Chopwell may be small, but dig deeper and you will leave with a massive grin!

Wether you want to smash some climbing in, steep sections or session with a local. You will not be disappointed with what is thrown in front of you.
Bad Points
Static shock

Good Points
Whilst there are only two official, maintained trails there are a multitude of bridleways to take advantage of if you know where to look, or wrangle a regular for a guided tour.

A good mix trails from all weather surface to natural mud fest, flat, flow and steel technical sections.

Small, but a good amount of gradients mean a couple of thousand feet climbing in 8 miles over an hour, and never too far away from the carpark.

Also a rather excellent group of people on a Thursday night for regular night rides if you have lights.
Bad Points
No toilets or other facilities, but everyone poops before the leave the house, right?

Plenty of shops and garages on the way for for and drink, though

I wouldn't want to go here every weekend, but if your pushed for time there is still fun to be had here and there's enough hills to keep your fitness up.

Very close to Newcastle, large enough to make a morning or an afternoon of it, good bit of technical north shore to improve riding skills.

For a first time trailer, the red was a great entry to trails, surprisingly, for something with a fast technical rating - even if it was in the dark!
Maybe I wasn't as incompetent as I expected!
