Introduction

A mixture of on and off road riding around York.

Conditions

Mostly farm tracks and quiet roads. Some parts are overgrown in summer, and muddy in winter. In the middle of summer, the nettles and other undergrowth are at the peak of their growth, and some parts of the paths get a little bit chocked up with vegetation. In winter mud is the order of the day.

Narrative

After a series of really sharp downpours the trail was really, really wet. Thankfully the ground under the surface slime was actually pretty dry and although conditions where at times slippery the route lacked the mud of winter.

The bridleway from Poppleton has recently been renovated and some of the worst mud and other harards have been filled in.
