BSO Guided MTB Ride with Polly Clark

Sold Out

Join Polly for a 25km circuit from Thornbridge Outdoors through the White Peak with great views to the North

Suitability: You need some off-road riding experience

The route is approx 25km and should take about 3 hours. It starts off on the Monsal trail before heading up some very pretty bridleways with lovely views to the North before dropping back down a lovely grassy descent back onto the Monsal trail and back to Thornbridge. Terrain is a mixture of grassy tracks and farm type tracks as well as small sections of minor road. A couple of short tough climbs might see most people walking - but the rest of the ride is pretty much suitable for beginners who have a bit of off road experience.
