User Review

Good Points
Over the two sites there’s everything you need to develop your skills. Everyone you meet are more than happy to help you out if your struggling with something. Really friendly place to ride and the winter series is such a fun event. An always the chance a seeing a deer. With the digging that’s going on over the two sites next season should be amazing.
Bad Points
Bins could do with being emptied a bit more that’s about it.

I don't like committes..

User Review

Good Points
As the star ratings describe, superb venue for every level of rider. Chaz the guy you always see there doing stuff great bloke a serious credit to the venue. There are a couple of others but I don't know them too well.

Push up is no trouble if needed, tracks are brilliant awesome in the really wet weather too.. A real all weather site.. Can't reccomended it enough.. I would happily pay double for membership..
Bad Points
Need all the committee members to attend the site when members are riding, get feedback face to face rather than Fb page.. Only ever see Chaz, Andy down there.
You say anything on the Fb page it gets blown out of context and achieves nothing..

Love this place!

User Review

This place is just Lovely.
It never feels too busy except on a sell out race day!
It's a lovely mix of natural and sculpted trails maximising the terrain. I'm not a good rider but still have great fun on the easier 2 trails and would be happy to spend all day there.Its a great place to progress. I've never felt out of place there despite my riding being on the less rad end of spectrum. Everyone is always friendly.Has an uplift!
Bad Points
Basic facilities but has a toilet.
What more could you want.

A great place to ride. Whether starting out, developing your skills or just to shred and get loose!

User Review

Between the two sites Tavi and gawton have it all, fast and flowy to steep and technical as well as jumps and the pump track. To think it's all run by volunteers for only £40 a year is insane. The place is a must visit for all downhill mountain bikers. Woodlands is better suited if you are just starting, but still has so much variety in tracks that even the pros could have fun here. Gawtons HSD is its easiest track, but don't be fooled by it's red rating, I'm yet to find a red track like it. Overall an awesome place. Whether starting out, developing your skills or just to shred and get loose!

Love it - going to make even more use of it this year.

User Review

Good Points
Awesome variety of tracks. I'm glad all abilities are made so welcome since I'm an oldie just starting out really but I get huge smiles out of doing those tracks I can on my hardtail - this year hopefully sees me finally getting my DH bike sorted and I will definitely be taking advantage of some of the booked training sessions put on at the tracks to be able to then take on the more technical stuff that I can't do just yet. A fantastic day out whether you are riding it or coming along for the occasional race events that attract some real talent. Absolutely brilliant to see the amount of mixing that goes on at the race events and normal day rides - all ages from young to 'vintage' and male and female. Hats off & real big thanks to the guys who give up their time to keep the tracks in good nick with a continuation of new tracks coming through (me and my kids love the new pump track!). Definitely recommend.
Bad Points
None that I can think of really although it ticks me off that there are a few plonkers who need to take their rubbish home instead of leaving it to the locals to do. HSD track ok for confidant starters but I need to work out if there is something more intermediate at Gawton or to stick with Tavi Woodlands where there is probably a more even mix. Last, the price is so ridiculously good, can there really still be any cheetin tight-wads who aren't paying properly for entrance ?

One of my all time favourite riding spots...

User Review

Good Points
If you love tech this place is it. Some proper steep technical trails but also some fast flowy fun thrown in. Push up is possible at Gawton but if you looking for loads of fun, quick rotations and easy push up Tavi woods is a blast.
Bad Points
Not ideal for beginners, although Tavi woods is better on that front.

Get on yer bike n ride.......

User Review

Good Points
Perfect for beginner to advanced riders, always getting developed and maintained. Great atmosphere. Push up isn't too bad if you are not using uplift, even better if you are in touch with your feminine side and have an electric up hill bike.. Wet weather doesn't affect the trails... Cafe pretty good unless real busy.... So bring pack up just in case. Can't rate this place high enough got me buzzing and back into mtb after 9 years away due to injury. Chaz and his team are a credit to the sport..
Bad Points
Road into the carpark is in bad need of repair, but the responsibility of local highways not the club. Carpark could do with making bigger but I bet Chaz is already onto it.. James on the up lift run by fly-up downhill needs to take shorter lunch breaks.. He a lazy shite.. Come on James we are waiting..... ?

Final bad point is I'm too unskilled to ride the exiting tracks like the Rattler.. My bad..

Gawton gravity hub is an amazing place to ride and for just £40 a year its well worth it with such a variety of tracks from a very fast flowing hsd and a fast and fun proper job which is great for beginners/amateurs and if u wanna step up the game a bit you can take on supertavi and Egypt which consists of rocks,roots,tight berms and drops all over a very steep gradient which can be quite hairy (not for the faint hearted) you can also ride the rattler a selection of tables and jumps and a road gap into a lovely fast berm which will have you smiling all the way to the bottom! Last but not least the all new track megatavi!!! I can't comment on this as I haven't ridden it yet but all I can say is I've heard it is Steep!!!!!!
Get yourselfs down to gawton guys and enjoy!
