We have secured the use of a site in Durham city to turn into a Mountain Bike Skills park.
The site is on Bent House Lane, a single track lane that runs off Dragon Lane in Gilesgate and leads to Old Durham Gardens

Its not a very big site but will hopefully be big enough to create a trail that will allow riders to develop their skills without having to leave the city.
The ultimate plan is to build a trail(s) with plenty of features in it such as berms and jumps. However that will follow a tidying up process with the pressing matter being clearing the weeds/nettles and securing the site.
We will need to figure out loads of things but its a start.
Any help appreciated!
Stay tuned for more.
