What's next for Still Woods?

At present things are a bit uncertain. The existing trails are in ruins, and it's been made clear that any unofficial attempts at rebuilding will be dealt with in the same way.

However, the landowners (Bristol University) have said that they would be willing to work with riders and keep the site open if use can be formalised in some way, and they have a central point of contact to turn to if any issues arise.

There are indications that they would like to limit use of the site for riding, with just three main tracks. Beyond this, we're still not certain what they are prepared to agree to, but we'll let you know when you hear more.

Save Still Woods

On 29 October 2009, Bristol's only purpose-built downhill mountain biking venue, Still Woods, a.k.a the Plantation, was closed to mountain bikers by land owners Bristol University.

Help us work with the University to ensure the woods future as a respected mountain bike venue for all.
