaten track, encouraging you to try something new, something uncertain.
Countless times I’ve made this tricky decision, only to find myself underwhelmed at the bottom of said new trail, or in some cases arriving at a dead end and having to push my bike back out. Luckily, every now and then, when we put all our chips on the table and take a chance, it pays off dividends. The prize being in the form of a true gem. A new trail to excite you, for you to explain corner-by-corner to friends and just about anyone that will listen.
