    Mountain bikers have been using Ashton Court since the early 1990s, and it was one of the first places in the country to get an official MTB trail back in 2002. The new trail is far more weather-resistant than the old trails and is aimed at riders of all abilities. Beginners can the basics dialled and more experienced riders can use the trail’s undulating surface to gain speed. There’s an optional red descent in the middle of the trail, featuring a pumpy jumpy beginning and a rock-strewn lower section that wouldn’t be out of place on a DH track. There are also lots of optional lines dotted round the trail to keep things fresh even after repeated visits.
