- Dirt Factory, Manchester
Despite following its progress since near the beginning and the fact that it’s a 15 min ride away from me, I’ve never been. Going to rectify this very soon I hope!
In the meantime just wanted to hear something about the place… anyone have reviews, stories, tips etc? I’m not much of a jumper.Posted 2 months agosharkattackMember
Same here. Followed since the beginning and got very excited about it. it’s about a 90 minute drive away. We were supposed to go last week but it was the day Sheffield flooded and it was an adventure just getting home from work.
It would probably be quicker and easier to find an abandoned building and make my own jumps than organise a trip with my mates.
Sorry it’s not what you asked, but I’m also interested in peoples experience. Like can you just roll up and ride or does it get fully booked?Posted 2 months agopoltheballMember
Been once, airbag and pump track were away at an event so reduced entry fee. Couple of big scary jumps with plenty smaller to build up. Well worth a visit, I can’t wait to try the airbag next time out – for now I’m using riding time to get out in the hills before the weather gets even grottier..Posted 2 months agosam_underhillSubscriber
I’ve been once, had both a 150mm trail bike and DJ bike with me. It deffo worked better on the DJ bike, I suspect just due to being able to roll faster and pump better.
The airbag was fun as well. It seemed way more daunting than I thought it would be. I think because you can see the entire height of the jump relative to the floor.
Anyway, next time I’m going anywhere near Manchester I’ll be going again. It’s ace.Posted 2 months ago
