"open any map and you’ll immediately recognise the network of roads and railways, look much more closely and gradually a labyrinth older of paths, tracks and bridleways appear ... Hidden Tracks. I've linked these together to form a series of fascinating rides for cyclists of all levels to enjoy."
Part of keeping sane during 2020 for Charlie Codrington, founder and lead rider of Hidden Tracks, entailed a lot of cycling - many hours poring over OS maps, followed up by many hours exploring routes out of London along little-known bridleways and byways. ‘Charlie’s Routes’ had already become legendary in the club cycling world, but with encouragement from his wife Sarah, these intriguing yet hard to find routes have been edited to suit all riders, whatever their level of skill.
