Posted 6 months ago hodgyndMember There you go..its a cracker I’m sharing my #OffRoadBiking trip with you. Total distance 39.1?km, http://my.viewranger.com/track/details/NTUyMDc4NA== . Via @ViewRanger Posted 6 months ago hodgyndMember Posted 6 months ago joemmoMember I endorse this route, watch out for the pedal snagging stealth rocks in the heather on the single-track over Blanchland moor though… There’s a few little cheeky trail bits in Slaley forest and you can extend the route further north and west. I’ll try and put a map together and post. Posted 6 months ago esselgruntfuttockMember Some great trails round there! Very underrated. That track coming back down to Edmundbyers is a cracker. Posted 6 months ago butcherMember The Edmundbyers route is a good one. Best when dry. More stuff over Hexham Common too, a few Bridleways over the moor towards Allendale. There’s a route right out of Hamsterley. It’s on the Trailblazer’s website: http://hamsterley-trailblazers.co.uk/index.php/rides-trails/trail-guides/doctors-gate Also High Cup Nick down in Teesdale. Excellent visuals at High Cup Nick, and some horrendous weather if you pick a bad day… It can be a big ride with lots of climbing. Aside from that, there are very few Bridleways on the North Pennines unfortunately.
