Words by Hannah Reynolds on Twitter and Instagram
We all get to a point when we fancy something a little different. We all know of popular bike parks and trail centres which offer concentrated fun and convenience, but what about hidden trails that lie just a little further beyond?
Hannah Reynolds has been out and about, chatting with fellow riders who offer a glimpse into their favourite trails around the UK.
Name of Rider: Isobel Riley
Favourite Ride: Forest of Bowland, Lancashire
How did you find it?
I grew up in Garstang, not far from the Forest of Bowland. After leaving home, travelling and working abroad I came back to the area and re-discovered my love for cycling.
My dad has always been a keen cyclist and is a founder member of Garstang Cycling Club so I started riding with them. The Forest of Bowland is really popular with local riders so I started to learn my way around by going out on the club rides. Whether I’m meeting friends for a quick spin or going out on a longer training ride it is the direction I head in most often.
