Good Points
Awesome lines to suit any level of rider,
An amazing place to improve your riding skills,
Such a sick riding community,
The yearly race series,

The first time I went riding down PORC I was on a mighty rattly halfords bike and was amazed at the jumps people were doing and made me instantly want to get into DH, with not many places around that offer such awesome trails PORC is the place to be!
Bad Points
only bad thing I can think of is that it isn't trail of the year yet!

Every weekend my self,hubby and my 12 year old go here......I go for the tea,bacon sarnies and the chat....hubby and boy for the riding and or racing.
Since mike Joseph has attacked the race lines....with new ones popping up all the time...porc is the place to be. He is progressing the trails at a rate where his family never see him!!! There is something for everyone,beginner through to sponsored rider.even I can ride the first straight!!!

Love this place! The main man there, Mike Joseph is turning this place around. The DH runs are fast, gnarly and tech but still safe. Something for every riding ability.

3mile cycle from the nearest train station. The place is that good the only thing I can fault is the station to track ride!

User Review

Huge variety of trails for different abilities. The new freeride lines are fantastic fun and well built and the race series is fantastically organised with brilliant new tracks for each round. All the lines are not taped, and interweave so you can ride a different line every time.
Bad Points
Runs are only 1-1.5 minutes long.
Old trails are often poorly maintained.

Being a beginner my favourite place so far =)

User Review

I've only started riding and loving it! Already practising on the smallest of lines in the DJ quarry and getting to know the DH tracks, so many of them and different options to connect them it's unbelievable !!!
I like the fact I can wash my bike free of charge after riding! First place like that , although haven't been riding for too long so there might be more I'm not aware of. Usually ride in Perry Woods, did visit Aston Hill and Woburn and have to say PORC is my favourite.
Great place to ride and people!
Bad Points
Not the easiest way to get there if not driving but guess there's no easy way to places like that.

I will post a video to show the quality of PORC Bike park. Definately a place that should be in contentions of being the producers of the best trails in the UK.

I have grown up to be close with the mountain biking community around PORC. Over the past few years I haven't had any issues with anything, the trails are phenomenal, the service is fantastic and the races the Mike Joseph hosts, I feel are some of the best in to country. It has developed into a place for all variations of riding, from cyclocross to downhill mountain biking, 4x and dirt jumping. Everything is continuously being developed to keep the trails maintained and new features to be installed. My media has greatly benefited from this venue, as it's where I film and ride the most, purely because it is such a fun place to ride, and everyone is extremely helpful and friendly.
Bad Points
Some of the old trails are overgrown however these were never ridden much anyway, compared to the more recent, flowy freeridey trails.

Can't speak high enough about this venue. If it was closer to me I would ride it so much more but I still travel the distance as I leave with a grin and a new found skill every time.

What can I say. Great place great people and a great vibe. Did a race here a few months back and was glad I did. Hit stuff I wouldn't have otherwise and found out it was so well built I need not have worried.has gaps and tables of all sizes and they are made to help develop your ability.sweet place to ride
Bad Points
No bike shop near by....
