We are a small group of dedicated people whose goal is to return Still Woods to its former status as a top class mountain bike area for Bristol and the South West.

Danny, or Hamish as he's more commonly known, is the current president of Bristol University Bike Club.

Rob is a past president of the Uni Bike Club and was a member of the Still riders' committee in 2004-5.

Dan K was a Still regular prior to the demolition.

Jamie is editor of Wideopen Mag and a former committee member of Foel DH.

Antony is chairman of Bristol Trails Group and edits the Stolen Bristol Bikes blog.

Mart is a long time user of the site and is currently manager of Mud Dock.

If you want to get involved too, just get in touch with us. We need support and we'd also welcome advice from anyone who's been in a similar situation. In the long term, if we can agree terms of use with the site's owners, we are going to need people to help redevelop and look after the site, as well as deal with the extra issues raised by going official. This ain't no closed shop, just drop us an email and we'll try and involve you in some way.

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.
