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!!!

A excellent variety of tracks, with dirt jumps for beginners up to pro's have actually seen Sam Reynolds riding there! Also the downhill tracks offer an amazing variety of skill levels and awesome 4x track there. As well as a really cool atmosphere!

User Review

Good Points
Awesome atmosphere!
Excellent variety of downhill hill tracks as well as dirt jumps.
4x track has awesome tables and nice doubles.
B lines round most jumps.
Not much money
Really cool racing!
Bad Points
Not many just the push up the hill but I think sometimes they have an uplift running and the longest run I think is about 2 minutes long depending on how fats you ride but then this is Kent and there is nothing around that is as good as it!

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

Pretty sick with good trail variety. Great place for sessioning with mates. Lucky to have such a good spot here in the south east.

Trails are great fun. Always full of friendly people.
Bad Points
Trails are pretty much all built straight down the hill so aren't very long - mostly fast and pretty easy. Definitely short but sweet.

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!

A great venue for all abilities featuring DJ,4X and the DH with large jumps, numerous rock gardens and steep sections

User Review

Good Points
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.

If you are seriously into Dirt Jumps and Downhill then PORC has it. The downhills are short but packed full of features from steps to steep rooty sections to gaps and drops of all sizes. Dirt Jumps are not my bag but saw some pretty cool skills. Needs a level of progression added though especially on downhill i.e. some entry level trails as well as a technical grading system as easy to get caught out beyond your ability. I wonder if it has got more technical over the years to satisfy the community that has grown with it. I came on my 4X which is not the best for Downhill but I was hoping to find the 4X track. I hadn't realised the 4X had been shut down which is such a shame.

User Review

Good Points
-Diversity from Downhill, Dirt Jumps and XC
-Really friendly and welcoming community
Bad Points
-I don't really find it progressive. Be it the jumps or the downhill runs there is no real entry level (or mid level) tracks. It all feels 3 dots orange or black to double black diamond. If you were a very confident intermediate rider or an expert rider you could easily develop pro skills here but as beginner / moderate level rider I think you would be put off. Hence maybe counter intuitive too many but I gave it a low skills score. I have not ridden the XC as yet.
- Easy to get lost on the lines and end up facing a huge technical feature un-expectantly.
- Runs aren't marked with ability. Needs an orange dot system.
