Bike parks are absolutely wonderful for introducing newcomers to the sport and providing new thrills to oldies like us. It seems that Britain has welcomed them with open arms in the past few years and they’ve started to crop up at an alarming rate.

The best news of all is that it has recently received planning permission for an additional 23 trails (more than doubling it’s current number) so you can expect even more great riding to be trickled out over the next few years.
A bit like a hipster, Descend Hamsterly was a bike park “before it was cool”. Currently in its fifteenth year, the park offers five trails at the top that split into eight at the bottom – there’s also a 4X track to play about on if you fancy.
Despite its age, DH1 probably remains the pick of the tracks starting fast and flowy before shooting into tight, steep and techy woods.
