any riders in or easily near hampton??
I gather there’s some kind of “scene” riding around Richmond park and Wimbledon common but unless you’re after road miles, your best bet would be the Downs, Swinley or further afield. That said, there’s always Esher shore which should take you less than 20 mins to ride to if you feel like something a bit more adventurous.
Drop me a line as I’m usually out somewhere at weekends.Posted 8 years ago
road miles is possible as I can stick some slicks on the cross bike. aP let me know if you fancy showing me around once I land there.
Esher has shore? i drive through the woods on my way home and it looks like it should have tracks and trails there. Would be good to been shown the routes when I get here.Posted 8 years ago
ti-pin-man – that was riding my cx bike with cx tyres riding out on a mixture of road’n’off road to go do the trails on Leith Hill and Holmbury Hill, before riding back along another off-road track which brings you out west of Epsom.Posted 8 years ago
If you want road miles then we usually do a 70-80 mile loop on Sundays heading out about 9-9.30 returning about 4-5 hours later.jondMember
Keep an eye on here for anyone posting rides at Swinley – it’s a train ride from Twickenham to Martins Heron (or at least that’s the nearest station to the Lookout/Coral Reef (?) carparks). BOBMBC have regular rides over the week of differing speeds, tho’ they start from Crowthorne which might be more of a pain unless you’re driving.
see map – Lookout’s at the top – there’s a lot of trails that *aren’t in the marked mtb area. They’re mostly – if not all- maintained by BOB members.
For a local bit of offroad there’s the Esher/Claygate commons, nothing much to write home about but there’s the odd section which meanders around.Posted 8 years agocliveMember
yep hampton village not far from the green
go out most wednesday nights 6.30 @ swinley if you want a tour.
trying to do the south downs more often as well, could do with a decent guide though !!!
lost in Peaslake in the dark is no fun.
Or depends if you can bunk a day off work going to do Afan for the day mid next week 😀Posted 8 years ago
