Recommend me a weekend's riding.
Push it a bit and get up the lakes. It really will be worth it in this weather and there are actual mountains which are generally missing from the south of England. Put a thread up again if you want specific recommendations for campsites etc but imo you should be looking at staying in Keswick, hard to beat it. Cannock is 30 mins from me and it’s good for a half a day. If you’re set on trail parks then degla and cody are within easy driving distance of each other but again might push your driving limit.Posted 4 years agoarcingMember
A mate and I have a free pass to disappear off to the wilderness at the end of the month and I don’t know where we should be heading. Requirements are:
Within sensible drive of Surrey to ensure two good days riding, so really 3 hours tops.
We’ll be camping overnight on the Saturday.
Should we try and visit two places? I’ve been to Cannock for the first time recently which I loved. Is there enough to keep you busy for two days, ditto with Forest of Dean. Anywhere else we should be considering?

As a variation on Candodavid’s suggestion what about the Quantocks and Dartmoor? Day 1 Quantocks. Quick dash down the M5 afterwards camp overnight and take on the delights of Dartmoor on the second day.
Not that we haven’t got enough riding to keep you occupied here on Dartmoor but that way you get to experience a different area and also to break the journey.Posted 4 years agorocketmanMember

As much as I love it as a local loop I think you would be hard pushed to spend two days there. For an area of only 25 sq mi the Chase has a rich history of XC racing and there are trails everywhere but unless you are fond of sand, pebbles and trees there’s not much variety.Posted 4 years agoarcingMember
Hmm, maybe an earlier start is in order then, and we push it out a bit.
rene59, I’m intrigued, care to elaborate?
So, Quantocks, Dartmoor, Peaks, or Degla (maybe taking in Cannock on the way) look like the options.
Don’t often get a weekend pass, so may as well make the most of it.Posted 4 years ago
