The Steel City DH race track was created in 2012 specifically for Peatys Steel City DH race. With permission from the Wildlife Trust a new trail was constructed by BikeTrack.org and paid for completely by funds raised from the first running of the race in 2011. Since then money from subsequent races has paid for the up keep and expansion of the trails in Grenoside woods.

Access Info

Park in grenoside car park and follow the way marked sign posts.
