Ive just bought my bike to UNI, at loughborough.
- I went out for the first time today on a bit of rec'y of area, including a nice cold pint on the side of the river soal, and having several steam trains drive past me...

But it was mainly roads and open tracks, and im wondeing if theres anywhere a bit more XC or DH?
- I have a OS map of the area, and was looking at going towards "Bardon Hill" or Charnwood forest or somthing. Whats that like?

Also, are there any LBS's in the loughborough area?
