There is a parking charge of £2 (I think), there are NO FACILITY'S at the car park, So please bear this in mind.
Please bring adequate clothing as the weather can be very changeable and we will be traveling in some remote parts of the moors.

There are two STEEP hills and a few not so steep, its the last hill from the café where the ride gets its name...The Hell of Horcum.

The Newsam ride was graded 2 out of 5, this ride is graded 3 out of 5,
There is a lot more technical riding in this as well as hills thats the reason its graded 3 out 5 of ride.

Hope this helps..
