I don’t manage to get out on my mountain bike as much as I would like and opportunities to ride anything other then local trails are even rarer, so when I had a child free day on the same day that some friends were heading to go mountain biking in the Quantocks I was there!
The Verderers Trail at the Forest of Dean is graded a blue (like with pistes, trails are graded green through to black). It is the perfect introduction to mountain biking. Or just brilliant fun for the more experienced rider to blast around.
Cafall trail at CwmCarn is their newest trail heading out to some of the remote areas of the forest. This is what I thought of the trail when I had the chance to check it out this Autumn.
