- New Leigh Woods Trails Bristol, Officially Open!
Went there this morning, via Ashton court, for a first ride. I liked it. Bit between the main car park and the hole in the wall was a little dull, but the rest was pretty good fun. No sign of any closed bits that I saw, but maybe it was on a bit with a choice of routes?
Also thought the keener section was good, but I was a numpty and came off on the last roller – really pogo’d the fork into the trail.Posted 6 years agoonereallynicespeedMember
singlecrack and i rode the new trail in leigh woods early yesterday.we enjoyed it.as others have said its short but if you do all of ashton court first then over to leigh woods its a few hours worth of riding.you could also do 50 acre wood for a decent mornings worth.i particularly like the name of the trail……YER TIZ…..keeping it nice and local 🙂Posted 6 years agoMr AgreeableSubscriber
Buzz, they looked at making the trail go right down to the bottom of the estate, but it would have had to go through virgin woodland and it really wasn’t a goer. The parking situation is pretty dire at the moment, but it’ll improve when the new visitor centre gets finished early next year.
It’s also very easy to ride to the trails from town. The new Festival Way link from South Bristol is awesome, you can ride from Temple Meads on a route that’s mostly traffic free and have a go on the pump track mid way!Posted 6 years agoMilkieMember
Did AC then Leigh Woods new trails on Sunday, first ride of the year..
Gotta say I was very impressed, I wasn’t expecting it to have as many features. Loved the rock uphill shortcut, and the drops with the slabs.
I have never seen so many different groups of mountain bikers! It was very busy with walkers/dogs and cyclists all getting on lovely! North Road was packed and so was the car park, lovely day, lovely people! 😀
Oh and thumbs up to the guy on a road bike with Jeans & White Shirt.. Doin it in style! 😉Posted 6 years ago
