It was mentioned two pages ago, but Triscombe is really good. It's got one of the steepest tracks I've ridden in the UK (Brendan's trail) and is always good.
The trails are natural (no bmx style groomed trail centre stuff) and there are plenty of them.
Well worth the trip.

I'm quite new to Bristol and thought I might as well resurrect this old thread. I ride dh and from what i have read the scene in Bristol is pretty dead since still woods is no more?(correct me if I'm wrong) Been to fod a few times and it has loads of great tracks there and I'm up for exploring a lot more places to ride.

I have a car, don't mind driving bout hour an half from Bristol. I can fit one other person in and would be well up for for doing a lift share if anyone is interested. My days off are normally in the week and I was thinking of checking out the dh at triscombe on monday, reply or pm me.
cheers

Triscombe is definitely worth checking out...long walk to the top but some really good and varied trails...was up there yesterday getting bounced around on the little bike - today I hurt. Well worth it!! If it's dry, and you want something a little different, O.P trails are just outside Taunton - smooth fast flowing trails and a decent amount of small/medium jumps (and a much shorter walk to the top).

Check out the Triscombe Riders Collective group and O.P Trails group on Facehook.

I remember an awesome dh race in Chedder, but that was probably 20 years ago now! I looked up this thread as I was intending on trying to hit up some dh stuff when I come back to visit Bristol, but now I realize that living in Southern California I am spoiled rotten for dh stuff. I used to live up by Troopers Hill in St George. Can't you go up there in the middle of the night and build a drop off and a couple of jumps? That would be short but sweet!

There are a few trails up at Belmont, which are basically a replacement for Still.
I rode there on Friday for the first time and it's pretty sick, check out the facebook page:

I'm moving to Bristol in September to study at UWE. I'll be living in halls on Frenchay Campus but I'm bringing my DH bike when I move down. I know one or two local riders but it'd be good to get to know some more locals, anybody want to point me in the direction of a local online community for gravity riders?

Scousestreet I'm living in Bristol at the moment and find there's very little worth riding on a dh bike nearby. You've got belmont but that's more jumps than steep/rough. The off piste dh tracks in leigh woods are great but rideable for about 3 months a year as the clay soil is horrible!

I mainly ride FoD, Rowberrow and Triscombe, all of which are awesome! They all have fb pages to find peeps to ride with but you'll need a car of course to get there.

Do UWE have a mtb group? I know UoB do but i'm not sure about UWE.

I would offer to show you around but I'm off to Cardiff uni in september! Razz

If you don't have a car, hop on the train. Myself or one of the other Taunton locals would be happy to give you a lift and show you around Triscombe.
