Thanks! Will reach out to him. He is in this forum?

Leap also created the Rem UK riding spot guide/freeride map (here) :)
Rem also has links to OS maps etc on the mission planner (here)

Also agree with Brennig, i bought good ol' paper OS maps (Explorer series) covering my whole area many years ago. It's fun studying the contours and working out where to go next! I've explored/ridden the Chilterns pretty thoroughly now and ironically most of the 'best' (ie my preffered fave) spots are 10 mins from my flat :D
However, you don't need brakes...

btw i'd love to see a bespoke mntnbrd app! would gladly help out with any graphics ;)

Don't want you to feel alarmed Wil, but your avatar appears to be upside down! Good grief, that would be the day when a resident of High Wycombe would misplace his image in a topsy turvy manner!

Best way to find new spots? After you have exhausted all potential an OS map has to offer. Get a dog and walk it everywhere. Your dog will love you, and you will find loads of great places to ride.
