FoD or Llandegla – 30 minutes to decide
Go to FoD most weeks and been to Llandegla twice. Love FoD but if Llandegla was closer i’d probably chose to ride there more often. Both are very good though. Llandegla is a faster track, more flowing and with better features than FoDs verderers trail, which although very good only really gets going on the final 2.5km descent, the red trail is a bit too short, although they are in the process of lengthening it. Plus Llandegla has a nice skills area.Posted 4 years ago
If you fancy more DH action though FoD has better options.
Well it seems to be a mixture and at some point I will do them both.
However this comment made me realise I was being lazy…
You’re going to spend 4 hours driving, just to ride at Llandegla or FoD?
And to make it worse, the wonderful Peak District is so much closer.
Get yourself a coffee, sit down and work out a proper route!
So now I have dug the camelback out, stolen the young uns Garmin and am about to set off to the below.
Cheers all and see you in about 8 hours 😀Posted 4 years agomboySubscriber
Llandegla is OK now they’ve made the routes longer and more interesting, but still a bit santised. I used to find it very boring before they did a lot of work to it.
FoD has some of, if not the best natural trail riding in the UK (forget the Verderers trail) and its well worth the trip from anywhere if you can get a guide to show you round!Posted 4 years ago
I have a full day to myself so fancy one of the two above.
Live in NW Leicester so both around 2 hours away.
Have done Cannock, CyB and Sherwood too much so fancy something different.
Would go up into the peaks but fancy a nice easy waymarked trail 🙂
XC based reds sought as I am a wheels on the ground rider.Posted 4 years ago
I’m back and tucking into some nice and simple mince and rice 😀
The ride was a good decision as I had forgot just how being alone in the middle of nowhere feels.
Trail centres are good and if I’m honest I have tended to stick to them over the last few years, but riding ‘proper’ trails sure made a fight back today.
Thanks all again.
PS. The damn road climb up to Crookhill Farm is a nasty sod.Posted 4 years ago
