    If you really want to make the most of your visit to Swinley, you can combine both the blue and red mountain biking trails into a mega 13.5 mile (21.8 km) loop.

    Starting from the Lookout trail centre, you take the first half of the blue trail to warm up, with some more gentle climbs and flatter berms, before reaching the start of the red trail. Complete a full loop of the red, from segments red 1 to red 33, before rejoining the mellower blue trail to finish, which takes you right back to the trail centre and car park.

    Before attempting this route, make sure you’re happy on both blue-rated and more technical red-rated singletrack trails. If you think you’ve bitten off more than you can chew, you can always skip a few sections or head back to the trail centre via the huge network of wide gravel roads here.

    If you’re time crunched and really want to squeeze all you can out of your ride, this double loop is a real winner! However, if you want to take it a bit more leisurely and perhaps stop for a break in the middle, you can still ride the blue and red trails separately, with a return to the trail centre cafe halfway round.
