Don’t know the woods, but we can give it a go some time. At this time of year, we’ll need a Saturday or Sunday free, as evenings are getting dark too early. I’ll be in the Sheffield area next Tuesday visiting friends so I might have look at the woods.
Do these conditions pre-date the privatization of British Rail, in your opinion? I have not been to the UK since the late 80s and the system seemed to work pretty well to me. I’ve heard that splitting up the railway among various owners has made the pricing and schedules incomprehensible and generally a great bother.
ok. What I was trying to say was that everything is close together. I’m sure the trains are crowded, but at least you dont have to drive fow two days or take a plane to get to the other side of your country.
Arghh. you know what I mean. Plus, the UK is such a nice place (people, landscape, monty python, etc.). But dont get me wrong, Canada still kicks ass. I really need to visit Britain sometime. All my family, but me, has been there and they say your country kicks ass. One of these days…

Trying to be helpful. Why don’t you draw a virtual line the size of
Britain around the place where you live. There must be plenty of good
MUni trails in there and they’re all close together by your
definition. Your problem stems from your desire to ride all over your
country - but why would you?
I don’t know about 2 days but with these damn road works, I could get to Wharncliffe Woods (about 45 miles) quicker than your side of town (about 8 miles). And I’ll never use the trams anyway, as I don’t the trains (I have my reasons but that’s more off topic).
Anyway, I was thinking (dangerous) that there should be a site with info and reviews of places to Muni in the UK. Hmm maybe I…and if I…then I could…and if someone else…
Is there a site for Muni places in other parts of our small globe?
