    If you mean the one in cambridgeshire its possible but not exciting, and very gloopy when wet

    There is also a bridleway that goes south from by eynesbury golf club

    cool i might chuck the mtb in next time i’m down if anyone fancies showing me some stuff?

    Anything from Eaton Socon way to do a loop for a couple of hours?

    If it’s wet be prepared to grow 3 inches if you have to walk anywhere and your bike will gain kilos. There’s some bridleways out towards Molesworth/Spaldwick that will make a big loop.

    I used to live in Potton to the south. Thetford and Woburn are a short drive or you can string together a number of bridleways in the local area but don’t expect anything particularly challenging.

    Reading this thread reminds me why I escaped from St Neots at the age of 21 (a long time ago…). From memory, apart from Grafham Water, it’ll either be too muddy for anything, or more fun on a cross bike.

    Woburn is less than 30 mins drive away

    Live in St Neots, Chicksands and Woburn are only 1/2 hr away. Training loop across to Grafham round and back is 20 miles, dirty but not sticky:)

    Sounding good all of a sudden, thanks for the tips.

    deano8 got that route anywhere?

    So there’s more than one of us living in the flatlands that is st Neots. Unbelievable. Was always ashamed to say on here where I lived…

    Don’t use any gps, depending on when your about I could go for a ride unless you can take it from Strava.
    Dude, don’t be ashamed! Where do you ride?

    I’m still ashamed to say where I was brought up… 🙂

    Sounds good, I won’t be down there until late Feb, early March now though.

    assuming emails are in profiles I’ll drop you a line, would be good to get shown the treats.

    Has chicksands got a xc trail yet? not having much joy with their site?

    shameless plug…my missus has a salon on the green in eaton socon, the crystal rooms, anyone needs a great massage, or their nails done 😀 or you like the tarmac and need your legs waxed,…give her a shout! 😀

    Chicksands xc is roughly marked out and you can make up your own trails but Woburn is better in my opinion.
    Normally do the xc and then ride the bike park which is great fun and being developed all the time.

    Mostly to work. Still haven’t explored much yet. I’ve only been living here for a year, but only came from Northampton, so not much better (but at least had harlestone firs a short ride away). Done grafham a fair few times, also around Paxton pits. But its all pretty much the same flat 😀

    If you’re prepared to travel to Chicksands you could also look down to the hills beyond Barton le Clay. Can put together a 30 mile xc loop with some pretty good climbs and descents plus some woods, bridleways etc. Total mudfest this time of year to be honest but great once it dries out.
