Club members only ride at Cannock Chase, Staffordshire. Kindly organised and led by Club member, Steve Attwood.
Purpose built trail centre but feels more much more natural. Two part of the route include ‘follow the dog’ and ‘the monkey’ totalling around 15 miles of mostly red graded routes with a few black options which can be bypassed. Expect a fun and medium paced route of the Monkey Trail and Follow the Dog. Cannock features a mixture of natural and primarily man made singletrack trails, including root and rock sections, technical climbs, fast technical singletrack descents the odd bit of northshore and berms galore. If you are not familiar with the great riding at Cannock then take a look on the Chase Trails website here.
