Bristol – Riding near Almondsbury?
Leon, presuming you have an hour for lunch take a blast down to the ‘tump’ which is where they dumped all the excess soil when they constructed Bradley Stoke North, it’s been turned into a nature reserve with some fire road. a small patch of wood with a bit of singletrack in it and riding up, around and down the tump is fun, although the ride would be lame compared to AS or LW it would be perfect for a lunchtime jaunt.
I used to use it as a test track when I lived in the area.Posted 8 years agoLeonMember
Just wondering if anyone knew of any ok riding around Almondsbury? I work up Aztec west, and even though I’ve looked I’ve not found any decent off road. I’d love to be able to go for a blast at lunchtimes, but I only have an hour, so I can’t get as far as Ashton Court, or even Blaise Castle I doubt (not that I can ever find my way around Blaise anyway…)

Patchway bmx track at the tumps, I live about 35 meters from it, it is huge now as they have had diggers there for the last 2 years! I last about 10 mins before being knackered, it is big enough to throw a mtb round. There may be a lot of kids there at lunch though! and I mean a lotPosted 8 years agoLeonMember
I had a go on the BMX track on my cross bike once. Pretty funny 🙂
All I remember about the tumps is that ew tried playing football there one luchtime, and spent most of the time avoiding dogsh!t. Perhaps it’s ok if you stick to the paths. I’ll have more of an explore.
