One Giant Leap

Nestling on a farm in North Wales is a downhill venue that is host to a round of the British Downhill Series and, in my opinion, one of the best downhill places you’ll find in the UK. Getting there? You’ve pretty much got to drive there. One Giant Leap is on Tan Y Graig farm in…

Little Sutton Pump Track

Getting there? Nearest postcode is CH66 3QB. The pump track is situated at the end of Valley Drive where it meets Parklands (road). It shows up on Google Earth but not on Google Street View. What’s there? A decent length, all-weather (tarmac) pump track with decent sized features.  The track was built by Clark and…

Moel-y-Ci

Where is it? Nearest postcode is LL57 4EQ.   When you get there keep going along the track until you come to the entrance on your left (shown in the picture on the right). Park up here (responsibly as there’s not much space) then head up the track on your bike. You’re a little way…

Foel Gasnach (FDHR Club)

Hiding away in North Wales, Foel Gasnach is a seriously good downhill venue for all levels of rider including the elite.  You have to be a member of the FDHR club to ride but it’s only £10 for the year and worth every penny <Take me to the membership page>. Getting there? This place isn’t…

Riverview Road – Local build

Kop Hill – Local build

A trip to the in-laws often involves a trip to Aston Hill (just 30 minutes down the road) but when I know we’ve got a busy weekend in store I opt for a lesser known local spot that I stumbled across a few months ago. Getting there? You’ll find it by heading out of Princes…

Delamere Forest

It’s been about two years since I was last at Delamere Forest but went to get some cornering practice in while my broken ribs are healing. I went expecting to find the usual, long term neglected trails but got a small bonus surprise. Getting there For getting there you’ve got options.  First up you can…

Coed Mor

I was on holiday in Anglesey earlier this year & looking for places to ride.  One place that came up in the Google searches was Coed Mor and it was just 10 minutes down the road from where we were staying. Getting there: First thing to say about this place is it’s difficult to find…

Penmachno

It was a bit misty, a bit damp and a bit cool at Penmachno yesterday but it all combined to make some surprisingly nice riding conditions.  It’s a love hate relationship I have with this place because, for me, there’s a bit too much pedalling & I get particularly frustrated at the amount of pedalling…
