A small unofficial dirt jump venue in Histon, just outside Cambridge. There are two pits, one with smaller jumps, one with bigger, some gap jumps. Can be hard to find, is near St Andrews church. Please be warned, the jumps are poorly maintained and have fairly severe corrosion, they are in urgent need of maintenance. The small pit is in worse condition that the large pit*

Access Info

from St Andrews church, go down Cottenham lane until you reach a track on your right, called gun's lane. Go down this track until you see a fairly obscure singletrack on the left. Follow this in the same direction until you reach a field (there may be some brambles). In the field, you will see the two clumps of trees that mark the pits. The left one is the big pit, the right is the more manageable one.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

Disclaimer

do NOT leave rubbish, take it away with you, it threatens the future of these jumps!

      Many of the jumps have dried and are faster riding, although they still need attention.
