    Hi , welcome to the world of mtb, you`ll love it in brum and either ride, cannock .. lickey hills etc, you also have clent or wyre forest near bewdley which is very good ....
    if you fancy something less hilly , then head over to sutton park , its ok for a few hrs of riding ... even the canals are ok to get out on for a few hrs .. what ever you do just enjoy it ..
