ever steer clear of riding certain areas??????
Would probably stay away from trail centres over bank holidays and busy weekends, more a chance to some natural riding with less chance of people.
Still riding a busy trail centre can be fun as long as your just there to relax rather than ride. Great to chat to people etc.Posted 8 years agoscaredypantsSubscriber
I avoid my local bit of the new forest for at least half the year
It’s just too muddy (not for me – I’m not THAT much of a nancy, but does a lot of damage to ride there and the whole forest is near enough cheeky so I try not to make obvious hub-deep gouges in it). That said, most of the “damage” here is due to loads of passing horses/cows and it gets churned into a nearly unrideable mess (so, yeh, I am a nancy after all)Posted 8 years agocuckooSubscriber
Local cheeky trails on busy weekends (too many anti-cyclist walkers!).
Also tend to avoid the busier parts of the peak on Sunday’s (too many people walking dogs/pushing prams across the entire trail width).
Trails susceptible to bogginess after rainy periods (too heavy a toll on drivetrain).
Also anywhere in built up areas/on busy roads if i can help it.Posted 8 years agoel_boufadorSubscriber
Yorkshire Dales. I’ve ridden there a few times and never really got on with it. It’s quite quaint & the scenery is lovely, but the rides never seem to have enough rocky technical stuff in them. I’ve pretty much given up on them and I go to Calderdale or the Peaks instead (can’t understand why anyone would avoid the peaks – go mid week or early/late if crowds bother you!)
I also avoid local trails in the winter due to muddiness.Posted 8 years ago
