Facilities.

Dirt jumps: Our digger crew maintain our runs of dirt jumps, ranging from tiny rollers to our biggest competition lines

Foam pit: Ideal for practicing new moves with safety in mind.

Mulch jump: Riders progress from the foam pit to our mulch jump – the next step towards safely perfecting their move over the dirt jumps.

Trials sections: A variety of man-made and natural Trials obstacles – constantly being updated and re-arranged to ensure new challenges for riders. The obstacles are progressive from beginner to elite level.

BMX ramps: We have a range of ramps, boxes and rails which are always popular with our BMX riders.

Bike hut and shop: We have a well-stocked bike shop, from inner tubes to complete bikes, and a Bike Hut to provide refreshments.

Hi everyone! Just to keep you updated, the Radical Bikes field is still very wet at the moment. However, we are working hard on our spring preparations. The jumps are being worked on, we have a new roll-in and there will be some new areas to ride when we re-open. In the meantime, we can still help you if you need spares, accessories, clothing or even a whole new bike! Just call Mick on 07771 637760 with your enquiry. As soon as we have a date for re-opening, we will let you all know. Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less
