Does anyone know if Red Hill is still open? I was hoping to get up there this weekend but a friend told me that it was closed the last time he went.

Happy to announce that yes, Red Hill has re-opened. It is now operating as a user pays mountain bike park. Be sure to bring plenty of 20 cent pieces with you to put in the ticket machines that are spaced approximately every 100 metres.

Yes it is open and great fun, unless you're planning on bringing a 4X4 or motorbike.

Yeah it is a cool place. I had a good look around it this weekend. The best single tracks take quite a bit of seeking out. Seems pretty weird that there's so many motos about though. What's the deal with that?

Ask Christine Eye-wink

I think it's universally agreed that everyone would prefer they weren't there. Where the consensus breaks down is where they should go.

Here might be a good start:

Don't get me started!!!
Weere there really many up there or just a couple? Lately they have been really nice so I'm hoping they were polite (also bloody well illegal)

Yep I average at least 2 or 3 motos each ride up at red hill , there is more and more as now it's the only known spot for motos in the area even though there not meant to be there
A real shame as it sucks seeing all there mess and hearing there noisy buzzing but that is just become the normal thing for red hill now I see more motos than other mtb bikers these days

Maybe they can earn their keep since every trail I walked the dogs on up there this morning has trees down...not happy moto riding stopping every five mins!

Bad news for the moto's but also bad news for us.....I suppose a bit of cyclocross never hurt and our machines are lighter!
