Ages since I last rode up the Chase. This forestry land gap many sharp hills and sweeping, fast descents. I stopped at the cafe by the visitor’s centre. It was busy, but with so many staff, the wait was not too long.
There are endless possibilities on the Chase. I saw loads of bridle paths and other marked cycle routes. Most looked ideal for adventures on a cyclo-cross bike. Sadly, the bike shop by the cafe had nothing promising they are dealers for Giant. Giant’s cross bikes are too small for me.
The comms tower appears to be under demolition.
