Im usually up and around Dalby, with living in Bridlington. Been out from Skidby Mill with Eats dirt and friends and co. Can usually make a ride on a sunday somewhere, been looking to do more rides in the dales, moors and the peaks. However,being a student I can't always go out every week.

I was thinking of going to Dalby this week, hoping it was going to be icy and full of snow, but I aint been able to get time off work. Had a couple of hours spare yesterday, so did a road ride from Kingswood, down Wawne Road through to Beverley then onto Walkington and back through Cott and home.

What are the trails around Brantingham like at the mo, are the rideable or just boggy?

We went to Brantingham a few wks back and it wasnt too bad really. Was boggy in places but the majority of it was rideable. As we got into brantingham we turned left and went passed the church, then turned off the main rode up the hill and that was a nice off road section to south cave. Has anyone got any other good routes around there. I think were definatly doing dalby on sunday.

As Altern8 says at the top of the thread, we usually head out of this area for the riding off road, only because we didnt think there would be any decent riding around Hull area. The only off road I do around here is either the Hornsea Track or River Hull Bank. So is it worth giving the trails you mention a go if we cant be bothered to go further afield?

Not thought about doing trails out on the wolds towards Driff/Market Weighton way? Lots of trails around that area, going out towards Millington, Warter, Wetwang, Garton-on-the-wolds etc. However, they are more dry routes then wet ones. Im going to the Isle of Skye biking this month, however thinking of going to Hamsterley or Wharncliffe woods next month, could arrange to have a meet or so?
