Epping forest is one of the best locations for mountain biking in London, with nearly 6000 acres of forest stretching from Wanstead to Epping there are loads of trails that are suitable for beginner and intermediate riders.
None of the climbs are too intimidating, and with careful route choice some great descents can be found.
In the winter months trails can get quite muddy, this just adds to the fun.

Good Points
Large variety of bridleways and singletrack that would suit intermediate riders, with some areas that can be used to work on skill development.
Bad Points
Epping forest is on a ridge of London clay, this means that trails stay wet and suffer when the weather has been bad. The northerly parts of the forest do however dry quicker.
Finding good rideable singletrack is hard without local knowledge.
