mtb, go for shining cliff woods at ambergate thro to black rock above matlock, or go to the desert at ollerton (mansfield) most mx riders know it.

 im trying to arrange a dh meeting locally in the summer too (news to come).

loads of bmx tracks, harworth and hexthorp near doncaster.
warsop near mansfield, chesterfield, and bulwell (nottm) bmx that im still building

I've heard good things about Ambergate (derbyshire isn't it?) from a few of the lads who race (mark weightman and his mates) they all ride there and reckon its short but pretty sh*t hot for practicing on.

and mark is not the sort of guy to describe something as challenging if its not.  I suspect you wern't looking in the right place.

ive ridden with Mark up there a few times, if you climb to the top (above the factory) and travel along until theend you can blast down the stream or straight down over therock stepsthrough the trees.

otherwise on the other side of the road to Matlock theres a decent spot we used to ride motorbike trials on. this side has rocky decents that can betaken at speed.

we did find the stream and its quite a long trail :) & its ok but you need to pedal a lot and had a lot of what seemed like very grumpy ramblers and dog walkers,despite getting there early,the one d/h trail we did find :D looked ok but because of a lot of heavy rain at the time it was just to soft to ride :'(so maybe i'll look again in the 8) summer 8)
