Me and some fellow Isle of Wightees are off over to that there Mainlaaahnd next Saturday for a blast round Swinley Forest. Are the trails there waymarked trail-centre style or is it just a case of follow your nose?
Any locals likely to be out riding there next Saturday who wouldn’t mind sharing your knowledge of the good bits with some hayseeds from across the Solent?Posted 5 years agoStefMcDefSubscriber
South Downs kinda similar to what we have over ‘ere I think.
I guess it’s a case of a change is as good as a rest – there isn’t really anything comparable to Swinley on the IOW, maybe the odd bit here and there.
Good though the riding on the IOW is a lot of our Saturday rides involve linking up the same good bits in slightly different ways, so any change of scenery will be refreshing.Posted 5 years agom0rkMember
Here’s a gpx download from a couple of weeks ago there
That said, get a ride in at QECP, it’s a lot better than it used to be since the guys have been building a lot of new trails up therePosted 5 years agoPeaslakeDaveMember
there is nothing quite like Swinley IMO. I think it is a fantastic centre. The trails are not marked but what is there is just incredible fun! I’d get there early as possible spend as much time as possible in the woods. I’m sure you’ll have and amazing time – especially if the weather is anything like todayPosted 5 years ago
