OK, how does Lee Quarry hope to compete in the category of Best Trail Center given your criteria :-
Best UK Trail Centre
Which trail center has given you the best blend of fantastic riding, facilities and overall enjoyment in the past year?
Given that description, I would have thought that you are precluding some of the best man made stuff around. The award will no doubt go to Glentress again, not because of just the trails, but it has a cafe, bike shop, showers etc etc.
All I was suggesting was maybe a category of best man made trail (not center) which would open things up for the like of Gisburn, Penmachno, Lee Qaurry etc etc...
I dont buy the line that "this maybe the incentive they need to build better facilities". Personally, I would much rather see the money spent on more trails rather that a posh cafe serving overpriced coffee.
Anyway, thats my 2 cents... I;m sure everyone will rightly have their own opinion.
