Hebden Bridge trails are rideable all year round. If you stay on the steep valley sides the water just runs away and if it’s windy you’re protected. Our trails are gritstone based which means there’s a good level of grip and even when conditions are wet you can usually find traction somewhere.

Of course it’s not always grim up north and now that the sun is getting his flat cap on and the green shoots of spring are popping up it’s time to start another season of skills and guiding days.

As well as being the base for the Northern Rock Tours, the Alpine Tech skills courses take place on Hebden trails as well as many private one to one and group bookings. People travel from far and wide to ride the trails, progress their riding and enjoy the food and drink of the town.

The trails in this short edit are classic Hebden: rocky, technical and fast and a firm favourite on our days. Check out the courses or trips we offer and maybe come and see for yourself what all the fuss is about.
