The next place on our list to visit was Dalby Forest after hearing a fair few people say how nice it is we decided we’d check it out for ourselves.
Another cool thing about Dalby Forest is that the old rallying championship used to be held here and my uncle had witnessed a few of these events in the 80’s among which had the Group B cars competing, I am massively jealous as they don’t hold the rally here any more.
The facilities at Dalby are fantastic as well, there is a fee of £7 per vehicle but it is worth the money as everything is clean and well laid out, there is a nice cafe too and a play area for the youngsters.
On the first trail we noticed straight away how soft and smooth the ground was, being made up of mostly what looked like sand. This made riding very comfortable and fairly predictable which helped you carry good speed along the trails.
Other points of interest in the forest were the dirt jumping course and race track for bikes. I had a quick go but I’m nowhere near confident enough to start getting any air on my new bike yet. This dude had no problem with getting some air and styling it out a bit too.
There were also some fantastic scenes along the majority of the trails, I couldn’t capture loads of them as I was concentrating on my riding this time in order to increase my stamina, I did capture a couple of the nicer scenes we came across which are below.
I’m already looking forward to going back again as this is one of my favourite places to ride so far.
