I set up Roots Riding as a way to share the great riding we have on offer in North Leeds and The Dales. Over the last year I have been tweaking routes and skills courses, setting up websites and social media and of course putting in countless hours exploring trails on the bike. After all the hard work, I’m really excited about what I’ve got to offer fellow riders. Hopefully the new Uplift Day movie will showcase some of the great trails and good times that are had while out in the hills.

Pace Cycles and CTC to launch premier Bike Centre in Dalby Forest
Pace Cycles has teamed up with the Forest Commission to open a new and exciting trail centre in partnership with CTC, the UK’s largest cycling charity, in Dalby Forest, near Pickering, North Yorkshire.
The trail centre will be launched as Dalby Bike Barn and the aim is to make Dalby Forest a recreation and social hub for local, regional and national visitors building on its already strong reputation as World Cup venue and site of a Tour of Britain stage.
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.
We all know access is important but to most of us it is something for other people to worry about. But as individuals and groups we can do an awful lot to preserve access where we already have it, and to support initiatives where we want to improve access
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.
We hope that Barrow Load will become an interactive way for the organisation (membership/supporters/friends) to share news and information, the content is not exhaustive but is more a pick ‘n mix of news and activities.
