The London 2012 MTB course at Hadleigh Farm in Essex has been opened for pre-booked public sessions. I went on one of these to ride the course after going to the woman's race, and boy is it so much tougher than it looks!

We rode the unaltered Olympic features. It will be tamed a bit in a few months before being opened to the public as part of a larger trail centre so I was glad I managed to experience it in it's raw state.
