Before I start I must say that this is a reveiw of the Downhill aspect of Penshurst and not the Dirt Jumping (The dirt jumping looked very good, it's just not my thing) I turned up this weekend expecting to do some DH on the short courses which are mentioned on the PORC website. Short is the word ! about 30 foot to be exact, I could find nothing which resembled a downhill course, in fact it was so bad that after 1/2 a hour walking around I decided to go home without even taking the bike out of the car. If as much effort was put into making a couple of DH courses as has been spent on making Dirt jumps the place would be worth regular visits. I was aware of the remains of a couple of DH courses which seemed to have been destroyed by the recent tree felling, perhaps I picked the wrong weekend, I hope so. I have an open mind and I will probably visit again (although it is a long way to drive for nothing) I havn't written PORC off completely as the area has great potential and if the right course was built it could be excellent. If I am wrong and the DH aspect of PORC is just out of order and awaiting a rebuild then I appologise, however a big banner on teh website telling people not to bother would be a good idea. Finally, I am led to beleive that there is to be a DH race at Penshurst this weekend, Perhaps everyone turns up and PORC provides a bus to take them all to Wales. The rating I have given is 1 because 0 was not on the options.

Spend some extra time in the car and go to Wales.

I cammped at Penshurst for 3 days and 2 nights, it was very good, brilliant 4X track, very fast, nice big table tops and doubles. The 3 short Dowhnill courses tracks were amazing, there is a steep technical one, a fast one with a large road gap jump and drop, i didnt do either on my hard tail but sonce then ive done some big drops and high air jumps so i might give it a go. and the final curses rooty and logs to roll over and rocky. Amazing, first DH courses i have ridden, and i did them really well, fast next year i might enter a race.

Porc is the bomb! The sections are fast and deadly and are a must for all the stupid ass adrenalin junkys out there. If dirt jumping is your thing than the quary will talor to your every need, however a full face and body armour is strongly recomended as biting the dirt is common.

Situated in the middle of no where in the heart of the country. Has some great DH courses and jump spots which are worth going to see. Tracks are always changed and updated. Cost 2 for the day.

Very cool Duel course.. BIG jumps ..
The quarry is also excellent - if you're good enough!
It's dangerous though - last week a mate of mine fractured his wrist there, and at the hospital there was another guy from PORC who broke his collar bone!!

This place is huge! The quarry is mental, massive jumps there (fun), loads of downhill/singletrack - love it. Yeah, this is a mountain biking heaven, great atmosphere but a bit depressing when you see how good some of the poeple are. It's ALWAYS changing, every time I go there it's better than before.
I really recommend this place, it rocks.

P.O.R.C is an amazing creation perfectly positioned in the Kent countryside. The trails are utterly amazing and always changing for the better. The people that use P.O.R.C also are great, no one judges on talent and everyone is equal. There is something there for everyone, from new riders to experts. Go along people, you won't regret it.

This place rocks! If you are of the slalom/jump/DH persuasion, you won't find anything better. If you like XC, don't worry, you can ride up the hills that we ride down!
Oh yeah, the 8 ft high, 17 ft gap doubles have yet to be 360'd. Will it be Karl or me going first? Next report via laptop from Kent and Sussex Hospital A+E Dept?!!

"Mr Tickle" is the purpose built duel course, and is one of the best in the country. 30 seconds long, 2 huge tabletops, 2 BIG sets of doubles, 1 set of small doubles, 15 ft high banked corners, 1 Mile wide smile at the bottom.
