- UK Bike Park
i’m with smee tbh, with inners being my local dh spot (and dunkeld the just longer the other way)
i didn’t think much of the uk bikepark when there over winter. didn’t seem to be a huge variety in the tracks, all rather short.
theres a few jumps/drops that are bigger. but other than that, its pretty tame. would much rather spend the day on an uplift at inners. or head up the road to dunkeld, for some proper tracks.Posted 8 years ago
Well I know I live in a sh*t place for mountain biking and therefore dont have anything like Glentress or “Inners” (that is not sarcasm by the way), but I am trying to find the best biking I can, within a reasonable driving distance.
And for the record: I have been to Glentress and Innerleithen and loved it, but unfortunately driving for 8.5 hours to get there every weekend is a bit much, don’t ya think?Posted 8 years ago
To be fair I’ve ridden Inners 3 times and also at Ft bill and they are DH courses and they are excellent. If you are looking to session something with bigger gaps then UK bike park has something a bit different that neither of those offer.
I bet Smee didn’t ride any of the big ladder drop / gaps at bike park. If he did I’d like to see the evidence from this self professed riding god!Posted 8 years agoJackass123456789Member
I live about 30 mins from UK Bike Park and TBH given the choice I’d ride Cwmcarn. However down south we don’t have the same terrain as you lucky people at Glentress etc. but the guys at UKBP are trying to make the best of what we have and I think they have considering! It’s unfair to compare it to a location that has been quoted as having some of the best MTBing in the world!!
It is also quicker for me to drive (minus the ferry journey) to the Alps than it is Scotland!!
But going back to UKBP, good short DH tracks and some good jumps and northshore bits – pig of a push back up – if we do ride it normally we stick to the top sections and save our legs. Go on an uplift day and it’s OK.Posted 8 years agoTreezurtMember
Long time no see! You were kind enough to let me ride your Rune (ooh eeerrrr!) around Dorkers.
Head to UK Bike Park for a day, get an up-lift sorted. If you’re up for it, enter a race their, the atmosphere’s pretty relaxed.
Track wise, there’s a few to chose from, and if you like the stuff on Ranmore then you’ll love the stuff at the Bike Park. Although there’s the Freeride area, most of it is DH runs, and they’re plenty technical enough when you notch the speed up.
As for me… I’ve not been on a bike for over three months, still trying to recover from back injury. Rune is on its way and I’m hoping I’ll be out on the trails soon. Hopefully see you out there.
