Good Points
Something for all abilites: Pump track can be ridden on strider bikes, back straight is challenging for even highly experienced riders and there are plenty of options allowing for progression. The last straight is really fun and pumpy which is great for less experienced riders. It has a very friendly, inclusive local scene from numerous disciplines and the club will be running gate sessions this summer!

Recently been completely resurfaced so is going to awesome this summer once it has bedded in. If you are coming any distance, you can get in touch with the track custodians via the Bolehills FB page to ensure that the track conditions are suitable for riding.

Regarding facilites, despite the track having none, there are lots of local shops, takeaways and pubs within walking distance of the track. It is also close to the city centre, the universities and the Peak.

Good Points
Layout is a classic. Who can argue with the backstraight - most fun set of jumps at a BMX track in the UK. Last straight is easy and fun for kids, first straight is like a set of trails.SICK pumptrack.

In the process of getting a huge revamp. Watch this space
Bad Points
Rough and ready. Don't expect finely trimmed grass verges and butter smooth surfacing (yet!). The spirit of bolehills is in the vibes
