My name is Nick and I'm looking to get back in to the world of Mountain Biking. I was a keen rugby player but after suffering fairly horrendous knee dislocation in October I now need another hobby (The Mrs has banned me from rugby see). Running is too uncomfortable at the moment but cycling is fine.
I used to be well into mountain biking when I was younger but haven't done it to any degree recently, using my bike only for the commute to work.
With that in mind I'm looking for some decent trails around the Manchester area. I'm still pretty fit and although my Trek hard tail is about 8 years oldi t's been well looked after and has only seen road use recently, and it's very light for an older bike.
Im thinking that XC would suit me best so does anyone know of any decent trails around Manchester, preferably ones I could ride to without having to take the car would be good. The transpennine trail is the only one I can seem to find.
Thanks for having me, and I hope to maybe meet some of you soon for a ride out somewhere.
