Time to show you guys the best damn riding spot in the UK. Thrunton Woods in Northumberland. Mixture of old school moorland XC, dark, narrow, rooty, technical singletrack, amazing views, killer downhills and monstrous climbs. Miles and miles of off-the-radar ungraded trails known only to the lucky few.

Long run for some of you but you will not regret it. Usual good craic and fine company guaranteed.
