The Forestry folk at Hamsterley have got together with the local riders of the Hamsterley Mountain Bike Association, and with Descend MTB Promotions to paln and build a totally new “pro” downhill course.
The course will be officially opened on the weekend of 30th June / 1st July when riders are invited to try the course and meet the rangers and builders involved. It will also be an excellent chance to pre-ride the course before it’s used for the NAMBS series on 14th July. After this weekend a small fee will be payable to use the course if you’re not a club member.
The course starts near the Grove car park, two miles along the forest drive from the visitor centre, and the open weekend will run from 10am – 4pm both days. The forest visitor centre is open daily 10am to 4pm (11am – 5pm weekends) and the tea-room operates between 10am and 5pm daily. Further information is available on 01388 488312.
