- north east mtb routes
Where in the North east are you based?
The new stuff at Hamsterley is good and should stay rideable all winter. It’s all on the red and Black routes, but once you’ve found the good stuff you can mix and match. The Hamsterley Trailblazers do guided rides one Sunday a month, or finding the group on Facebook should get you in touch with other riders (there’s an official Trailblazers group, and also a Hamsterley Riders group).
Swaledale has some great riding, with some fairly obvious bridleway loops, or have a chat to Stu at Dales Bike Centre and he can point you toward the best ones for the weather on the day. (Top tip: if it’s windy, use the valley bottom BW when heading upwind, then go downwind on the tops.)Posted 4 years agohot_fiatSubscriber
Thrunton woods has some amazing routes, none of which are signposted. You can get more info here
Cheeky after-work hour sessions can be had at Chopwell. Ride em now before it gets dark and the place becomes labyrinthine.
Kielder’s trails get better and better, though it’s nearly as quick to drive from Newcastle to GT.
Holywell Dene is still riddled with hidden stuff. Best explored on foot then returned to with a bike.Posted 4 years agoneil853Subscriber
Thanks for the replies guys! I’m based in hartlepool, I’ve been out with the gboro mtb guys a few times during the week, great guys but when I’ve tried to see if anyone is up for weekend riding i haven’t had any response.
Just wanted to know if anyone would mind showing us some routes, north yorks would be good, I used to know some routes around silton where the old downhill course was but haven’t ridden there for 10 years plus.
Just waiting for my new lights to arrive so I can get out this week night riding 🙂Posted 4 years ago
