About us.

AN ALL NEW APPROACH TO BIKE RIDING.

Since opening in August 2009, Radical Bikes Community Interest Company has been building and developing a unique Trials, BMX and Dirt Jumping venue.

We have built a strong community of riders, all with a common aim: To have fun on their bikes.

Venue opening times.

Weekends:
10:00 – 18:00

RadFest 2016

Radical Bikes are host to an annual Trials, Dirt and BMX Festival called ‘Radfest’. Riders from the UK and Europe can enjoy 3 days of riding and socializing.

More on Radfest

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.

Radical Bikes

Just to let everyone know, next year we are having a bit of a rest! So there will be no 2017 Radfest. However, if there is enough support, and the community would like a Radfest for 2018, it will return! Our regular riding sessions will continue, resuming in the spring when the ground is dry enough. We intend to continue to develop Radical Bikes as a premium riding venue, as we have been doing since 2009. There will be other events run at the venue for you to enjoy such as Mud, Sweat and Gears, parties and competitions etc. If you would like to run your own event at Radical Bikes, please contact us. In the meantime, if you need any bikes, parts or accessories, we would be very happy to help - Christmas is coming! Just e-mail Mick at: mick@radicalbikes.co.uk or message 07771 637760. Please share this information with all interested parties. Thanks to everyone for your continued support - see you in the spring! ... See MoreSee Less
