    Hi All,

    Having left my bike when I moved down to London about 6 months ago, I'm starting to get withdrawal symptoms!

    I've been looking into doing some off-roading, and found Herts TRF who aren't too far from me. I've never been off-roading before though, and don't have a bike, so I want to have a go before I commit.

    Has anyone got any recommendations for schools/training in the area? I'm based in Haringey, North London - I'm assuming I'll have to travel outside London, which is fine, but I'll be getting the train/buses which cuts down the options a fair bit.

    Cheers

    Looks like Waterloo to Staplehurst is 50 mins.

    Than a half hour bus to Sandhurst.

    Just go out with Herts TRF, let them know your experience level and they'll take you out on some easy lanes - if they say "let's go down the Old Bourne" politely decline, it's a muddy hell.

    If you're willing to travel there are loads of easy lanes round Thetford, Norfolk or Suffolk TRF will show you round, or you can do what I did about 20 years ago, get an OS map, work out where the Byways Open to All Traffic are and ride them - if you're going to go out by your self get a light bike, ride slowly and carry a trowel to dig yourself out of the mud with.
