Long Mynd

This area is basically one long hill range crisscrossed with trails so you climb up one trail and ride down another and that's pretty much it. That said the variety of trails varies a fair bit from well paved to rutted mud-fests so there is plenty to keep you occupied for a day's riding. I based my ride from the 'Shropshire hills Mountain bike centre' at Marshbrook near Church Stretton and as well as having a camp site/bike shop and pub on their doorstep they pointed me in the right direction for a great days riding. http://www.mtb-shropshire.co.uk/

Good points:

Lots of places to start from with good facilities great decents

Bad points:

Can get busy with other trail users A lot of climbing

Would you recommend?

Long Mynd aka Sillit Bang, one blink and the trail is done!!

Hills???????? Do you like them lol I hope so as this is a climb like no other, long hard climbs, but the scenery is amazing!! so worth it, was gutted that the trail is over in minuets, it had you literally on the edge of your seat and needing new pants :-) but be a competent rider as one mistake could cost you a nice trip to A&E have fun and be careful.....................OnE LiFe RiDe It!

Minton Batch

Great facilities in Church Stretton and at Marsh Brook. The Minton Batch descent is great fun and the size of the area means you can ride all day if you want

Good points:

Minton Batch, Carding Mill Valley if you happen to be there when it is quiet.

Bad points:

The descents are fun, but depending upon the route you pick the climb back up to the top can be tough.

Would you recommend?

*Yes*
