I am new to the whole downhill mountain biking scene so I don't know where all the courses are so I was wondering if anyone knows of a comprehensive map of all the downhill courses in the UK with an uplift service, Thanks a lot!

    Not really. There used to be one on Southern Downhill but it's out of date, a lot of the trails don't exist anymore.
    What area are you in?

    There's a lot missing for that guide. Most of the South West downhill spots are missing. Including Triscombe, Avil Ball, Coombe Sydenham, Longleat, Rowberrow, Puddletown and several other smaller ones. Tavi Woodlands is missing as well, thats inexcusable, it's an official riding spot and amazing to ride.

    I am in Hull east Yorkshire. Thanks for the help I just want places to ride that aren't as far as fort William or anthur Stiniog. I believe the closest one to me is Hamsterley forest with an uplift service is that correct?

    The website is nothing to do with me, but isn't this the tavi woodlands you speak of?

    Also as the website is mainly a user submitted guide why not add some of your favorites rather than just sitting there and saying how censored it is :roll:

    The tracks Pearce cycles use aren't too far from you, check out their website for uplift days. There's also the Farmer Johns track.
    There are plenty of hills around Yorkshire, there must be plenty of unofficial downhill tracks.
