I am looking for suggestions for good rides close to home.. I live in Wigan Lancashire and was wondering if there are any MTB routes near where I live, I think the closest good run is Gisburn but as I am new to this i'm not sure so any ideas would be appreciated.. :?

    Check out ,Lee Quarry and Landegla as well.
    Rivington has some good rides as well,not waymarked though so a bit of research will pay off with the better routes and direction to do them.
  • This month's MBR mag has details of a ride in the Trough of Bowland (the Dunsop Death ride.) It's part of their "Britains best singletrack" feature, I would say that's debatable, but it's local-ish.

    If your on Facebook have a look for Rivington MTB group we have about 1300 members and someone will be able to guide you round some good stuff.

    Closest is probably Rivington, Darwen Tower. Then you've got Lee Quarry, Cragg Quarry, Gisburn, Llandegla, Delamere.
