Its not a public park its not chicksands, or the olympic park, there is no funding theres no charge to ride and everyone who respects the place is welcome. it has been built over many years with shear bloody hard work buy a very small group of riders with a love of the small place we have managed to carve out for ourselves.
Its a result of giving up countless days when we could all be with our friends/ family/ working, working through everything the british winter has to throw at you, stood in the freezing rain up to your knees in mud. On top of that you know theres no chance of riding what your building for months while you then wait for everything to dry out. We do not build in the spring when the ground is dry.

Now with the spring everyone comes to ride and the litter, blown out jumps and vandels return with them. If quarter of the people who say they will help build actually turned up in the winter it would be managable but we all know this never happens.

Sorry if i sound like a dick but this is what happens year after year after year. I know on here im kinda preaching to the converted. Please everyone is welcome to ride this is what we build for. But while you there think, pick up your shit, and maybe come backwith a shovel after october when its rotten and were actually building again.

I've recently re-located to Enfield and sorted myself out with another hardtail. Enfield Jumps is local to me & I'd love to get involved. Being Northern Irish I don't mind being out in the rain either!

Let me know when you're there next and I'll pop along with my spade!

Hi guys been reading this forum and seems the local riders have been doing a grand job on these trails. I was wondering if these trails are still here today as ive read that they may have been knocked down. I know the location isnt made public. I drove around today in that area and couldnt find it. Would be great if its still there as me and a few pals wouldnt mind riding and also busting out the shovel for digging needs. I can dig like a ninja haha but may need a bit of guidance when it comes to trails. Cheers if anyone can help
