Bourton Combe - TRAIL

Bourton Combe - Trail, Bristol, United Kingdom

We have a BSX/Duel course, a 2-3km DH technical course with Jumps, Bomb Holes and switch backs beginning with a 40 degree slope and log/trench jumps. There is also a faster DH/XC course that takes about 2mins to complete with a rocky section and an optional drop at the bottom. Both courses end at the BSX/Duel course which will be functional early 2003. There is also over 30 miles of XC on Backwell Hill and the surrounding area.

Basically, the DH/XC route is good for riders that wish to go for a fast cross country ride with little-to-medium challenges, while the DH course is literally littered (!) with jumps, bomb holes, berms, name it, it has it (it even has a particularly nice pit jump). the BSX course is still being built so there's not a lot to say about it, although we are guessing it will be the only *proper* course for about 20 miles around. If you want a good, challenging ride and live within 30 miles of Nailsea I'd definitely recommend it. It is also soon to be the site of a Biking Festival (4x, dual, DH, XC and LIVE MUSIC!).

Well to be honest all of the courses in this 'complex' of routes are very good. Being one of the so called 'maintainance crew' of this course I have ridden it a good number of times. The DH specific course is probably the best although it is quite technical.

Similar Products Used: There's a good few trails maintained all along the same hill (same crew that keeps this one in shape) all really aimed at light DH.
