I would deffently come up, especialy if it will be anything like those pictures, that would be awesome.

Deffinatly worth the 6 hours in the car :P

There would have to be camping to make it worth while for the people who have to travel because

they would spend most of the day traveling and wont be able to get alot of riding done.

Go for it ali!!

Cant wait!

Alex!

Nice lot of 'crete, toilets and some shelter, with the possibility of free/cheap parking and/or camping would be awesome!

One thing though - Could you make it indoor, and in Bristol please? :P

that sounds amazing

i would find some way of getting there, but as you guys said would be at least a weekend thing(camping).

Plus with street and natural no ones too complain :D

If someone made a great all disipline place like that, i would happily travel to ride (and im on the south coast) but would want to stay for at least one night. Even if payment was needed, like someone else mentioned P.O.R.C. with a campsite, minimal facilites, and someone there most of the time. pay by day or for locals a good deal on yearly membership. Just an idea to pay if you put facilities there really.

Send them the pic of that trials park you posted and i think theyl get the idea of the kind of obstacles they will need to bring in.

That'd be great to get a place like this!! As mentioned it would need camping/b&b facilities nearby to appeal to more people. I hope all the planning goes well :)

theres going to be a 30 mile xc loop, plenty of xc riders will drive for that so I should think there will be camping and stuff, I cant promise that its in the same quarry though....I'll ask about it next time I speak with them, I agree that it would be dead handy to have.

Heard you saying about it in burnley, and lee mill quarry sounds a very good venue if it does go a head, but as you will no its very slippy in wet so would be good if could get some decent grippy rocks put in, and dont make it all gay natural lol Would be amazing if you could get it something like spain with a mixture of street and natural. I would fully suport it in anyway possible.

I dont no if anyones asked but are they making it open to public so you can just walk up and ride our are they going to charge????????

Sounds awesome. I've considered going to fort bill before for DH, so dont see whay this wouldnt be worth the journey!

With parking and stuff you could charge for it fine as long as it wasnt alot. Like, 1 or 2 quid a day? Defianatly sounds worth the trip anyway, especaily if theres gunna be a 4X track there aswell, and some nice singletrack and stuff.

I'd definatlely go, and if you ask me camping is a MUST, most riders will go there for a 3 - day weekend if you ask me. And paying for parking is also a MUST otherwise you'll get people that will park there and piss off somewhere else without the intention to even use the trials park. Anyway, yeeaaa i'd get my ass up there for sure!

But does that mean it's somewhere a lot of non-riders (esp. chavs!) will go to 'hang out' (read. smoke, drink, trash and be antisocial, or old people being old maybe) or is it a bit more out of the way and not the kind of place to expect people to be using as a social area?

only ever seen 2 people shooting rabbits and a couple of dog walkers, its on the moors with no lights or anything, its not shomwhere chavs go.

Its going to be unmanned, so paying for stuff like parking might be difficult, I'll ask about it though.

ill support this even if it had been down in the south coast. we have to all help each other. and if its huge as been described the possibilities are endless.....well worth it.

bring it ON
