Hi all, Im Andy

As the title states Im new to London, currently living in Stoke Newington. Into fast flowing all mountain, single track, like going down hill fast but by no means a hard core DH'er. Also like decent sized dirt jump that are sized for full suspension bikes and long travel hard tails.

I usually ride Cwmcarn on a weekly/ monthly basis and Coed Landegla, with the odd stint to Afan

So whats down in these parts to ride and is anyone often up for day time rides?

Cheers Andy

Hi Andy,

Theres a good mixture of stuff about localish to keep most happy. But theres also a lot of organised days away, I'm out of action at the moment but am always willing to drive to get some good riding in.
Aston Hill, Chicksands, Woburn sands, Rogate/Tilgate all fairly local for dh/mini dh stuff.
Epping and Surrey hills would be your best bet for singletrack type stuff in the woods.

Hello dude

Check the trails page for whats local - http://www.essexhertsmtb.co.uk/mtb-trails.php and the London page for how to get to them from London http://www.essexhertsmtb.co.uk/mtb-trai ... biking.php

Your only 25 min ride from Epping forest which has good trails for inside the M25 www.essexhertsmtb.co.uk/mtb-trails/epping-forest.php

Alright Andy,

I'm in Sheperds Bush so not too far away from you. I ride a lot of dh / freeride / singletrack / trail centres.

Ride up in N.Wales quite a lot, would like to check out South Wales a bit more, drop me a PM if you are riding anytime soon.
