hi mate well there on the cycle track so you wont be able to see it on google maps, i might be able to give you directions if you let me know whereabouts in bristol your coming from or what bits of the cycle path you know of as for the jumps there big theres smaller ones at around 4-5 ft high and the 5-6 wide ish and the bigger ones are up and around the 10 ft in distance and have the hight to match mark but its hard to say as ive never ridden the big ones will just say they should offer you plenty of fun and its the best quality jump spot i know of in bristol i havent been there in ages but a freind has told me that there all in good nic.

yeh mate i know yate, well if you get to bristols ring road from your house you should end up at the roudabout by the beefeater or by the shell garage depending on what way you come. you can jump on the cycle track there but make sure you get onto the right hand side of the ring road wen u get to a bridge or summit and follow the cycle track left if yates behind you. get over to emersons green retail park by followin the cycle track then follow the cycle track towards keynham i think theres a few ways of doing that but askin ppl will et u heading in the right direction theyll no where to go. then jst follow it for about 10 minutes following the cyclepah keeping the ring road on your left then youll get to archway over the path that looks like bent pencils just on from there keep an eye out for any gaps or dirt tracks through the hedgerow and bushes cuz u cant see the jumps from the path and thats it lol. if you end up at a load of old railway platforms youve gone to far and dont end up crossing over the ring road on bridges after youve ridden through emersons green stay on the track and follow the ring road right towards keynsham there should be sign posts. sorry the directions are naff mate ill see if i can find a map for you.
cheers
