    Wendover or Aston Hill.

    A little bit further north you have Woburn/Brickhill.

    I live near Amersham – there are few bridleways actually out of town itself, but go immediately north to Chesham and there’s a great network; east towards Chenies and there’s also a good few to choose from (and Shire Lane down towards Denham). Follow the canal up towrds Berkhamstead for a different type of terrain, and as stated, can be cobined with the Wendover area (train from Amersham – Wendover a good option when it’s wet). West Chilterns if you have transport over from Henley is superb.

    Best way to start off is to join West Drayton MTB club social rides (good internet site).

    Look forward to seeing you around!

    Just pack some mud tyres for this time of year.

    If you like your jumps and freeride stuff then get to Woburn or Chicksands. Woburn has some great singletrack as well, worth a go for a couple hours of exploring. Aston Hill is pretty fun but expensive for a day pass and the push up isn’t nice on a humid day.

    Closest club to you is Summit MTB Lots of members in and around Amersham, rides from the doorstep, including a regular Monday night from Seer Green (~3 miles from Amersham) and many more ad-hoc ones during both the week and weekend. There’s also a club ride targeted at newcomers this Sunday – details on the website.

    Just so you are aware, it is compulsary in the Chilterns to use Mud X’s (at least) in the months of Dec/Jan/Feb…, oh, and hope your bike has plenty of mud room. 😉

    Yeah loads of fun riding, cheeky trails in lots of the woods around Amersham, Little Chalfont, Cheynes, Latimer. The Summit MTB track in Lotts Wood is a great all weather track becuase its not got clay soil. So good for a bit of winter training doing a few laps there if its wet. Also not far from Swinley Forest in Bracknell, Aston Hill for DH, plus Chicksands other riding spots a hour away.

    Have fun!
