I'm in newcastle every second weekend with my daughter who is 9. Typically we do indoor climbing but santa is delivering her a new mountain bike for xmas so next year, each second sunday, I'm wanting to take her biking.
I grew up in newcastle so know the area well but I'm trying to figure out some suitable tracks/trails to take her on.
Initially I was thinking about the usual fall backs of the old railway lines out towards wylan and consett but I was also thinking about some slightly more technical routes and for the world couldnt think of any. the criteria is not too steep, no big hills which counts out chopwell in my mind, probably excludes anything like thrunton/simonside, anybody else think of nice flowing not too steep singletrack in the north east? Glentress blue is too far for a day trip before its suggested. any ideas? ideally a little wood/forest near newcastle. its going to end up as the top end of chopwell isnt it?
