Mountain biking in the Peak District in the snow again!

I love biking in the snow. The landscape and trails change so dramatically in such a short time, and its great to ride snow-covered trails that you’ve already ridden in rain, wind, sun, baking heat, and whatever else we put up with (enjoy).
On this occasion, the drifts were a bit bigger than I’d expected, but it was still a great ride.

Mountain biking in the snow – sherwood pines, Nottingham.

Sherwood pines is a nice little place to ride – the main trail is quite short, but is pretty much 100% twisty fast singletrack, and you can get a couple of loops done in two hours. I went for a ride there recently in the heavy snow, and I was so lucky to have the trail to myself. The snow was fresh – no foot prints or tyre tracks, and it was deathly silent in the woods with the snow falling heavily. Absolutely brilliant, although I couldn’t feel my feet after 15 minutes or so…
