Trail description

Starting from Adderstone Field (Post 60).

A short but challenging route, on variable terrain of mainly single track trails and some forest roads. Some very steep climbs and challenging, purpose built descents. Technical trail features need a high level of technical ability. Expect large and unavoidable features. 

Experienced, excellent bike handling skills and a high level of fitness and good mountain bikes required.

Refreshments are now available from Dalby Activity Centre near Adder stone Field.  Hot and cold drinks, cakes and snacks are available everyday during school holidays and weekends from Easter to October. 

Trail News - SingletrAction, Yorkshires trail building volunteers will be working on the Red Cycle Route on the 3rd Sunday of every month (section tbc). Maybe you can give up some of your free time to work on the trails you love?? www.singletraction.org.uk

 Please take your litter home with you. Thank you.

Loved it, did the black and red in one go, if you know how to ride you will be ok, no killers.

Complete bliss :-) I would have done it twice if it wasn't for the rain at the end and my 3 hours bike hire ending (nice bikes)

DONE THE RED ROUTE IT WAS BRUTAL BUT QUALITY TERRAIN GOING BACK NEXT WEEK FOR THE WORLD CUP ROUTE.

EXCELLENT SINGLE TRACK TRAILS AND FIRE ROADS.

WELL WORTH THE 7 QUID PARKING
