Wild Boar Chase MTB ride.

A mountain bike ride in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley using forest tracks, bridleways and short sections of minor roads.
Choose from longer, tougher routes to shorter easier routes.
Distances from 20 miles to 43 miles.

All riders cycle most of the Small Boar (the 20 mile option) For 2018 we have a re-designed the Small Boar with the early pinch-points removed and some completely new sections.

The next distance, the Woody Boar (the 26 mile option) stays within the main Forest.

The Hog (the 40 mile option) also visits the edge of the Wye Valley.

The Full Boar (the 46 mile option) visits Wales when it leaves The Hog, descends to the river Wye, then rejoins the Hog to return to the Forest.

You can change the distance you ride on the day, no need to inform us. We will track riders on the Woody Boar, the Hog and the Full Boar by scanning their bar codes.
