- Routes near Kidderminster
I am in Blakedown and regularly ride over Clent. You can do a pretty good ride considering its proximity to the large conurbations. Bottom to top it is 1000ft of climbing, so 2500ft in 20 miles is easily achievable and is pretty tough on a singlespeed!
Wyre is great, but you need some local knowledge to get the best out of it.Posted 5 years agocmjdaviesMember
I’m in Kidderminster and me and the Mrs ride out from King Charles School to the Wyre Forest via the canal, the Rifle Range and round the Safari Park.
There are loads of routes round the farms and out to Clent (mentioned above) via Blakedown etc.
Are you new to the area? Drop me an email if you want showing round.

For MTB I’ll second the Wyre, but you need recent local knowledge. Drop into Stourport Specialist Cycles and see if they still have the group rides going (last one I went on was late 90’s, but the shops still going!).
For an odd jump/scree/play spot try the top of Titterstone Clee Hill (the one with the 100ft golf ball on it). I think its public access, and there’s plenty of knarly bits in the old quarry.
Or there used to be a DH track in Ribbesford woods.Posted 5 years agogeologistMember
I’m from ludlow , and know the area fairly well, the only area I’m not too familiar with is the wyre forest. It depends what sort of riding you want. Xc would be malverns, the Mynd and the wyre, for something a little more gravity related, or a bit of a dh oriented xc route, try bringewood and mortimer forest. Would be more than happy to show you around, as I’m in Ludlow. If you fancy something a little further away would recommend hopton and eastridge is excellent.Posted 5 years ago
