I live 5mins away from pines so go every weekend. However I consider it a training centre to build stamina and test new equipment.
They've made all trails the same base material as green route so that shows how easy they've made it. I prefer before they over maintained it the days of ruts, exposed tree roots and ending the day head to toe in mud.

Good Points
Well maintened tracks however ... to be continued

Cafe and pines cycle centre is always helpful and can repair your bike there and then.
Bad Points
Trails are too easy - maintained too well (limestone paths)

Expensive car parking (I have a discovery pass but £6 all day for non pass users is expensive)

i went and had a ride here while visiting the inlaws, I had read that it was not to technical or challenging, but it is great fun, and you get out of it what you put in.

I had a great time riding two loops of the Kitchener trail, once you are out out the car park area it did not feel busy at all and was good fun riding in the woods.

Bad Points
None really, good fun place with good facilities.

Thought it would be busier especially with Centreparcs next door (apparently they don't advertise it - people off site don't spend money, their main aim), but it was very quite mid week even though it was mid summer.
Very easy for a red course, nothing at all technical, but as there's little in the way of hills, its constant pedalling. Also some sections are very muddy, so bad I had to get off and push, even though slope was non existent.
The bike park has some good stuff, though as the tracks criss cross each other, it could be dangerous when crowded.
I wouldn't drive far to come here but if your in the area anyway (esp staying at Centreparcs) , its worth looking at.

I usually visit sherwood once or twice a year at least even though it's quite a drive as something always takes you back! The new development to the freeride zone has improved it a lot. It has a nice flowy bermy runs with a few rock drops along the way. There are a few different lines.
The jump park is my favourite to both look at and ride. It has jumps of all sizes with the first actually being a really fun roller line that is well worth a go if you start right at the top at the entrance.
The trail is quite flat but still a lot of fun. It is definitely on the easy side of red though.

Good for winter riding when the local mud and clay are magnetised to your rubber
Bad Points
Trails can be poorly maintained but you can always go off piste onto other singletrack, just follow your nose

Very Muddy, prepare to change your clothes and carry some spare brake pads :-)

User Review

Good Points
Trail seemed very flat, no boardwalks and 3 berms, not really a red route in comparison to others that I have visited, don't really to test your skills and seems like a slush pit, to me not worthy of a 100 mile round trip!, on the plus there is an orange graded skills section and have to say, this is slightly EPIC, omg you can have some fun on this, you can even get massive air!!!! unless your my friend who brakes his hand on the baby jumps, but that is deffo worth a visit. also the facilities are excellent!
Bad Points
mud, mud and even more mud lol not testing enough sorry, other than that very nice!

As mentioned fun if you mix it up with the Downhill and Bike park as well as the XC but for XC on it's own is great mainly for beginners and novices.
