The Freeminer mountain bike trail is graded RED and now has even more extensions to keep you on your toes. With two “killer climbs” plus a steep, twisty, bermed section, rock garden and jumps, the Freeminers now has something for every advanced rider. Designed, built and maintained by volunteers in partnership with the Forestry Commission, this challenging and varied single track can offer something to even the most demanding of riders -from tricky switchback climbs to rooty drops and hairpin bends, it is for experienced riders and off-road quality mountain bikes only. Sections of the Freeminers have deliberately been left as close to natural trail as possible, so in the wetter parts of the year can be pretty muddy and slippery – you have been warned!Show more
