Below are a few FAQ’s we get over email from time to time, if your question is not covered below then drop us an email or write to us using the info on the contact page.

What do I need to ride the park

You will need to be a competent MTB rider capable of tackling trails that are graded in excess of Black (I.e very technically demanding with mandatory drops and gap features). You will also need a full faced helmet and suitable body armour including gloves.

Please note we do not allow people to ride the park without a full faced helmet so make sure you bring one to avoid disappointment.

Can I just turn up and ride or do I have to be a member / prebook?

You can just turn up and ride, day passes cost £7 and do not require full park membership. Please sign on in the Big View Cafe when you arrive

Do you run an uplift?

Unfortunately due to the way the course is set in the woods we are unable to provide an uplift facility

Is my bike suitable?

You will need a sturdy MTB that is built with off road riding in mind and specifically DH. You do not need a dh bike, or even a full sus, but it need to be fit for purpose with good working brakes

Do I have the right skill set to ride the park?

All the tracks are more technically demanding than anything you will find in a typical MTB trail centre. Experience riding technically demanding trails is essential including trails that are steep, have off camber roots and rock gardens and mandatory jump / drop off features.

We strongly advise all park users walk the trail before riding and make sure they have adequate skills and ability to ride safely

Is there a cost to spectate in the park or at race events?

No
