The Wyre Forest is located West of Kidderminster. It has a lot of really good natural bike trails on the steep sides of the valley. Local knowledge is really useful in an area like this, so Sarah Peters from the Wyre Forest MTB Group is going to lead us on a ride taking in the best bits.
We had a really good ride there in 2010 (ride report). There’s loads of really fun sections, including a river crossing, rocky descents, steep mud, roots and fast swoopy single track. We spent 5 hours riding and still didn’t cover all of it, so there’s loads to do.
Google maps says it’s 70 miles away from the centre of Swindon. It’s mainly dual carriageway, so allow a bit over an hour to get there.
