Lovely to have this on my doorstep to ride round on my horses. Lovely that the cyclistd, walkers & riders can enjoy the countryside together. Majority of cyclists are very considerate with horses. Slightly concerned regarding the volume of cyclists using the bridlepath at the moment (ride UK route) have had a few hairy moments despite being on a very sensible horse. I had a bike fly across the path in front of me shouting there was anothet cyclist behind! It's a narrow route from Snailbeach I've met a few cyclists going round blind bends very fast. The new trail that runs alongside this bit of the bridlepath makes for quite a hairy ride as the horses can't see the bikes but can hear them above them. Please can we horse riders and cyclists work together to make it a great place for all. It would be lovely to have a few more trails for horses off the hard tracks. Please Forestry Commission don't scrape the mud off the middle of the tracks, this makes the tracks rideable in summer.

Slippy, slidey, awesome views, great fun- the best and most difficult ride I have done on 2 wheels. Had the place to myself on this December afternoon. Not for the faint hearted and felt a lot longer than 5 miles. Just brilliant.

11/6/16 first time in Eastridge for Des Pugh and myself. Great trails ,good grip considering it was wet on the ground. Found the up hills tough , but big rewards with the fast technical descents. Plenty of rooty and rocky bits to keep you switched on. I would not advise a beginner to go there first , even though it is only a 5-6 mile loop it feels a lot more. possibly one of the best trails I ridden, beats the commercialised ones every time.
