    I hate all of you.

    20 minute ride to Richmond Station, 40 minute train journey to Martins Heron, 10 minute ride to Swinley Forest.

    Damn you London.

    I can be off road in less than a minute, but takes about 10 minutes to get to some really good stuff. The Chilterns are riddled with good riding (when its not sloppy). If I could tweak where I lived at all, it would somewhere at the foot of a good descent, not, as at present, the top.

    Nearest bit of singletrack is 30 seconds from the door. Peak District boundary and the start of a huge network of Pennine paths and BWs is five minutes ride up the hill. I didn’t choose to live here for the riding exactly, but the fact that the riding is good is what got me back into bikes again after a few years away. If I moved house again (no chance), quality of local trails would be very near the top of the list of qualifiers.

    About 200 yards and I am into the Sandia mountain range and 40 miles or so of trails–unfortunately, at the moment, except for the lower foothills section, it’s all closed off now due to extreme fire danger (3 major fires–several smaller burning in the state—almost 100 sq. miles burned)

    It’s 5.5km from my door to Adsdean for the start of Kingley Vale. About a third of the way there is on bridleway, so a decent warm-up rather than a chore. On the way back the last section of bridleway come out opposite the pub…

    trails werent a factor for me.

    the biggest factor for me was commutable distance from my work and shops via bicycle.

    10 min spin and I’m bang in the middle of some of N Wales most stunning scenery. 15 min of up to the top of the Llangollen DH tracks and the option of endless natural trails in every direction!
    15min in van or 3/4 hr pedal to Llandegla, Marin, Penmachno,Antur Steinog & CYB all well under an hrs drive – not to bad I don’t reckon.

    1/2 mile to Cock Orchard, then another half a mile to a long draggy climb up to Cat and Fiddle

    (OK, not THE Cat and Fiddle!)
