Over the last few years, mountain bikes have been out shone by the road bike side of our business. Our routes are firmly in mountain bikes and riding our local trails so we’ve upped our game and taken mountain matters into our own hands.
Lets not kid ourselves it’s been cold year so far. Dig days up until now have involved thermal layers and when we have swung a mattock into the frozen ground we’ve many times nearly blinded people with the shrapnel. So it was a joy to get up on Sunday morning and find a clear blue sky waiting …View full post
It’s that time of year again! Last year a bunch of the Stainburn Trail Crew regulars took the Warren Boulder Trail by the scruff of its boulders and gave it a cleaning it would never forget. Finding lost trail, redefining the line and giving a few bits of loving repair where it was needed to …View full post

FC and Singletraction want to see about getting things back up and running. So FC will be holding a meeting about Dalby’s cycle trails on Sunday, 19 February. The meeting is scheduled to start at 10am and is being held in the courtyard community room at Dalby.
We all know how tricky it can be to cross over the busy road to Norwood.
Sometimes it’s down right dangerous crossing over to the natural trail, not only for people on their bikes but also for motorists, who suddenly find a load of people in the road.
The local council and Forestry have asked that for safety reasons could cyclists using the unofficial cleared lines in Norwood Edge please access the forest from Stainburn Moor car park.
