XC Bike Trail
The Symondsbury XC route is an 8km scenic trail with sea views, singletrack and rocky descents. The XC bike trail is free for all to use! Parking available behind Manor Yard.
Bike Skills Park
The Symondsbury bike skills park uses the Orange dot grading scheme. It is made up of four sections:
Jump Track - The Skills Area jump track has been built to suit bikers searching for an adrenaline fix! With two lines of tempting table-top jumps, this is the place to catch air for the very first time or show off your tricks to the gathered throng.
Wyld Quarry Trail - This trail has been engineered to be as close to natural as possible. This course winds around a disused quarry before you enter the Ammonite Drop - a 10 foot rock shute that launches you into a table-top jump combo. It leads directly into Shutes Copse Single Track, after a rocky braking zone.
Sloe Copse Single Track - A classic old-school hand-built single track that winds downhill through the copse into a series of berms and turns. Constructed by Matt Broom of West Wales Trails, using traditional course building methods. Can be combined with Wylde Quarry Trail to give a double length run brimming with features.
Flow Trail - A mini downhill trail constructed of machine-built berms, rollers and table tops. You have to nail each element cleanly to 'flow' your way to the end. This is a seriously technical ride but SO much fun!
4-cross Track - A four-on-four race track! There a three different routes for you to race to the bottom, over some jaw-dropping jumps, drop offs, tables and much more! There different routes are going to cater for both intermediate and advanced riders. Suspension is HIGHLY recomended! Estimated completion time: End of April 2014!
