BikePark Wales - Respect!

BikePark Wales is truly an amazing centre. I started on the Blues and they are fast, flowing, confidence building and it's hard not to take air. There is a definite Rowan Sorrell site and some of it is reminiscent of the Verderers in the Forest of Dean (in a good...

Biker friendly and close to Llandegla trail centre

I came here on a biking weekend to Coed Llandegla. They are situated in a nice town with a good selection of pubs, restaurants and they have a public car park round the back. The hostel has a kitchen, a dining room, a chilled out lounge, bike store, dry room...

Ace Place to stay by Antur Stiniog and Betws-y-Coed

The hotel is brilliantly situated half way between Betws-y-Coed and Antur Stiniog. Antur Stiniog is just a short 5min drive away. It has a bar and lounge for that we'll deserved post ride drink and a decent restaurant. There is a bike lock up and indoor facilities if you...

Antur Stiniog On A 6 inch bike

I came to Antur Stiniog having not done that much Downhill for years except a blast last the summer in the Alps. These days I mainly do technical trail riding focusing on reds and blacks. I has heard Antur Stiniog was progressive by nature and had heard only awesome things...

Stoughton. A confidence inspiring progressive DH track.

Stoughton Downhill is just passed the village of Stoughton at the end of the South Downs. The postcode in the listing takes you close to the car park but the car park is prob 100 to 200 metres before the end point on the sat nav. You can...

A great base for Lancashire MTB

My stay at the Parrock Lumb Cottages was for four nights and I had only plan on staying for three at the place but the place and the riding was so great I stayed in extra night. I think that says it all! There are a number of cottages...

Gisburn Forest - Simply MTB Heaven

This definitely now goes into one of my top ten. The route is clearly cared for and well managed so respect to the Gisburn Trail Builders, the PMBA and all the volunteers. I started at the Dog and Partidge by the bike shop and rode up the fireroad...

Lee Quarry Finally Conquered

I tried to ride Lee Quarry a little earlier in the week but after two attempts had to bail because of the snow blizzard conditions so coming back I was adamant to conquer it. You ride up from the car park straight up the hill. The terrain starts...

Quantocks sole rider ride

I rode the Quantocks having planned my trip with a map and compass from a magazine guide. It started off great and I was surprised by how exposed yet how awesome the views were. I loved the natural singletrack of which it seemed never ending. Some of the descents were...

Short, sweet and lots of it

If you are into mixing up your riding styles up then PORC has it. I spent a day on the 4X and doing a few of the downhill runs and really enjoyed it. It was a bit far from north London so unfortunately it cant be a regular...
