Hi all,

I moved down to Gloucester a couple of years ago and subsequently discovered moutain biking. Have only really ridden trail centre stuff so I am looking to find some more local trails. I'm just after some pointers on where to start!

What is the situation with riding in cranham woods? all ok?
I have seen a few vids on youtube of a route starting from the car park at birdlip viewing point and heading towards bridlip village, is it ok to ride this?
Similarly I have seen a route starting in the woods at the back of the car park/garden of the Royal George in Birdlip, again is it ok to ride this? The pub don't mind you blasting off out the back of the garden?
Stockend woods ok to ride?
There also looks to be loads of potential in the woods next to the car park at Haresfield beacon, at the top of beaconlane? This all good to ride?
Finally where is the best place to park/access routes on Leckhampton and Cleeve hill? I will need to drive to these so help with where to leave the car and get started on the bike would be ace!

Sorry for the mega long post but any pointers re the above would be great!!
