I've come to uni in liverpool from the isle of man and the main thing i've missed is my bike. Are there any downhill/ xc trails within easy travelling distance from liverpool? preferably without a car.

thanks for any help

    weve done the marin trail which takes less than 90 mins to get to an goin to landegla soon after xmas! which i reckon wil take us less than a hr easily to get to
    u could poss get the train to wrexham for that 1, not sure how far the train station is from there though
    the only thing in liverpool i can think of is road ridin as u can see sum nice places but thats about itlol
  • Ahhh Huyton ,The hubby comes from there and he says its all a bit pants round there for riding, he says Delamere is good to go to... bet its easy on the train from Liverpool
  • delamere, personally im not goin again unless they get sum singletrack etc etc in

    North Wales is the answer - got access to a car/? Some excellent trials within 90mins.

    I ride a loop around Delamere, around 2-3 hrs which is 70-80% singletrack. there's plenty there, you just have to find it. Also, there's the downhill/skills area just north of fox howl.
