A short but intense ride around Coxley Woods.


Muddy in the winter.

Detailed description

Please note: the owners of the wood, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, would like to point out that cycling is not permited on the permissive footpaths which run through Coxley woods. If you do venture this way bear this in mind. Also, look out for illegal motorcrossers, who tear around the woods causing lots of noise and erosion. Some dog walkers have stretched ropes at head height to stop these, which is obviously very dangerous to anybody passing that way.


An evening ride around Coxley on a cold, dark night in Jaunuary. The combination of dark and mud made what would normally be easy riding pretty challenging.
