Club ride: Ashton Court

New Architrail section at Ashton Court.

This is a chance to try out the recently redeveloped trails at Ashton Court in Bristol. It will also serve as a recce mission in preparation for the Oktoberfest relay race that’s held on the following weekend (event page)

Trail builders Architrail have replaced a load of muddy area with surfaced trail. When we rode it at Bikefest 2011 we found out that it’s all really swoopy. See the Bristol Trails group website for the latest news on trail developments in Bristol.

Ride reports and photos from previous visits: Club ride October 2010, Oktoberfest 2010, Bikefest 2011.

We’re meeting for 10am at the golf club car park right in the middle of the area (red marker in map below).

    I have recently joined MTB Swindon – I am a ‘beginner’ (ish) so Sunday’a ride at Ashton Court looks like it suitable for novices, or fairly novices and a good one for a first ride – is this correct? Approximately what time will the day finish?

    Hi Janet,
    the trail is quite compact so the ride will be ideal for novices, though it’s not being advertised under our “novice friendly” banner.

    So come along, you’ll be welcome.

    Thanks for your reply Tom. I look forward to my first ride with the club.

    HI guys,

    How long are you planning to be running the trails on Saturday? I’m a n00b too, but also a Rugby fan so being there at 10 may be a struggle….

    We’ll be there from 10am until about 3-4pm I expect.
