/ FAO Mountain Bikers in Sheffield - Lady Cannings
And humbly suggest we all chuck some money in the pot
Looks rather small to me - area is only about 1/2sqKM... am I missing something?
It's not a trail centre, just a trail !
> It's not a trail centre, just a trail !
But it's not going to be very long is it?
Worth driving up from Surrey ? No
Worth including on a loop that involves Stanage, Houndkirk, Blacka etc ? Definitely
Actually this is just one of a number of initiatives/proposals which will hopefully encourage people to ride from Sheffield to the peak (as opposed to driving there)
Are they planning on a few of these trails linked by existing B/ways? If so then great, whilst the bridleways in the peak are great, it would be nice to have some fun burmed descents as well!
Yep, Lady Cannings plantation is part of Houndkirk moor and bounded on 2 sides by BOATS - unfortunately heavily used by 4x4s and sanitised by the council, but nonetheless useful link routes. And fun in the snow! There are a couple of excellant descents and nice climbs on Blacka, which is about a mile to the south. I probably ride through the area about once or twice a week, so the more variety the better !
Still always good to get a few more track to ride.
