Good Points
Very well set out best utilising a quite small space, with plenty of variety. My kids love it and there is a nice little drop off and jump line now which is really good for skill development
Bad Points
The table top jump line does not have a very good run up line making it quite difficult to pick up speed to clear all 3

Very well desiged pump tracks that work well. Ive ridden pump tracks before that just dont work. The singletraction folk seem to have a knack of building great fun and well flowing tracks. Plenty of scope to help beginners and more advanced riders learn and develop skills to take out to bigger trails. Generally an awesome little place for a shred.
Bad Points
Taken from above "Generally an awesome litlle place to shred" yep its fairly small but it packs at lot in to the space available to them but its not a days worth of riding unless you really love pump tracks. The sewage farm next door pongs a bit but its not really noticeable while your on the move.

Good Points
Great variety of tracks for the family and upwards good cycle access from York with lots near the sit i.e. Boulder, play area, toilets, local shop's. I've taken a birthday party for young kid's there and we had a picnic it was Great. Yes the hard core mountain bike rider's may not find the challenge but as a local assets i think its great and the volunteers deserve congratulations & praise.
Bad Points
Coffee shop would be lovely ;-)

Good Points
Situated on the edge of York at the Rawcliffe Bar Park and Ride site, with free parking this is a perfect place to go and spend an hour.
There are now 2 pump tracks to develop skills, one of which is the largest I've ever seen.
In addition to the pump tracks, there is a small jump line (3 tables) and some short techy trails.
Bad Points
The site is still being worked on regularly by a small team of volunteers, so the full potential of the site has not yet been completed

Good Points
There are no good points regarding the current Rawcliffe pumptrack other than to confirm that work is well under way for the revised track being built by SingletrAction and local volunteers.

Bad Points
The track is very poor in layout, length and technical aspect and has fallen very much into disrepair. There are no facilities at site other than the use of the free to park "Park & Ride" car park next to the track. The new track really should be a massive improvement.
