Information on the riding locations we regularly visit and others we have been to in the past

Haldon Forest Park

Our Haldon rides generally start at the Haldon Gateway, the public area next to the main car park . Riding includes family rides and more technical "blue" and "red" routes as well as some of the 'off piste' tracks. Sometimes for a bit of variety we start in Kenn and ride up the old road to Haldon before a quick loop and back down the tremendous St Andrew’s Lane to Kenn.

Woodbury Common

The terrain mixes wide access tracks with loose pebbly descents, flowing singletrack, stream crossings with the occasional boarded crossing, and shaded wooded sections.


Great but challenging 34 Km ride through different types of Dartmoor landscape with challenging climbs and fast singletrack descents. Watch out for Greator Rocks and the Nut Crackers! We also ride regularly around Lustleigh Cleeve, Castle Drogo, Princetown and Bennett’s Cross

The Quantocks

This short range of hills to the north of Taunton has some of the best single track in the South West. Indeed you can ride for a whole day without going on tarmac and without using the same track twice. If you like downhill then there is some excellent tracks that have been constructed in Great Wood.


Weekend rides together with the odd winter night ride have been organised here. The rides are always interesting and include some amazing tracks across the Moors and along the coast. Some of the areas we ride here are the hills and cliffs around Minehead, Dunkery Beacon, Horner Woods and the Doone Valley.


This area is best suited to a long spell of dry weather as some of the woods can get very wet and muddy

Mutters Moor

Various woodland single tracks and double track with some great views to the coast. The downside of this ride is the steep climb up to the top from the car park near the Bowd Inn where we start. The ride back down always seems much shorter.

East Hill

This comprises various wooded singletrack of varying quality and speed, often flowing and occasionally needing a degree of dexterity over the tree roots. Also includes fantastic views of the Exe Estuary extending out to sea.
