    There are loads of ancient small woods throughout Sheffield, here are some pics of a cracking little trail (Gromit) in my nearby woods, called Carr Woods, Norton Lees S8. The only thing the council don’t want is fly tipping or motorbikes. Unfortunately as they are surrounded by houses there is always the added obstacle of piles of fresh dog paste, hence the nickname of dog s**t Woods.

    An off camber rooty clay drop, only doable in a dry Summer or a frozen day, like today.

    Then negotiate the stream, fun when it has been chucking it down for several days!

    Brilliant natural root steps in the background.

    Third stream crossing, keep up the speed to clear the roots or stall and tumble into the stream.

    Can anyone else in Sheffield recommend their local Dog S**t Woods, I see so many when I am out and about in the car and have wondered about trying to put a Sheffield local woods run together.

    Not Sheffield but got plenty of woods my way on- Kirkby in Ashfield,Hucknall,Mansfield area and much better but smaller than Sherwood pines , in fact you could probably string them together with a few trails and get to the pines from where I live,will have a go in summer, and yes all dog s..t woods too

    mmm, that sounds good – very much up for it. I’m S6… Regularly head out up Rivelin, though not done much off piste exploring.

    Tuesdays ideal for me.

    Matzzzzzz, any chance of a show-around? I’m in Carlton and it feels like an mtb desert after living in Sheffield previously…

    There’s the obvious one from hunters bar through the parks to potters clough.

    The not so obvious, Ranmoor singletrack (aka footpath).

    Ponderosa has a few short/steep runs through the woods from the crooks side. And theres the landscaping in Crookes park opposite which just invites big air, bowling green followed by a lake jump (maybe not in febuary, but we did once jump in at christmas while drunk).

    I’m S6 too and happy to share some good bits in Rivelin. Tuesdays should be okay but 6.30 is a bit early for me can we make it 7?

    Pook, good idea, 90 mins in each others local woods, come the summer we can then string them together for a Tour De Dog S**t Woods. The first Tuesday I am working though, second is doable.

    Used to do woods one to five back in the day, brincliffe edge down to Abbeydale road then across to archer lane and round the back of the sainsburys petrol station (through the estate at the back) across hutcliffe wood road to the woods at the other side of the train tracks near millhouses park, left up abbey lane to the round about turn right towards meadowhead, on the right is a trail taking you to the golf club, across the top of that to twentywell through the top of the woods towards totley and then up past the spitfire and up to blacka. Then across blacka through the woods and back to ecclesall near dore station.
    Or something like that

    guys, really sorry but I won’t be able to make it later. A nightmare journey into work means I’ll have to work late.

    Also, my bike is buggered from hit the north.

    will sort something soon though cos I like this plan….
