Im from Cornwall.... I love it down here, the only thing we lack now is northshore which is none existant which is a shame, i normally ride xc and freeride/all mountain so its all good.

Portreath dirtjumps are good down here, im guessing you do more xc and all mountain riding?.

Bisso is apparently quite good down here although i havent been, theres plenty of places i havent looked so still load of places to explore.

Havent heard of any reports of stealing from anyone i know, i left my bike unlocked outside school for 6 hours and it was still there when i came back so its pretty good... Bring locks just in case, people will steal anything if you give them a chance.

Without a doubt, the Brecon Beacons are the coolest place to mbike in the entire fricking world. Book yourself into a B&B, ride all day, and drink great beer all night.

I live in London, but if you're in need of a ride buddy for the Brecons, let me know.

Ive heard Wales has some amazing trails and routes. They have 5 or 6 dedicated mountainbiking forests now dont they....?

Really good to see someone putting the effort in properly, i think I'll take a trip up there when i pass my test.

I have a mate in Rochdale who keeps on threatening to take me out on a ride whenever I go back home to Stafford but I've never had the time. Where's good in the Greater Manchester area?

yeh i think that breacon beacons is one of them.. i know a few.. got trail maps for them out of what mtb magazine!! looks great.. unfortunetly i have to get the train to places as im 16 etc... no car..no money..got a job (at halfords bike hut )

get some money properly to get a shiney new kona/trek/specialized!!

and to be honest there are no good places to have a proper ride in Manchester... best gettin the train out to wales or go to delamere forest...wicked place to go!!
