Picked this up from Dave Bus's post on the DOAMB site, as far as I can tell, the bridleways will still be open with diversionary routes, it's just the crossroads with Stane St and Alsatian itself that's closed

Some good news, for those that fancy some singletrack descent back down off the Ranmore ridge towards Polesden Lacey. Rip van Winkle is nicely clear again following the recent logging activities at the start.

I did see some logging near the finish, but it's currently further down the bridlepath from where RvW ends. Not sure if they'll be moving back up the hill or not, no evidence (i.e. warning notices) of impending activity.

Infestation had a small tree down across the trail on Friday afternoon. Easy enough to get over, but I had to slow down to make sure I got my timing right. May need a company of Moles to shift, but will maybe take a look on my return home this morning.

There is a tree down (Face height) on the lower part of Wolverns Lane climb on route to Leith Hill.

It's ok if you on the way up, but could cause a nasty one if descending, also it's on a blind corner.

No Moles were harmed by it this morning but probably only because Karl had someone in front of him! :lol:

Infestation has another, much bigger, tree down across the trail. This one is definitely not rollable.

There are also some down across Alsatian, so be careful if hooning down.

Let us know when they're cleared. We managed to shift some debris last night, but these needed chainsaws :o

Infestation has been given the 'all clear' now. It's fine to descend at whatever pace you feel safe at, though I note I was 13s slower than my best this morning :o

Alsatian is also clear again, though I suspect it has been for some time.

Sweet and Short on the way to AZ had a tree down on Sunday, probably not dangerous but pretty solid.

Update on trees down on some of our favourite (and not so favourite) trails after last night's slip 'n slide.
Hogden Lane - big tree blocking trail half-way down on Polesden Lacey side. Had to clamber up slippery bank to get around
Collarbone - several trees down towards the White Down end, lots of blundering through the undergrowth
White Down - one tree down about half-way down (or up ;) ), easy to get around
Dearly Beloved - I think there were two big trees down here (so many trees down my dodgy memory can't cope). Again, easy enough to get around but don't expect to post any Strava PRs :)

Trails that were a muddy hell:
Lower half of Hogden Lane (Polesden Lacey side)
Pamplona
Alternative bridlepath through field to the right of Pamplona
(what was I thinking coming this way? The field climb was like Alsatian at the end of Dec, half a wheel forward for every full wheel's turn of the pedals)
Collarbone - I was glad to get off to walk around the trees

Hogden Lane is now clear again, though it's turned into my nemesis. Ripped my rear Mud-X on there this morning, thought I had left my glue at home, :( then spotted Tony's 'little green bottle' lurking in my pack :D The glue had the consistency of congealed snot, but it held the plug in ok to get me home in the p!55!ng rain. I think that's the second flint cut in three visits to Hogden Lane :cry:

White Down - tree is still down across the lower section, easy to get around, but be careful if descending at speed in the dark.
