I must ride both and then judge which one is best for myself. Those pics/vids look wicked.

There were a lot of trees down and slips on kirwans? When we did it it was a pretty clear run down - about 2 or 3 large trees down (many of which were getting cut out at the time). But no slips that I can recall.

its been nearly 2 years since i've had a Croesus fix...i loved it...the climb was great...keeping speed up over the rooty stuff was the trick(and make motorbike noises helped), although there was parts you had to get off (although now i'm a better rider ....)
And the descent was loads of fun....fast and furious

keen to give Kirwins a lash too..it looks great.

I find the top section of Kirwans has more flow and leafy drift than Croesus.


If you wanted drifty single track Inzane, I should have taken you on the Britannia Track
