Not sanctioned trails. Ride at your own risk!

Some of the better off piste descents (some very steep and technical) all linked with logical and rideable climbs to the south of Pedalabikeaway (around Lodge Hill, Bix Slade, Nagshead, Elwood [Dowies] and Shutcastle inclosures).

This route can be extended (if you're keen) by transitioning through Beechenhurst and Speech House to get to the top of Staple Edge, sessioning the DH trails there, and then descending down from the Rising Sun PH on either Big Pig or Dr John's trails and picking up the trails again at Parkend.

This route is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

 Is the Quarry obvious? And is there a way to work around it at all?
