One of the  big surprise tickets of this trip.  This  video was shot on my last run of my last day and despite having already ridden  almost 40kms that day I wasnít afraid to let rip on Be Rude Not To 2.  It is a  REALLY playful track.

The open  section of the trail at the beginning is fast and flowy, I donít recall it  being as bumpy as it appears on the video, it was far smoother than Challenge (which I didnít enjoy at all  on the return visit due to all the braking bumps) so maybe a lot of the jerking  is camera movement.

The trail  continues to descend into the trees for a short period before turning XC with a  mix of short but easy climbs and fun flowy sections.  The trail has its fair share of roots,  boardwalks and some playful bumps and jumps to enjoy.  But keep an eye out for them because they can  appear out of nowhere.

Be Rude Not To 2 starts at the big intersection at the base of Hot X Buns, the start of Direct Rd and where Pipeline and Red Tank Roads join.  It runs alongside Red Tank Road popping out just short of the intersection of Nusery Rd and directly opposite Mad If You Don't.  There are alternate exits for The Wash Rd that lead onto the Pig Track or Lion Trail.  Alternatively climb back up the Wash Road for a second run or the  alternate route down Dragons Tail.

I highly  recommend this trail.

This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
