Comrie Croft - possibly my favourite trail centre

Comrie Croft is a hidden gem, a perfect half days riding with a mix of truly natural feeling black and red trails with the grin factor or one of the best cheekiest blue descents I've ever ridden!

Whinlatter

Whinlatter was the first place I tried mountain biking so it has to be a big yes for skills development as I go back a couple of times a year and it still tests me and leaves me grinning! This is a great addition to the Borrowdale...

First ever ride at Whinlatter

Dumyat, a gem of a natural ride!

This is a route for a confident rider as it can be techy in places and pick a day after a few days without rain to avoid the bogs! Be prepared for a hike-a-bike in places! The loop can be extended by a play in mine woods...

Great for skills development!

A completely different experience to the nearby GT. It took some effort not to turn into GT onto our way to Inners but it was worth persevering! Make sure your bike is set up for the downs - my other halfs wasn't (divy forks) and he hated it - I...

My Local Playground

Carron Valley is my local playground and whilst yes it is small I am still not going to knock it having come from a very flat part of York where I had nowhere to play! CV is great if you live within 30 mins drive and want...

Sunny Grizedale

Rode Grizedale for my second time last week and I thought I would show the place some love! I rode the Red Route and whilst one of the sections was closed it still made for an enjoyable leg stretch after the long drive down from Scotland. The red route can...

Fast, fast and fun (did I mention fast?!)

This was my first trip to one of the southerly 7Stanes (my usual playground is Glentress) and Kirroughtree did not disappoint. The red route is ideal for going fast and slogging out some miles. The uphills are even fun with smooth singletrack and swithcbacks making for an easy up. The...
