The Dukeries Rally will be passing through the park on Saturday 8th.
We can’t hire bikes out and the trails are closed, but they are open as usual from Sunday 9th June.
The shop is open and so is the workshop, so you can come on down and see us!
Dry and very fast! There is some loose sand blowing about which can be a bit slippy – so be careful.
Get out and enjoy these conditions!

Bring some photgraphic ID.
Riding conditions are drying out fairly well – there is the odd bit of snow and mud but mostly everything is rideable – and we should (fingers crossed) see a big improvement in conditions in the next few weeks as temperatures rise!
