Someone is holding her brother prisoner in exchange for a gold-and-onyx box covered in mysterious runes, so Mary Hurst boldly sets out from the family vicarage to find the priceless artifact.

A gaggle of bicyclists
Arriving at 2pm, after an 11am Fry up - we looked ready for the hills.
The hire bikes looked rather decent and they were good to ride as well. Still not as good as my Peace (in my opinion). I chose to ride the XCR at first which was a big mistake for me. I had gotten used to the Peace so much that it just felt like hard inefficient work cycling the XCR. I don't understand gears or suspension anymore! Half way along the green, I just had to swap back for the Peace. I was happy again.
We all went to the Green trail to warm up which was actually rather fun! Sweeping corners on a downhill slope with no roots or rocks to worry about. Go as fast as you dare which made it a brilliant warm up.
Everyone had a go on at least part of the Green trail which was very good.
Dan and Louise went back to the green trail again, and once more whilst Mark, Oli, Matthew and I went looking for a red.
Whilst scrambling up the long track to the start of the orange, and the start of the lower red I began to wonder if I should have just got a lift up (?2 a time). I pushed on stubbornly on the single speed racing Mark before opening up a gap, I was quite surprised at how I was coping with the long incline! Arriving at the lower Red start point, we all took a well needed breather before going onto the stones. It was remarkably smooth on the Peace, I firmly beleive the big wheels made all the difference. Soon picked up speed before some tight corners. A slope appeared - little Red, down the slope I go. A big slope appeared - Aires Rock, down the slope I didn't go. The others would only describe it as a cliff face and had absolutely no intention on going down it, whilst I was there for 10 minutes umming and arring. I overthought the cliff and chickened out! More tight corners appeared when I had too much speed and then a climb into some woods. I waited for the others to catch up and was pleased to see they were all together and relatively uninjured. The boardwalk then appeared looking deceptively easy. It was very twitchy in places and you had to wonder just how close the back wheel was to the edge after pointing the front so close. Out of the boardwalk onto the Orange track, jump, jump, jump and then back at the car park. Damn that was good. Onwards to the upper Red!
Mark and Oli decided that the lower red was good, but wanted to go and do the Green again. We waited for Dan to get back - he was very keen to go on the Red and after a short rest for him he grabbed the XCR and we were off!
The climb up again was harder (tired now) but still remarkably comfortable on the Peace. The upper Red was now the target. It seemed an age away with a whole lot more climbing to be done before even arriving at the start of the Red/Black routes, at least it wasn't a fireroad anymore! Then it threatened to rain, rained and then stopped as we reached the top. A quick breather, wishing I had a camera on me and then we head off down. It was very easy, roll and turn for most of the red which made it just perfect for all of us. The occasional optional challange appeared, which the Peace begged to try - some large rocks, over them off the otherside and then down the hill. Matthew unfortunetly did a whoopsie and fell off the rocks and slammed the bike bell into his thigh. A little bit annoying since we were very much still at the top. Who knew that the rest of the track would feel so short! We were out on the fire road again and headed up to the lower red. Getting difficult now on the Peace, must be getting very tired! A long breather at the top and we were off again. Roll, Turn, roll faster, turn, brake, drop down little red, "Banzai", aires rock, "Woooo", legs turn to jelly as brain processes that I went down the cliff face! I was so happy I did it, that I didn't care that I was unable to ride anymore. My Jelly legs were terrible! I continued along the red without so much accuracy until we decided to call it a day. The orange start wasn't far away and it looked smooth. We headed for that, and the others decided to go back down to the fire road. I hit the orange with a bit more umph than I normally would do with unknown tracks and found myself riding high up the berms and really enjoying it. The jumps were a bit more of a challenge as I have no control of my bike in the air. I mostly rolled over these with the bike naturally going a couple of inches into the air before misjudging one and cycling through a ditch! Rolled down to the bottom, and met the others after them just getting back.
Good Day. I'm coming back!
Singletrack at Kielder
Part of the red route at Kielder Forest. The mountain bike trails are nice - short but sweet, with a gritty high adhesion (and abrasion) surface. Some easy climbing on singletrack followed by a more technical ascent, then a ride along the high tops mostly on fireroad (it was foggy and cold so my camera battery was flat) followed by an interesting descent along well made singletrack. About 15 k's? Something like that anyway.
The trail in the photo is accessed from Butteryhaugh car-park, and is the start of the mountain-biking trails. There's plenty of footpaths too.
