A charge? Not if you are a National Trust member there isn’t. Maybe you need to join voodoo….Posted 4 years ago

I should, keep saying itPosted 4 years ago
One of my very good friends refers to them as the Nazi Trust, I guess she must have had a run in with them as she is normally a quiet tree hugging type of personPosted 4 years ago

Been round there today trails are looking goodPosted 4 years ago

I guess a few blokes on Fatbikes should be easy enough to spot?!!Posted 3 years ago
just pop to Lifeboat road carpark at the start and say hello mate 😉Posted 3 years ago
If I could be arsed I’d post a pick of my gravel bike out on Taylor’s bank. Grew up in formby. If anyone has a spare fat bike I’d love to join you.
Also used to shrimp off the back off Alexander road.Posted 3 years ago
Just moved into the area but unfortunately away next weekend…bugger. For future reference are there only certain areas that can be ridden in the wood area at Formby, or is it open access for bikes? I’m guessing it may be frowned upon at busy times…Posted 3 years ago
Watch out for joggers with earphones in. They are GOD in those woods, and don’t you forget it.Posted 3 years ago
i just peel the joggers off my big fat tyres at the end of me ride, i hardly know their there, LolPosted 3 years ago

Legal access is very poor, oop North, plus it’s a National Trust area so it’s not like people aren’t bothered, they take a dim view of mountain biking IME. But let’s face it options are limited round there, you can put some boss loops together once you know the paths [decent sized area all in] so personally I’d just ride there sensibly and avoid the crowds. Weekday night ride would be excellent there I bet. Go armed with a smile but don’t necessarily expect one back.
The beach itself is fine [it might even be open access to ride on a beach, not sure], even the rangers won’t be arsed about that.Posted 3 years ago
we have chatted with the rangers in the woods and they were more interested in how hard it was to pedal a bike with huge tyres than us being there or not, never had anyone say anything negative in any ride therePosted 3 years ago
see you people tomorrow morning 🙂Posted 3 years ago
Working tomorrow. Sunday would’ve been perfect for me. Hope to join you on the next one 😎Posted 3 years ago
I’ll be in those woods tomorrow hunting fungi.
If you see someone bent down in a funny position don’t laugh.
The woods are owned/managed by English Nature and they have no objections to bikes….as long as you act in a normal civilised manner. Start bonfires or try and build your own trails and they will get a little bit antsy.Posted 3 years ago
a few of us will still be there for a Sunday ride too Andy, prolly ride about 9 oclock from the same place if you can make it pal 😉Posted 3 years ago
Say Howdy if you see us Sarawak 😉Posted 3 years ago
Might come on Sunday but The Rake is on as well and we might be going over mob handedPosted 3 years ago
I should be down there late morning on that Norco up there ^^^,I’ll have a look out for you all.Posted 3 years ago
Might get down there on Sunday thenPosted 3 years ago
Hopefully see you over the weekend 😁Posted 3 years ago
I got to the beach about 11am,plenty of people doing some orienteering event,never saw any Fatties though.
As you can see,the beach was crowded again…Posted 3 years ago
