Bike routes, Nailsworth – Help please….. again!
Made a thread a couple of months ago asking for local trails (I live near Ciren).
After some research and recommendations I’ve tried to cobble together a VERY vague map giving me a very rough idea of the trail locations.
The plan would be to start from either Horsley or Chavenage and ride some or all of the trails, so any more precise information would be awesome so I can make my map better :
I’ve done the same thing with a trail I heard about in Nympsfield woods, and this is even vaguer.
Here are the threads I was reading for reference :
and the previous thread I made:
Sorry, I know it’s a bit of a jigsaw puzzle, but any help or grid references or parking spots or maps would be amazing.
EDIT: Someone tell me if the maps work or not, thanks!Posted 4 years ago
Sorry, I assumed you were posting mid way through a ride when you said “I’m on top of the common”, I now see you were posting to simonjj.
Other places of interest look like Sapperton woods (not sure if any one has found anything rideable there) and North Nibley (the downhill is awesome, but having been there a few times, I can’t help but think there must be a few decent XC trails around there somewhere.Posted 4 years agoqwertyMember
I’m up for this, I’m near Noahs, been out with Bigfoot around Stroud and did a nice trail from Nailsworth which runs parallel with the road to Uley. Been up to Standish and Edge a few times. Not sure about the land access up at Sapperton Woods, may be Bathurst Estate or protected woodland. My emails in profile if you get a date together, I work shifts so it may be a bit hit and miss.Posted 4 years agotangMember
I also know a really really good ride that used to be my local. Slad/Sheepscombe/Cranham/Painswick/Slad we should def do that one on a dry spring summer evening (pub stops at Butchers Arms or Woolpack or both!) its quite long with plenty of climbing and some nice singletrack(cranham bits are now restricted) and passes a couple of jump spots that archie you might enjoy!Posted 4 years ago
There’s singletrack all the way from Selsley common to the viewpoint at the top of Frocester hill.
See these route ideas too:
There’s also things at Sapperton, up towards Cirencester, out the back of Painswick via the old air field, stuff between Tetbury and Cirencester.Posted 4 years ago
I live in Stonehouse btw. Heavily involved with MBSwindon – we’ve got shop discounts at Leisure Lakes in Cheltenham, Noahs in Stroud, Back8bikes in Nailsworth, Rides24/7 in Cirencester plus bikes shops in Swindon, Bristol, Newbury, Wallingford. Overall 40 discounts.
We’re planning regular evening rides round the Stroud area in the summer of 2013.

Sounds great. We’ve got a load of keen riders in the area already. Just a matter of getting on with it really.Posted 4 years ago
We also do Friday evening rides at our trail in Swindon and then go to the pub.
