Not long moved to cheadle in stoke, i hear my nearest place to ride is dimmingsdale so just wondering if anyone knows anything about it, any goods routes, trails, tracks?
Have walked around there a fair bit there and although it's a scenic area there's not a lot going on apart a couple of bridleways down from the Youth Hostel. There are a lot of tracks but most are footpaths or climbers paths leading to the rock edges.
Could always start in Denstone, go through the JCB test track, up to the Alton Towers hotel, then down to the railway track, along to the Chained Oak and cut in there and go around Dimmingsdale.
There are some steeper, jumpy, DH-ish bits on to the old railway track - not sure where they start but the locals probably do
There is also Hanchurch woods which you probably know of. Betd 01782 629462 do a regular Tues evening ride 5:45 from the Poacher's Cottage Trentham
