Using our extensive local knowledge of the natural trails network from our door we will weave together some amazing riding days. You won't find man-made boardwalks, sculpted berms or handbuilt table tops. You will ride through big landscapes, awesome scenery, real adventures on trails that you're not likely to see another rider. One minute it's singletrack not much wider than your tyre, next winching you way up a rocky moorland trail then onto flying down a fast rocky descent with fruity little steps, loose corners and drops to focus the mind. The trails around here drain well due to a predominantly limestone landscape giving good all weather trails, not much mud around here!
It's not just about the riding afterall, we know about feeding cyclists, in fact our cafe is listed in the 'Bike Hub' top 20 cycle cafe stops in the UK. Take a seat to refuel and sample our great coffee, order from our menu and indulge in our awesome cakes!
