Thetford Mountain Bike Experience

So this is a 'try out mountain biking'!  Thetford is flat and a mixture of fire roads(wide, sandy tracks) and single track.  Perfect  - for those that want to try mountain biking for the first time.   You will need a MOUNTAIN BIKE  which you can hire from the High Lodge if necessary (£7.50 for the first hour and £3.50 for each additional hour).

It's February - expect to get cold and muddy - but it will be fun!  I'm planning to do the intermediate route - which is undulating with plenty of tree roots ....  

Hope you can make it!  Julie

    What a great day we had:-)! The weather was perfect, great company. My legs feel like jelly right now but the experience was worth it. Thanks again Julie for organizing the ride and nice to meet Nick and Neil. Looking forward to the next ride.

    Weather for Sunday's looking bright if windy, so I'm planning on coming. If cycling feel free to join me on the 10:12 from Cambridge to Brandon and avoid the car park fees at High Lodge!

      Hi Neil, I can arrange a lift for you? My friend Pete is coming & can give you a lift. I should forewarn you that this is a training ride for two of my girlie friends b4 I take them to the peaks next week so its likely to be slow but fun. Pete is very fit tho so if you both get bored I wont be upset if you do an extra loop or two without us! We'll sort it ! Julie[masked]

    I'm a maybe. I guess the intermediate is the old red route, right?

      I think they downgraded the black to a red. So there are two reds, hence they changed their names.

      Mmm well I'm hoping to get over to Brandon first and do some of the trails over there.

    I'm new-ish to cycling and would love to try mountain biking. However, how are you guys planning on getting there? I am not driving. I can take a train to Thetford but I'm not sure how to get to the forest and back.

      Thanks for the offer Julie, but unfortunately I've injured my shoulder a few days ago and will need to take time out of exercise, which sucks. It's a shame as I've been wanting to try mountain biking for some time now. I'll keep an eye out for future events.

      Hope to see you out soon Naily

    I'm provisionally missing this one since I don't find I way to get there. But I'm looking for a road bike so I can be in for events closer to cambridge

      Hi Jose, sorry that you're missing this one but it is a little difficult to get to without a car. Look forward to seeing you on your road bike soon! Julie

    Hi, I've never done this route before, or any other mountain bike route in the UK. So I'm looking forward to it. I might bring a friend with me. In that case we will need to leave around 1pm so he will need to catch a train at 3pm.

      Just thought I'd mention that if your planning on doing the long route, it takes a good two hours.

      January 19, 2014

  • KP

    Hi, I have done this route before both long and short routes and am willing to do it again though I won't be going to fast as my fitness levels aren't that great. Don't want to hold you up pthough.

      Just realised I won't be able to make it till about two pm anyway as staying over someone's house nite before.
