Off-Road Cycle Trail

The off-road cycle trail at Campbell Park opened in summer 2019.

The track was installed because of the increasing popularity and demand (at all levels) regarding off-road cycling, along with recognition and the success of the Cyclocross event in 2018 and the World Cup event back in 2014. The course was inspired by both of these previous courses but changed to allow riders to enjoy some of the quieter parts of Campbell Park, while enjoying the challenges of the undulating terrain.

The track has been mown into the long grass across the park or through our woodland areas and where we have some turns, we have tried to make these more obvious with gravel markings. Each lap is 2.5km and has been created to be suitable for less experienced riders.

The track is intended for all riders with Mountain (MTB), Cyclo-cross (CX) or Gravel bikes and has been created to not be too technical although there are some steep gradients with riders climbing to 85m per lap!

Please see below a photo of our information board which is displayed at the start of the trail:

See the video of the trail at the top of this page which was filmed with the help of Velobants CC. It gives you a great insight into the trail.
