There is no place like home, or at least this is the vibe that Olly Wilkins is giving off in this video about riding your local patch
DMR rider Olly Wilkins knows his area; ripping corners and throwing some jumps around his ‘local patch’ in the Surrey Hills in the first of the ‘Home to Roost’ series, which will have pro riders showing their local places to ride.
Everybody loves their local patch; you go there every time you need to get out on the bike or when you haven’t got the time to get somewhere a bit further afield. If you give it a break for a while going back is like reuniting with an old friend; you know every root, rock and descent like the back of your hand.
Southern England is home to some great riding, you can check it out yourself with our Surrey Hills GPS route download.
