    Not far from the ‘new’ town of Milton Keynes, Woburn Bike Park is an easy train journey away from central London, which boasts not only blue and red built trails, but also some great jump lines, as frequented by pro freestyle rider Matt Jones.It’s important to note that you’ll need a permit to ride here, which you can either buy as a day pass, costing around £5, or as an annual permit, if you’d like to come back and ride frequently. More details about these can be found at greensandtrust.org/Event/bike-pass-day-ticket or annual permits at greensandtrust.org/Event/aspley-bike-pass.The trails have been built and are maintained by a keen group of volunteers, who welcome new builders to their regular build days. Why not get involved and meet some new riders in the process?This Tour is an easy ride over from the train station at Bletchley, or you could park at Woburn Bike Park if you’re arriving by car. From the train station, there’s a short stretch along the road to Water Eaton, before passing through Waterhall Park, over both the Grand Union Canal and River Ouzel, and along a bridleway to Little Brickhill. From the village, you can take the road up through the forest to Aspley Heath and along the unpaved Sandy Lane to reach the trailhead. Here I’ve included a lap of the red-rated Longslade trail in New Wavendon Wood, although there’s also an easier blue-rated trail on the other side of Sandy Lane in Wavendon Wood. Check out the jumps too when you’re there, and session the tricky parts and fun sections of the trails to your heart’s content before following the bridleway back to the train station in Bletchley to make your way home again.
