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.
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.

Did the Verderers trail for the first time Monday 31st May with my son. Excellent day out. Weren't sure if we were up to it as hadn't done anything like this before but after doing the skills section gave it a go. Few harder uphill sections due to lack of fitness & skipping gears but magic downhill especially the last 1.5kms section. Best "legal high" ever... Great work to all the trail builders & volunteers!

Rode it from the start at the top to the end at the bottom. Not a loop, not a circuit, you just got to keep on going until you reach the end Ben.
