  • This loop is mainly on bridleways that are not suitable for road bikes.
  • Certain sections of the bridleway will be muddy in the winter and soft sand in the summer so may require you to dismount and push through.
  • All the trails are shared with other countryside users so please remember to ‘share with care’ and give way to horses & walkers.
  • Most gradients are moderate but might include short steep sections. Keep an eye out for small technical trail features such as tree roots and rock.
