Wetherby MTB trails including the planned 27 mile Red Kite Trails and the Little Toe pump track can be found between Wetherby, Leeds and Harrogate. They come under the banner of the regional volunteer group SingletrAction.
In August 2017 they gained provisional funding and kicked off a consultation for their latest project the Devil's Toenail (see below).
Red Kite Trail
- The 27 mile Red Kite Trail which starts from Wetherby and is made up of a series of trails on existing bridleways. The volunteer team aim to waymark and produce a trail map of the whole network to help people explore.
Little Toe Pump Track
- The Little Toe pump track was complete in April 2017 and can be found in Millenium Field
- In summer 2017 they secured a provisional offer of funding from Sports England for the proposed project on the Devil's Toenail. The area is a wooded triangle between Quarry Hill Lane and the Harland Way (up and left from the marker). They aim to create a free recreation area for the community. As the project name suggests, the main feature would be feature packed bike trails for children, teenagers and adults - think Dalby, Stainburn and Rawcliffe Bar (all SingletrAction projects). However they want as many people as possible to enjoy it, so there are also potential plans for foot access, an outdoor education area for schools and youth groups, exercise equipment (pull up bars, dip bars etc), wood/metal sculptures, features celebrating the nature/History of the site and even an occasional Pop-up Cinema (at appropriate time/volume). Access on foot and bike would be from Quarry Hill Lane (behind St Joseph's) and the Harland Way. Any parking would be directed to Station Gardens car park. They are running a consultation here.
