Just starting out doing Downhill riding and really really into it. I like close to the Peak District and willing to travel anywhere. Just wondering if anyone could recommend some good places to go or routes to take? Also what are the best places and sites for info and parts?

Cheers Everyone,
Ryan

Hi Ryan

Look on Facebook for the group called coggers

Bike Park Wales is still my favourite place to ride downhill. Check them out. This site is one of the best for parts, gear and info. Check out GMBN and GMBN TECH vids on YouTube for pretty much anything to do with mountain biking. They have a huge collection of tutorial vids for bike maintenance, skills and general info

Thank you! I will have a look for coggers right now. I will definitely check out Bike park Wales and the tutorials and shop. The vids should really help with getting started.

Forgot to say this sites buy and sell is great for used and sometimes new parts. For brand new some of the better online stores I use are chainreactioncycles, wiggle, tredz, leasurelakes, and a couple of European sites like bike-discount.de. It’s always worth a quick google to find reviews if a site is genuine or any good

Swinley Forest, Aston Hill, Chicksands, Rogate, BPW, Windhill, Forest of Dean. Some good riding out there once we are allowed to leave home. If you head out, send me a PM I'd likely join you.

You have a huge amount of riding right on your doorstep if you live in the Peaks, assuming you are happy to pedal and aren't specifically looking for somewhere with an uplift etc.

Loads of cheeky DH tracks near to where you are mate. Best thing to find em is get Strava & do a segment explore on the following areas (move the gradient sliders to flat / downhill).

Goyt Valley near Buxton, find a road called the street on the map & search the woods on either side.
Win Hill next to ladybower Resevoir & Macclesfield Forest are both riddled with DH tracks.
A couple of good trails on Hobson’s moor, the big hill behind Active Copley leisure centre in Stalybridge too.

As far as official pay to play places go, you’ve got Farmer John’s in Marple & Havoc bike park near Todmorden. Both have Facebook pages / websites.
