I remember, many moons ago, on a summer evening; 3 young lads trying to re-trace the Scrambles course on a stripped down Capri-Scooter. One of them (Bartie1 !) took a wrong turning on the top of a very large 'Hill' above a very deep 'Hole' and ended up in a Hawthorn Tree. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Leather Jacket, decorate with shiny chrome studs (obtained from 'Plantys') 'Ice Blue Jeans' (Lee-Cooper-from Woodheads--) Winkle Picker Boots or Baseball Boots (from Tylers). . . . . . . . . . .ready to go

A shot of 2 stroke, in the tank with the petrol, gyrate the 'Bantam' wildly before you pull away or the plug will 'oil up' ( does anyone under 50 know what i am talking about) Watch out for the 'Rat Hole' At 'Clippo'

'Reverse Cone Megas', 'Rocket Gold Star',. . 'Tribsa', Norvin'. .. . .it all got a bit confusin' but the louder the better 'Slog-it' up Cucney hill and sail down the other side and into the Greendale Car Park . . . . . . . . .

I remember when i was younger going down Hills & Holes, we used to ride the bikes down there and play hide and seak with some good hiding spots :lol:

Not forgetting the old tramps which we used to think lived down there, people used to terrified when it got to dusk :lol:

Its a shame theres such a lack of places to ride these days, i've been on a little mission in the van today looking for more legal places to ride in the area, found 2 1 of which the council have shut down, still waiting for more info on the other one which is located just outside pleasly. I still go and watch acma races and its a great day out even if your not a motor mad person, it'd be good to see it become a regular family outing again in and around warsop :D
Then i could race without travelling to far.

I used to enjoy watching my little bro doing moto X up at the sand bowl. That was a good day out.
