Bucknell Downhill track is near Hopton in Shropshire. It is actually just a 5 minutes drive (20-30 min cycle) down the road from Hopton Woods XC and the Downhill MTB trails there. It's common to ride them both in the same trip.
Pearce cycles organise uplift days and events at the course.
Bucknell DH Track
- The Bucknell Downhill track is fast, flowing, short, can be quite technical and is steep in places. It starts with a fast rooty section with a few doubles, a step down, a big tabletop and a huge berm before you get to even more technical rooty track riding including a big gap jump with a short run-out, before a flowy end.
