A loop taking in the best of Bristol singletrack taking in the first half of Leigh Woods, down to Picnic Bench, can spend some time sessioning the trails here, before heading on to blue bell and garlic run, take the road route off to Abbots Poole for a short section of trail into the natural and challenging 50 acre wood, take the left fork at the end to sample the very short but steep downhill options, before heading off towards Belmont via wraxhall singletrack. Take the XC route or enjoy some of Bristols more gravity focused trails, head back along the road towards Ashton court for the quarry trail and the red graded supernova if you fancy before finishing off with the Beggars Bush singletrack.
