View of where the DH trails used to start

The access road is no longer a sea of mud

A few months down the line, and a lot of work has been carried out in the wood. Trees have been felled, the access road has been upgraded, there are new footpath markers in, environmental and Rights of Way surveys are underway, and the site has gone from being neglected - by everyone but mountain bikers - to being actively managed.

At the moment the woods aren't the most appealing place to look at. The University will be addressing this over the next few months and taking steps to clear up the mess from felling and replant some areas.

From our point of view, the best news is that an area is going to be "pencilled in" for mountain biking. It's not definite yet, but it's encouraging.

The current round of work will be drawing to a close around October 2010 so expect a further update then.

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.
