Nottingham Mountain Bike Ride:
Move over Robin Hood as this time it is the awesome riding that will steal the lime light. We explore Sherwood Forest itself and the surrounding area with the River Trent making an appearance.
This beautiful route takes us wandering in the footsteps of Robin Hood, and my, won’t we all be merry men after this! The mixture of broad forest trails and hard-packed fast tracks are a real blast! A large percentage of the route takes place within Sherwood Forest itself.

Note: These are approximate distances and may vary slightly depending on the road conditions and weather on the day. If you wish to change the route distance, please tell a member of the RideIt! team on the day.
