FLYUP 417 PROJECT NEWS!!!


FINALLY: FLYUP 417 PROJECT GOES FULL STEAM AHEAD

We’re unbelievably happy to announce that after two years of blood, sweat, and sometimes even tears, the FlyUp 417 Project has finally been given full planning permission - and is all systems go!

Despite being told by the experts that the red tape would be a quick and easy process, it’s dragged on and on, and has been a monumental challenge. Thankfully it’s now fully signed, sealed and delivered with only a few tweaks to the original plans.

We’re all working as hard as we can to open the Project ASAP and we’ll keep the updates, news and developments coming regularly via our newsletters and social media.

About the 417 Project:

The 417 Project is the biggest privately owned mountain bike facility in the country offering a variety of riding disciplines within one venue.

The 100 acres of land will be home to three downhill tracks from blue to red/ black grade, and supported by the slick uplift service you’ve come to expect from Flyup. On top of that, we’ll have a national level 4X track and Dual Slalom run, which will be the country’s first MTB Drag Lift service. The Jump bag, freeride area and one acre dirt jump arena will no doubt be enough to keep every rider on their toes. For those seemingly more frequent rainy British days and dark winter nights, we have two separate indoor riding barns totalling over 1100 square metres. We’ll also have a café, bike shop and workshop on site to make sure you can keep fuelled and keep riding.

Even better news - the tracks are already under construction by Architrail - a leader in the trail building industry - who are working with us to produce some of the best tracks this country has ever seen.

Located near Cheltenham, we’re only four minutes from the M5 and an hour and half from London, making the 417 Project easy to access from all major cities.

We also wanted to really thank our very loyal and supportive customers, especially those who have already pre-purchased 417 items/day passes though the Indigogo campaign that ran last year. Your patience will definitely pay off and we will be in touch with you direct about your perks.


Look forward to another southern trail centre :)
