Western Park in Leicester has a bit of everything: BMX circuit, a large range of table tops lines, berms, drops, and a pump track. 

Not really cross country although you will be able to ride some of the lines and the pump track. A good place to practice jumping and hang out.

Trails built by volunteers on Council land, legal and not demolished since 2001.

Directions

  • Western Park Hinckley Road, Leicester. Off the A47 Hinckley Road, next to the main entrance to Western Park. From the Eco House Carpark head into the park past the blue sign board, the trails are up the hill on the left. The nearest side road is Western Park Road. Grid Ref 52.633467, -1.176095

Massive respect to the trail builders past and present

User Review

Good Points
Awesome trails designed built and maintained by bikers for bikers over the last 17 years. Fantastic range of lines packed into a small corner of the largest park in Leicester. Very friendly locals, suitable for a wide range of bikes and skill levels. Free parking, free entry, opportunities to get involved in trail building. Annual Jam in July is always a great event.
Bad Points
Can be very claggy after heavy rain.
