There's supposedly a DH track up at longridge fell, I've not found it yet though. I'm quite new to the area too, if you ever want someone to ride with let us know.

Been up a few times and ridden round looking for quite a while but to no avail, some of the normal trails are ok anyway, better than riding round Preston anyway!

I know it's old post but I'm new in this.
I live in Preston and I've found short track (a lot of fun on it)
It's in brockholes wood.
Pm me if interested in riding together

Hi mate how long is the track and is there any jumps on it?

It's short... Up to 500m, there are 2/3 small jumps

Hey guys, just digging up this thread to see if there's anyone still riding Dh/FR in the area? Moved to Preston a while back but getting the bike back out there soon!

I live just outside Blackpool when I'm not at uni in Sheffield and haven't found or heard about anything remotely like a DH track anywhere near Frown

From what I've heard the nearest place with a DH track is Gisburn Forest which is about an hour away from Preston, but I've not been there since I was 13. I also used to know a guy from Liverpool that used to ride at lee quarry which I think is about an hour away too. It's kind of annoying considering in Sheffield there is a trail a 10 minute ride away and the place that Steve Peat learned to ride at is just down the road :/

Aye, we've both found ourselves in similar situations by the sounds of it!! I've been looking at this place Farmer Johns that is south of Manchester (I think) looks awesome fun but I'm sadly without my own transport so really need the benefit of locals who are cool with someone to tag along with! This awesome weather and no prospect of riding soon kills lol!
