- Sherwood Pines
I ride there most weeks, have been riding it ss for last two autumn/winters, a mate had a 29er and thought it was well suited to pines. I think you will enjoy it ss and if you see a gap in the trees off the red trail take yourself off down it as you will find lots of good xc race routes which can be tight and twisty and good fun. It’s not very hilly compared to Peak District for example but there are bits of gradient so not flat as a pancake.
Robhenry is right hit it with some speed and just carry your momentum and it is good for getting out on, enjoyPosted 5 years agoBigSteveMember

Right opposite is a bridleway. Follow that round the fields until you come to a fire road. Turn right onto that and follow into Sherwood Pines. Once into the Pines turn right and follow the path a hundred yards or so and section 4 (I thinks it’s 4) is on the left. Rest is way marked.Posted 5 years agodmw536Member

Does anyone know what conditions are like at the moment? Planning to ride there on Saturday morning as long as it’s not too snowy/icy/muddy.
I went down a couple of weeks ago just after the first ‘dumping’ of snow and it was fine, I imagine its a bit wet but its pretty well covered by the trees so hopefully wont be too snowy or icy, I could be wrong though!Posted 5 years agogoldenwonderMember
It;s nasty.Posted 5 years ago
I live on the edge of the forest & just simply avoiding it as much as I can at the moment!
If it freezes hard it’ll be good fun again, but if the temp rises & snow melts it won’t be a huge amount of fun.
Make sure you’ve got some spare brake pads & aren’t too precious about your drive train either!
