An exciting new bike skills park opening in the heart of Edinburgh in Autumn 2016! The Skelf Bike Park will be built in the Braidwoods between Edinburgh’s Old Town & Holyrood Park, an area of self-seeded woodland grown up on ground left vacant following comprehensive demolition of tenements in the area in the 1960s.

What's The Plan

Mountain Bike Trails

Blue Trail: This 800m long, blue graded trail will run the length of the woods weaving it’s way between the trees, and is mainly intended for beginners/younger kids/cycle proficiency classes.

Red Features: Along the blue trail, there will be several strictly optional (and clearly sign posted) and more challenging red graded technical features (like table-tops, drop-off and rock gardens) that will suit slightly more advanced-level riders.

The Pump Track:

A pump track is a small but intense circuit of rolling bumps, table-top jumps, and bermed corners designed to be ridden continuously without pedalling by using weight shifts (pumping) and gravity. Pump tracks are great for developing skills and improving your technique whether you’re a beginner or an expert.
