A popular trail for the Stravista's as it has a couple of bomb holes, some decent Berms and requires some hard pedalling to get a decent time. Not the most technically challenging but puts a smile on your face (careful of the very bumpy last big berm)

Access Info

Ride up Radnor Road from Peaslake until you get to a little space on the right with two logs on their side. Ride between logs and follow the trail around to the left and enjoy!

At the bottom head right up hill and right again to get back to the start without needing to ride the road again.

       I first rode this trail in the eighties when there was no suspension and we had to cut the undergrowth back at times to keep it open. It’s changed a bit since then. At that time it was also known as “Reservoir Dogs” presumably because it starts at the reservoir. It was also known as “Golden Birdies” but I’ve absolutely no idea why. Maybe there were a lot of pheasant hanging around and getting run over? If anyone is even older than me perhaps they can let us all know.
