Not 100% sure where we went, might have been the Cwth Games track? Thanks to Jane for the skills* & hints, really enjoyed the tracks & log* rolls. The group often stopped to allow everyone to have a go when there were difficult bits.
*Would have been better if I had have followed the skills instructions a bit better, going over one of the log rolls, not sure if I took it too fast or just didn't get the backside back over the back of the seat, but it dropped off more than I expected, and I went sideways, crashed into a couple of logs laying along the track. Fortunately, got the hand out and stopped the head from collecting one nasty looking stump (Jane said she was sure my head was going to collect it ). Unfortunately, took the brunt of the fall on my ribs. A bit battered & sore, but got up, assured everyone that there were no breaks . Continued on, but the pain in the ribs was a bit too much, so j9 kindly rode out of there with me. Been checked out, no breaks (phew!), just waiting for the pain killers from the hospital to take effect
Aside from this, it was enjoyable, I'll have to go back for the next one!
