Summary:
A nice trail

Review:
These trails are never going to set the world on fire, but they are lots of fun and perfect for when you don't want to travel too far but still want a fun fix.

The dirt jumps are lots of fun as well as the rock gardens. I really love the wooden drop offs and north shore as well.

Will return to this place again as it was unexpectedly fun.

Summary:
Super fun and suitable for any rider

Review:
I have ridden the croft trail a few times now and as a beginner to intermediate rider then I would suggest that if you are looking to improve this is the place for you.

It's tight twisty and technical in parts and the rock gardens and features are well placed but every single one has an easy ride around (so if you think you've bitten off more than you can chew you can skip it).

The first red loop is a bit feature low (at the time of writing) I think it had loads of wooden sections that have been pulled down but it's still worth adding in.

The second red section is great and there are a few routes with a downhill bit or a big jump with a cracking berm at the bottom or a well made rock garden which is fun.

The last red section is great as it flows really well and again has some features that you can hit or avoid.

The last section is really tight and twist and just before the big berm at the end there are two trees quite close to each other. If you have big bars (like i do) don't try and squeeze through as it will not end well.

So in summary for a compact site the guys at MB Swindon have built a great feature packed trail with a good mix of terrain. If you are a beginner it is easy and fun to ride and if you are a bit more experience simply try and ride it fast, it becomes a whole new challenge.

Summary:
Good use of the land by MB Swindon

Review:
Swindon isn't known for it's mountains so don't expect long, flowing descents. What you can expect though is about 3 miles of feature packed tight and twisty singletrack. The guys from MB Swindon have done a brilliant job on the land offered them and have made good use of the topography. Expect to see all types of rider here from family groups to the head down arse up brigade

Summary:
Something for everyone and clever with the space

Review:
I live locally and I love going to Croft for a slow ride with the kids or an all out workout bit of fun. It's been built with all mtb levels in mind. Whether you are a novice, intermediate or expert rider you will love the little berms, rollable jumps, switch backs, north shaw and lots of technical rocky sections. It's awesome for the kids to, mine have learnt so much from riding the Croft. The only negative I can think of is the lack of descents/climbs but the guys at MB Swindon have done so well with the space available
