- Closest mountain biking to Cambridge?
Where’s the closest Mountain Biking to Cambridge? A few folks who live near the Peak District National Park are being offered jobs in the Eastern point of the Golden Triangle. I wondered how far away the nearest mountain biking would be in terms of time or distance. Or, would such a move need a shift to the ‘dark side’?Posted 5 years agokimbersSubscriber
Bridleways around but nothing exciting Thetford is the only nearby place with any trails but it’s still quite flat
If its still there the chalk quarry on lime kiln hill in cherry Hinton is good fun
Heading further west to the Chilterns gets you some hills and fun to be had at woburn or chicksands
Honestly your nearest bet for real terrain is probably errmmm …. the peak district !Posted 5 years agotheraggyoneMember
ive lived in Cambridge all of my life ,their isnt any decent trails for miles . there is only thetford which is ok for a day out but very flat or there is chicksands bike park (brilliant fun) which is where I spend most of my time. they are both about 45 mins drive from Cambridge in different directions. there used to be Woburn too hopefully it will be rebuilt.
basicly you either need a car to visit places or a road bike to join the masses…Posted 5 years agoGrizlaMember
There’s some nice countryside to the south of Cambridge, and it’s covered in bridleways (and footpaths.) You might even find some hills/singletrack within cycling distance of the city if you look hard enough. It’s not the peak district or Wales, but it’s not all bad.
Apart from that, there’s the places that everyone else has mentioned.Posted 5 years ago
Epping forest isn’t too far either.
