“of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt” – John Muir
A quote that I try to live by and one that puts a little more fun into the everyday commute. Birmingham is not the place you would of thought of as being good for this or mountain biking for that matter but what was once a struggle is now what I live for… spotting that gap in the trees! find it and your there, a whole new world within the city!
You will be amazed by the places you can ride right here in Birmingham and to see where the canals of the Birmingham can take you is unreal. Birmingham has more parks than any European city with plenty of dirt trails, woodlands and greenery just waiting to be explored. Its definitely worth taking the time to stop and look around, I look forward to sharing with people my Birmingham, the one not filled full of concrete but the urban Jungle I call home and the mighty rush one can get riding the unknown paths of the city on a mountain bike! …maybe with a few steps thrown in just for fun.
