- Riding some amazing off piste trails in the Wye Valley with WyeMTB! (4K POV)
I decided to do something a bit different to my normal style of riding and spent Friday (my birthday) with WyeMTB doing a guided off piste trails day around the Lower Wye Valley, a stark contrast to last year’s birthday which I spent on a hospital bed waiting for collar bone surgery!
Well worth the day out and so much more descending than I could ever do in a day without the Defender to meet me at the bottom, over 20 miles of bike time most of which was downhill which came to early 5500ft of descents!Posted 7 months ago
Blimey, that does look good – much better than I gave the area credit for.
As I do mostly bike park and DH type stuff normally I was a bit worried that because of the overall distance the trails wouldn’t be challenging enough, I mean surely it couldn’t ALL be awesome trails. How wrong was I…hahaPosted 7 months ago
Devil’s Staircase & Limekiln spotted. Ridden those a few times during the Wyegate Long Distance (motorcycle) Trial. I’m guessing devils would be a handful on an MTB…..
I’m not familiar with the trails by name but seeing as we encountered a group of trials bikes coming up the opposite direction that sounds about right…definitely a handful though!
Got a link to the trip? Was it just a single day?
They’ve got a couple more pre-planned days coming up, but I think if you have groups of 4-6 they will put on a day for you.

Nice. Noticed one of my favourite trails.
Cant wait for the bridge toll demise. Hopefully be able to ride further up the valley.
Keep it secret
I’d definitely do more of this kind of riding if I knew where to find trails like that locally. Me too, I was so pleased to see the toll was finally being removed last time I drove across to BPW!Posted 7 months ago
Haven’t ridden those and i’m a local ffs. Must get out and explore more
I’m guilty of that too, I regularly come all the way to FoD or South Wales to ride but don’t do much near where I live at all. Although you can’t really compare Oxfordshire to South Wales though…Posted 7 months ago
