Does anyone have any CX/MTB routes you could share with me?
I'm still a member but have not been out with you for a good few years and have never down much on the MTB since moving here. Anything from a hour upwards. I am looking to be able to ride out from the door. I live central Winchester. So far the only areas I have done down here is around Crab wood, but dont really know anything out side its boundary's.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, many thanks.

Hi Michele

I use Komoot. It's an excellent app, which gives lots of options on routes which people have used before. Certainly there are many around Winchester. The advantage of the app is that you can set it up to follow a route, and it will give you an orientated map, with voice directions, on your phone. It may also synch to another gps-based system if you have one.

Hope that helps.

Best wishes

Nick

Let me know if you want any company - I will send you some routes as mentioned in the PM there is a ride on Sunday after Christmas if you want to join that that will cover the area to the south and east of Winchester.... Can point out other routes as we pass them

I use OS get a map to map routes which I find easy to use and enjoy coming up with routes.
