The Lordship Loop mountain bike and BMX track is in Lordship Recreation Grounds in Tottenham, London. It is designed for both BMX and mountain bike frames and wheels. The pump track style makes it progressive so beginners, intermediate and advanced riders can move their skills forward as they learn to pump, manual and jump.
It is created within open areas of woodland giving an out of London feel yet within an urban setting making it accessible to London riders.
- The Lordship Loop design consists of a single-track experience made up of rollers, berms, roller doubles and step-up jumps and is rollable by all abilities but with more challenging jumps for experienced riders. It is know as a 'pump track' style trail that is very skills and feature intensive. It covers a looped distance of 391 metres made from re-used earth bunds from recycled earth and surfaced with aggregates to provide a fun year round riding facility.
- Commissioned by Haringey council the Lordship Loop construction was led by Rowan Sorrell a Welsh Downhill Mountain Biking Champion and his Back on Track team who have a wealth of experience in designing and building bike tracks. The design has had significant input from Rowan himself as well as the different local community groups including Lordship Recs local off road cycling club The Tottenham Bike Club.
