Another Shropshire downhill track, this one is just around the corner from Hopton. The downhill track is fun in the dry but can be a bit tricky in places in the wet. There's also a blue xc trail (part of the Hopton network) in the wood that links through...

Short but great

The first time I rode this was when it was a special night stage on the 2010 Tran Wales, great fun. I have been back a few time since, although it's short you can combine it with a bigger loop up into the hills starting from the same car park...

Tidy trail tucked away in Wales

I visited on a pretty hot day in the summer and did the combined loop. Part of the single track was shut due to forestry operations was a shame so I'm keen to go back and ride it when it's all open. The climbs aren't too severe and there's a...

Tucked away in Mid Wales

Classic Venue

Eastridge has been used for riding and racing for years but kind of fell out of favour. Luckily the Eastridge Trail Partnership (look them up of Facebook) got together and sorted the trails, constructing an excellent red trail. It may only be around 10km long but it's go some gutsy...

Bringewood has some great tracks in that have been developed over the years by Pearce Cycles. Although it is mainly downhill focused it should definitely be one your list if your in Shropshire and is not far from Hopton and Bringewood. It was used last year by both the excellent...

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

Shropshire Class

Pearce Cycles have done an excellent job over the years developing the downhill tracks in the wood and now there's the excellent red trail.
