- Wind hill mountain bike park?
Windhill is worth a day’s visit if you go for a nice lunch in a nearby pub too.
There’s a fair few trails and downhill tracks on the Mendip hills between Burrington Combe and Cheddar Gorge which is close to Bristol, and free. Local shop Badass Bikes in Burrington may be able to help with more detailed directions.Posted 8 months ago
Cheers Andy – a mate has talked about the burrington combe ride. Not too far away but must admit as I’m limited on time to bike I like going to places where I don’t need to navigate. Call me lazy but bike centres really work well for me on that basis.
Not adverse to paying £7 if it’s worth it – if I go somewhere in wales it automatically costs £7 anyway for the bridge.Posted 8 months agokongman28Subscriber
Windhill is loads of fun. It’s a short 5 minute ish push up (or pedal if your fit) then a start ramp with choice of jumpy or techy trails. They’re shorter than most but it means you get loads of laps and get to learn lines etc. The actual build quality of the trails is amazing and I think £7 is a bargain for the effort they’ve put in. There are loads of videos online that show the runs well.Posted 8 months ago
A guided tour of Burlington sounds good Anthony! STW Bristol ride there one Wednesday evening?
Not tried tidworth but think that’s further away than windhill?
Flyup is only about an hour or so away and for £7 get have loads of stuff to do – just trying to balance up whether wind hill is comparable or if smaller / bigger.Posted 8 months agowattsymtbMember
I really enjoyed it for an afternoon. More suited to people who like to get airborne.
One thing you should bear in mind is that you have to register as a member with B1kepark before you go. It’s free, but if you haven’t registered your details and printed a thing, you won’t be able to ride. HTHPosted 8 months ago
