Introduction - how this blog works

The idea of this blog is to share some of my favourite bits of mountain biking with the world. Principally so that you too can enjoy the bits I've enjoyed. And avoid the bits I've hated. So many people have given us advice on biking since we started - what bikes to buy, where to ride, how to ride. So this is my chance to feed a bit back to that body of knowledge.

I'd really welcome your comments - what have I raved about that you thought was awful? What gems did I miss when I visited your local riding spot? Is a bit that I said was awful actually sweet singletrack in the summer or when you're riding well? Comments will help this resource be improved for all readers, and also give me some hints as to where to ride next!

I've written a load about what we've ridden over the last year, and grouped it geographically. My plan is to add to it in the future, hopefully using the tags to keep each region together, though I haven't quite worked out how it will work yet. I may just need to start all over again in a year to keep things organised more sensibly - I'm not really sure a blog is the most sensible format - but it seems the best for me as I'm not terribly motivated to learn any more code than the day job necessitates.

West Yorkshire outwith Calderdale and Bingley

The publication of Benji Howarth's new guidebook inspired us to find some West Yorkshire routes other than around Hebden Bridge and Bingley.  These are some of the best legal bits.   (There were some footpaths, and some dull bits too.....)

The Pennine Way from Wessenden Head (0700073) down to Wesseden Reservoir (057088) above Marsden is a lovely long singletrack descent with nothing too challenging on it but good views.

The descents into Newsholme Dean (019405) both from Newsholme (019400) and Todley Hill (013410).   Both narrow, little used tracks and quite tech.   Needs to be dry.

On Ringstone Edge Moor (038187) a short little section of Packhorse slabs.   There were other bits round Rishworth but no bridleways worth a special trip.
