Gisburn Forest - Mountain Biking

I managed to get out today with Steve to have a blast on the bikes. Gisburn Forest is our local 'trail centre', and has changed a fair bit since we were last here. Firstly we couldn't get in the carpark (soo busy), and secondly they were building a big new visitor's centre and cafe complex - how things change!

The new 'Hope' line...

As well as the existing loop, there was a new 'free ride' section sponsored by Hope. It was fun, with big tabletops, berms and drop offs!

Speedy Steve on the berms!!
The original loop is suffering quite badly from erosion, but thankfully a local trail group are trying to keep up the repairs

THE biggest berms out there (Hulley Gulley)!

Beautiful and remote (not me the scenery!) - Brilliant
We had a relaxed (?slow) ride around the course, chatting to various people who had driven here from Newcastle, York and Leicester to name a few....

Great to be biking again, I highly recommend Gisburn Forest, but a word of warning the 'red' route is quite a test (or am I soft!?)!

P.S. Thanks for the camera loan Rob ;-)
