Delamere Forest has two marked trails for bikes, both are pretty easy and are on wide forest tracks. The forest however hides a trail of pretty good singletrack and decents and a few pretty technical bits. These are not signposted so the only way to find them is to either ride with someone who knows the forest well, or look out for likely trails and get to know it well yourself. The area north of the road that goes through the middle of the forest is particuarly good.

The area that Andy mentions North of the minor road has recently gone digging crazy. Useful for the downhill/jumping fraternity with some well constructed berms to cannon you round those bends.

Beware, however, if you are a returning regular. Some of the jumps have been constructed in the middle of established singletrack and you definitely wouldn't want to ride them without scoping them first. A mate of mine spent the night in casualty (...or should that be ER?) after taking rather too much air, crashing and knocking himself unconscious. Apart from that its great!

There are some good "initiation test" descents around the area known locally as No Brains

Customer Service

Go as you please. Better in weekday evenings and early at weekends. Popular with families and walkers during weekend primetime.

There are some good downhill sections in Delamere. The uphills are pretty easy. It can get boring if you do the same route all the time, so I recommend you look for new ones as you go. There's more to the forest than you think - so keep exploring.

The north bit is the best for jumps and stuff. There is quite a good downhill bit with berms and dropoffs.
No-Brains is ok but if you continue to the right and ignore the first piece of single track you get to another one which has two fantastic drop-offs.
Also there is a 6 ft pit jump which is worrying but actually dead easy if you got the guts.
The southen end is a dead loss for play riding. The bomb hole was good but its now shit. However there is some great single track around that area.
Also if any one knows where i mean there is another area with about 20 doubles and a load of small ones for practing. i ain't done them yet but i saw some people from MBUK having a photo shoot there. Its good but i don't think that i should tell you where it is. Just don't go too fast cos i saw some one break 2 teath on the upslope of the next jump.

I'm not a playbiker, or particularly good at downhills, and delamere isn't the usual x-country kind of riding that I do, but it is very useful to develop skills that you use on nearly every ride you do. The fact it is such a compact area means that if you fail to ride something, you can simply say stuff it, and try again, and again until you have it nailed. This then knocks on to longer rides in harder terrain, as the realisation that you have ridden similar trail hazards in delamere takes you over things you wouldn't have ridden before. Similar, in fact to Coed, but it takes me only 20 mins to get to Delamere, whereas Coed is stuck in the middle of nowhere,

from the visitor center car park turn right, and where the forest ends, hang right here, and follow the edge of the forest around. This will get you to most of the best bits.

Theres some pretty good short downhills around(unfortunately I mean short). Most of them are just past no brains.Theres some pretty cool jumps around, especially Ricks six pack(in the most well known 'secret' spot in the land).Bring some spades and don't forget to get some munch at the Delemare caffe/bike shop(free ads theres nothing like em' eh')
