I’m a qualified MTB Leader and ex-professional cycle mechanic as well as a keen BMX rider. I have been enjoying exploring the local countryside on my bike. I was going further afield to ride off road until I decided to see what there really is ‘out there’ and started to explore the local area with an OS map.
I’ve been generally well rewarded on these exploratory rides, some times they have ended up with a bit of head scratching in a field followed by back tracking. Some times they have been done in the depths of winter with a head torch questioning my sanity. I have decided to share the routes via this blog, as I know there are other keen riders out there who may not know that these trails exist in the area.
