I'm just 30 min up the road and can sneek off for a couple of hours mid week. Don't know any trails up thatway but Kielder is only 20 min from Haltwistle and is supposed to be good.
What dates do you have in mind? Are you doing the Trackrod with the Sunbeam about that time? Me and a few of the lads are making a weekend of it and doing Dalby on the Sunday if anyones up for it?

Cheers
Si

Dalby is the forest just north of Pickering, it has some good trails, cafe, local pubs etc and worth a visit. Been riding in there 20 years now and it's got busier but still great.

We'll be in Langdale all day but will be calling in to service later before heading off to the campsite. A few of us are in Dalby the next day of anyone wants to join us.
