Fun in the city that scratches that itch (a little)

The MTB routes are plentiful and developing. you have to remember that this is an urban centre, much like redbridge however there are some stark differences. LVVP offers a wide range of runs. from beginner friendly twisty, bermy trails, to small rock gardens, drops and technical decents. The red runs hold a fair challenge and the blacks vary from short technical A lines to quite technical drops and short decents. WHat makes it more challenging is the abundance of rocks (mostly rubble and hardcore) that could made a fall painful.

As a skills development centre close to the city it is good, but it is not an expansive trail experience to rival Swinley or Bedgebury, however it is  step us from other "urban" facilities in the area. 

Good points:

Fast flowing trails
Good selection of technical features
Challenging in places
Excellent facilities 

Bad points:

feels very out of place in the urban vista
feels very industrial, lots of hardcore 
mostly rock features, no roots or mud. 

Would you recommend?
