Some lovely meandering wild techy singletrack.

Did this at the weekend, great bit of peddalling with a good mix of singletrack and technical ascent/decent, best done in good weather as very exposed and the odd boggy patches!.

Description:-
Best done in the summer to avoid bogginess, this is a figure of 8 loop across the bridleways of Hexhamshire Common. Proper XC cycling! If you are coming from the East, you could park just south of Rowley Wood and do the route from the top of the figure of 8.

Did this at the weekend, nice easy rideout, a nice weather ride as pretty exposed. Nearby stobbs cross is a better ride with a bit more to it.

Did this Saturday. It's a route from Derek Purdy's Northumberland book. Approach Splitty Lane end from Catton to avoid the initial leg burning climb out of Allendale. The sometimes indistinct moorland... read whole comment...

Disclaimer: I have not personally ridden this route.

An exposed moorland route, the trail is often quite variable across the moor and, even when dry, there is often still boggy parts and standing water.
