Address: Fairholmes, Bamford, Hope Valley S33 0AQ
Not really Mountain biking per se – but a really nice long ride around the various reserviors – picturesque!
Some ups & downs to keep the fitness up.
Alee Rating: 5 STARS – for scenery alone.
Address: Guisborough Forest & Walkway
Parking is £2 at the Visitor Centre
Note the centre car park closes at different times throughout the year.
Alee Rating: 2 stars (Maybe worth more but went too late and didnt have time to get on to complete the Blue trail or proper technical parts of the Red trail)
Steep windy uphill climb tests your fitness for at least first half hour.
Address: Harlestone , Northampton, NN5 6UJ
Parking is on the Road just outside the entrance.
Aim: Quick intensive 45min ride before sunset for fitness – this was just what I was after.
Note: there are no particular trails but you can easily make it up as you go. Be careful of large fallen trees across paths.
10 minutes from M1 Junction 16. 1 hour from Birmingham
