    well havent yet found a goodspot to build 1 yet but there is plenty of places to explore sum nice rides aswell been riding round alot resenlty only problem seems to b is that god dam snow we had has saturated the ground alot so spongey atm in most forest's i have been to.
    there is a few other places i have been reading about on the net but i do know its wet ride them atm aswell haha roll on the summer :)
  • Don't know of any downhill around here but there are miles of routes to ride if just getting out riding in the Test Valley is what you are after. I regularly do miles around it on a Saturday, but its so boggy right now I'm using the road bike :cry: apart from last weekend when I got a tour of Longmoor from a mate over near Petersfield :D

    Just north of Andover there are some woods we did as part of a test Valley ride one year. Cant remember the name right now

    Farley Mount near Winchester is trying to get some legal tracks built with the land owners and the group can be found on Facebook.
