Singletrack around Woburn?

Post  Jase_MK on 2008-04-22, 06:12

Hi folks, first post!

I'm from MK and have started doing a bit more biking again recently around Bow Brickhill/Woburn area. Trouble is, the route we've been doing isn't the most exciting route ever and I'd like to replace some of the wide bridleway type stuff with some more interesting single track. I've just done a search on here and read about various trails (roller coaster, moat, trek trail, etc) but having trouble working out what is where just by looking at the maps.

I know it's cheeky, but if someone has a GPS tracklog of a nice 2hr-ish ride that they wouldn't mind sharing, it'd help get me out of doing the same old route!

For info, this is where we usually go:



Also interested in perhaps joining a group ride. What's the pace like? I appreciate that's tough question to answer!

Thanks!

gpx file would be excellent!

I might try and tag along if there's anything going on this weekend. Just need to check the plans for the w/e with the other half, I think I'm supposed to be repairing a fence on Sunday Rolling Eyes

thanks!

I'll be going up early Sunday, say 08:00 and don't mind giving you the full 4 hour tour. Could even stick in a cafe stop it you have time.

We can cover ALL the best trails.

Thanks. Prob not going to have time for a 4hr ride though. I might try and be there early and perhaps do a couple of hours, then peel off and head home.

Cheers

Decided to go today, seeing as it's forecast to chuck it down tomorrow. Managed to find plenty new trails with the help of some of these maps. Thanks! Very Happy

Will try and tag along to a Sunday ride sometime soon

Hi Jase,

I've got a loverly 50k loop which starts at the Woburn Sands woods, heads off over to Millbrook via Cranfield and then heads back to the woods via Steppingley and Eversholt. I try and stay off the roads, wherever possible and most of it is bridleway and very rideable, with only a few quite technical sections.

Hi N@th,

I have ridden with you guys some months back when the treads club visited. As I am now working in Bristol most weeks I have not been getting out much, so I would be greatful for the .gpx for this route so I can ride this route as and when the opportunity presents itself

cheers

Hi N@th,

myself and a couple of other chaps are riding the D2D this year at thetford so have been trying to get some cycling in locally, but dont really know any good routes to follow. we have explored a bit up at Woburn and have found a couple of routes now, but would it be possible to have this route so that we can explore them as well? I have a GPS that I can put them on if you would send them over? we are ideally looking for a route of about 12 miles.

also, I would love to join an evening ride on a Wednesday, but what standard is it? I am pretty unfit and hate hills! but enjoy riding the single track.
