Sweet jumps

It's got loads of different jump lines to please every skill level.. progressively getting harder as you go up the hill with a duel race track with gate along the other side.. pump tracks duels and jumps all develop skill so quickly and are great fun, drys out quick after rain and is always a great atmosphere there.. love it, and wish I could spend more time there really :)

Good points:

Well maintained Races in summer on duel line Friendly Mixed skill levels all welcome Pro line jumps are well made and super fun ??

Bad points:

only small issue is no toilet or cafe/shop near by so bring food with you! (No bins so take your rubbish home!!)

Cracking set of skill-development trails

Not a traditional trail centre but a set of pump and jump circuits dotted up one side with a dual slalom trail with jumps running all the way down the other. 

I have been bringing my kids along over the summer and already my 5 year-old has progressed to the red lines, rolling the tabletops and cruising around the berms. Some way off the gap jumps at the moment so I hope the centre continues to receive as much support as it can for years to come.

Go check it out on Google maps, the tracks are clearly visible from satellite view.

Good points:

A great set of trails for all abilities ranging from a very gentle pump track that my 5yo cut her teeth on, through the red lines with table-tops and gaps and then on to the pro-lines. The trails are free to all and well maintained. 
Occasional fun events such as the recent dual-slalom which was a fundraiser to help with the upkeep of the centre.

Bad points:

As the site is unsupervised and has no litter bins, it suffers a lot from littering and relies on the good folk to bag up and leave for collection.
The trails also suffer from occasional mis-use where jumps have been rolled over in the wet by kids rather than being left alone for a drier day, resulting in the need for reshaping.
