Budget MTB Decathlon

For pootling around and easy tracks the cheaper one is 100% suitable. However, I would choose a hybrid for this sort of riding. Suspension, fat knobbly tyres etc are not needed at all. Decathlon has plenty of similarly priced hybrids

No, not one of those things with sus forks! :eek: Just extra stuff to wear out and need maintenance. Basic version Riverside with rigid forks will do the job.
For that matter, if you're just riding easy gravel and dirt tracks and just want MTB fat tyres for comfort, you could get away with a £100 Challenge Conquer 26" bike from Argos. OK, they are only really glorified gravel cruisers because they have limited range gears, but there' plenty of riders pootling around on them.

Looks perfectly adequate, a quick glance at the welds would be the decider for me.
