Temple Newsam is a mountain bike trail built in conjuction with Leeds city council in 2004/2005. The track is perfect for learning on at the same time as been challenging for experienced riders to 'let rip' on! It could be described as a cross breed of mountinbiking disciplines.
It's got a bit of downhill, 4x and dual all thrown into about 40 seconds of track. The whole thing is built on a downhill, theres a 'log-drop' section, some large tabletops, some tight twisty corners, some with small berms and some with big berms and everything is hardpacked like a bmx track. The result is one very fast, grippy, flowing and major fun track! Theres even an easy push back up which you could easily ride back up!
If your travelling north on the m1 you want to leave at junction 46 and take the first left hand turn off up the A63. Go straight on at the next roundabout. At the next round about take the second turning. Follow this road until the next set of lights. Take a left here down a dodgy little street. Straight on at the mini roundabout and follow the narrow road and when you get to the gate the road splits. Go right here and follow the road - watch out for the lethal speed bumps - Take the next right and follow the road. You will eventually come to a big gravel car park on your right. Pull into the car park and you should be able to see the track in the woods.
Please note: Distance is calculated as air distance or "as the crow flies" the most direct route between two points, so the distance by road maybe slightly longer.
