It is very unfortunate that there is so much scope to have an unreal mountain bike trail centre and there is no official Red or black trail for experienced mountain bikers. It is very strange that the forestry commission do not support the local area by bringing mountain bikers to the area with a trail centre. The good trails that have been built have no support from the local forestry commission and they quickly wear out due to them needing materials like hardcore when the groves wear in.
Im not expecting anything to happen in a hurry because it looks like they couldn't even put in any signs for the blue route thats someone complained about over two years a go.
Forestry Commission Response
Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately the red route in Guisborough does not conform to our grading system and would need significant investment to allow this to conform which the Forestry Commission does not have. We will allow the trail to be ridden as a wild trail but we will not invest in this trail at the current time. Yorkshire Forest District has a major trail Centre at Dalby Forest where we continue to provide good quality trails to a standard that is expected. I am sorry that we are unable to do this everywhere and limited resources mean we have to priorities our efforts. Thank you again for your comments.
