The need for Manmade trails

Like them or not, manmade trails are now integral parts of modern mountainbiking. Whilst there will always be the "real" mtb’er hunting out a new sneaky bit of singletrack or pursuing an "epic" over the mountains, there is also a new breed of rider coming into the sport through manmade trail centres.

Getting whole families biking

These centres could perhaps be likened to a ski centre, with graded, maintained and signposted trails, "funparks", café, hire, uplift, shop and even medical cover. Good trail centres can be an excellent venue for families for all the above reasons as well as a destination for all mtbers when bad weather rules out natural trails.
