Mountain biking on the Verderers’ Trail

The highly rated Verderers’ trail, designed and built by Rowan Sorrell's 'Back on Track' team, is an exciting and adventurous trail for both intermediate and experienced cyclists on mountain bikes.

You’ll encounter a combination of different surfaces, narrow sections, moderate climbs, humps, flowing berms and undulating whoops. There are two shortcuts back to the cycle centre if you decide the trail is not suitable for you.

Take on the ‘Iron Chicken and ‘Blue String Pudding’ before the final descent of the trail which has received huge plaudits since its completion in the summer 2011. The trail overall gives a massive feeling of fun and riders complete the final downhill section with a huge grin. Feedback has been unanimously positive with rave reviews from both hardcore cyclists and those that have not ridden a bike for many years.

The trail is currently having maintenance work carried out on it.  Please observe the signage and follow the diversion which will be in place until 7th February.

The Verderers’ trail is a 1 South West project. They have produced a map of the trail.

Before cycling the trail, why not try out the skills loop near the trail start? This can help you get a feel for your bike and develop your off-road technique.
