Cannock Chase at the moment
There is not loads of diversions, there are 2, one short one at the bottom of the campsite, the diversion there is a fast fireroad & fun. The other one is a bit longer and also cuts off the big black section, the diversion there is a fireroad climb. All the rest of it is open and you’ll have a great time. I’d be more concerned about the heavy rain forecast all weekend :o(Posted 3 years agofielonatorMember
Good morning all,
I’m planning a trip to north wales this weekend, riding Llandegla and Stiniog. Was thinking of Cannock Chase on the way up from Kent on the friday.
I’ve just read there are a lot of diversions in place. Has anyone riden there this week and is it worth the effort? If not, then where else should we be looking that’s sort of on the way to Wrexham.
Cheers.Posted 3 years agonickdaviesSubscriber
Always worth the effort!
A loop of FTD + Monkey is currently 20K so a few closures but not too bad. I’ve been missing out a couple of the monkey sections cos the best bits are diverted, so it’s a bit more if you do those.
If that’s a bit short and you want something to bolt on to it turn right up the fireroad before the last descent on the monkey (marked insidious incline if you don’t know it, with a log block and ‘V’ gate), take the next left going back on yourself, follow the fire track round to the right and the push up pash to stile cop is on your right, go play up there!Posted 3 years agoprawnyMember
Went over monday and wednesday, it was riding really well at the moment, maybe a bit too dry if anything. Bit of rain wouldn’t hurt.
It’s been OK today, I thought it’d be worse looking at the forecast but just a couple of decent showers. I’ll be there Saturday definitely, possible before work tomorrow.
Diversions aren’t much of an issue either. Quite enjoyed the pootle up by the golf course by the monkey, I needed a breather by that point.Posted 3 years ago
