Suffolk Dirt Jumpers (Ipswich area)

Postby matt_hillyard » Fri Jan 16, 2009 08:49 am

Maaarnin all...

Well I just thought i'd drop in and say hi de hi! I know there are a few spots in the area to hit but most look to be a bit run down at the minute....Ive resorted to hitting the local bmx track and sessioning the jumps there!!!

Does anyone ride in the area know where there are still rideable jumps!?!??!

Anyones input would be appreciated and if there are any riders out there who dont mind having an extra one tagging along with their group give me a shout as jumping on your tod does get a bit lonely!!!!


Cheers,

Matt

Hello mate.
Not Suffolk, but only about 45mins up the A12, Danbury Common. Ever been or heard of it? Only found it the other day. Not really a jump park, more a few down hill trails and drop offs but if ya bord it makes a change!

Cheers mcflyss....

....No never heard of it or been but think i will give it a visit as although i like dirt sets hitting some good drops and singletrack is definitely worth a look.

I will have to load the bike up and check it out!! Hope its not too boggy there atm as thats the only problems with the trails around here atm is that they are just so water logged.

Hello mate,
Was there the other day, not too muddy, just the right amount of mud if you know what I mean!!

If heading N/B on the A12, take the first exit you see after the Royal Mail building on your right hand side. Then just follow the road until you come to a car park on your left hand side.. you will know you have the right one as there is a big rock with an honesty box in it to pay for parking. then follow the track that leads into the woods, you want the one that kinda runs to the right, there are others that just lead you up to the road, no good... head to your right, you will see a few small hills and then you cross the bridle path for some massive mansion.. keep going and you come to the big hills!!! All the fuin starts here!
Let me know what ya think, could always meet you there one day?

HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLY £$% :shock: £$% :twisted: ^% :shock: $& :twisted: ^!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Went down those trails today and they are mentally cool!!! :shock:


Strugled to get back into in on one of the sections but the double that leads into the table are cool to warm up on and then there is a long downhill set right inbetween two trees which flow into a double! It was awesome!!! Really floaty!

I met some awesome riders down there too. I can tell you now it wont be my last trip down there!! Was the first time i've hit trails in about 7 years and boy i dont know why i stopped!!! Need to look at my bike set up now as i can tell it wasnt 110% perfect!

Still buzzing!!! hahaaaa....

Anyone else hit these trails before?!?

I might have to head up there soon, and get face planted into the mud im sure` Wud like to see how it is done though so maybe i cud come when you are tehre Matt??

Here are a couple of shots from Danbury, they do not do it justice at all and it is not as mental as the woodbridge site, but it is a nice Big area with sum good drop offs and a couple of trails about 30s in length, good day out really.
