- Cannock Chase
i’ve ridden to the top secret start location for the infamous thursday night rides on the chase from stafford station.
i’m sure one of the lovely hospitable thursday night types would happily let you know where that is
careful though, the 22:43 sprint for last orders can be a killerPosted 6 years ago
I’m at Staffordshire University and for some reason I have only made it out to the chase for about half an hour to suss it out. But that was in a friends car. Now I’m wondering how many of you have ever got the train to Rugeley Town and ridden to the Chase? With a bike. How easy is this?
And who goes out riding there regularly? Cos I haven’t found anyone to ride with! Im interested in the XC loops (though at the mo I wont be all that fast on the ups as my full sus frame is about 2 sizes too small for pedaling and my HT is at home) and Some flowy technical DH though I’m not a fan of huge air! Mainly cos I suck.
Anyway please let me know!

The downhill is at Stile Cop which is just up the road (up as in up a gert big hill) from the Station.
The (unofficial) XC trails start at Milford Common which is about a 10 minute ride from Beaconside, if you’re at the Stafford site. Thinking about it though, it’s still a 10 minute ride from Beaconside if you’re at the Stoke site. The nearest bit of FtD to Milford is about 20 mins away, passing lots of better stuff en route.Posted 6 years ago
Thanks for the posts guys! I was actually after the best way to get to the Chase Trails centre really. As that is all clearly marked stuff. But if I was able to link up with any of the people from the site posted my scruff (thanks!) I may well find my way onto the other stuff 😀
Thanks for the help!Posted 6 years agoKing-ocelotMember
I’m guessing your at Staffs Uni Beconside? If so head past the Crematorium and then go over the crossroad, stick to the narrow lane (over a couple of bridges) into Baswhich, keep on the main road till it ends, head left to Milford, at Mammoth Bikes go follow the road on the right to the start of FTD, or, ask the guys in mammoth were the start and trails are. It’s not far at all going this route I can mark a map if you want.Posted 6 years agoscruffMember
From beaconside go over the island where the chemist /doctors are up to the fire station, right down the grass bank, through all the houses, at main road go right then left, right and over the 1st bridge, then left onto canal at next bridge, about 1 mile go over the bridge (no other option) then track back onopposite side, under railway and through farm, left on main road to Milforsd. Faster and less road than above.Posted 6 years ago
