Anyone been recently? I pretty much only ride chicksands and a few local bmx tracks but just saw this video and the place looks pretty amazing. Anyone got any directions to the place or to find the good stuff to ride like the downhill bits

A mate in Reading said the blue trails were/are completely flooded.

Those trails are right at the back of the freeride area. Really good fun to session but they are short. They hold up pretty well in the rain as its sandy, and largly undercover. Your bike will hate you though as the wet fine sand grinds into everything....

Lots of repair work hoping on their due to weather, as said above some of them are or where under a lot of water.. Best check their FB page as that has most latest news on.

But Swinley when it is running is a great place.. Blue trail is real good fun...
