Fancy something different to trail centre? This is a classic mountain bike route with some of the best natural riding in Britain. It’s going to be an all day ride covering most of the Quantocks area. We will start at Holford and climb up through the tree covered combe, taking in the leafy autumnal scenery. Reaching the top to catch your first breath, you are rewarded with spectacular views of the Bristol channel. Back on the bike, we take one of the many descents down before we ride back up again over the moors to explore some more other combes. It’s all natural riding with a good mix of terrain interspersed with many water crossings. We will also get a chance to ride some of the DH and Enduro tracks at Triscombe and Great Wood. The best is saved till last when we return back to Holford and finish on the grand finale descent. This is not a ride for novices. It will be physically demanding with a lot of climbing and pushing as well some quite technical descents. Distance will be 30-40km and will be 4-5 hours. It’s your chance to squeeze in one more ride before the clocks go back. You also get an extra hour in bed to recover – result! Oh, there is a pub at the start and finish.
We’ll meet at the Plough Inn car park, Holford at 10:00 29th October 2016
