Designing the Trails at Deers Leap
Designing the Trails

There comes a time when we all need to brush up on our riding skills, and we all need to learn a few new techniques. Most centres will require you to know how to do a drop off or ride a berm but what if you never have?

We recognised here at Deers Leap Park that there was something missing from the Mountain Bike Scene and so decided to create a dedicated Mountain Bike Training Facility within walking distance of the shop. Our aim is for you to learn all the basics and beyond and then leave here ready and able to ride any venue in the UK. We will be incorporating a Rock Garden, high berms, jumps, drop offs, doubles, table tops, gaps, sweeping tracks and more.

Work is being overseen by our resident international expert Jason Jurock, a trail builder from Canada who happens to live in East Grinstead and has built some trails at Deers Leap already. Jason builds to the highest standard and if you join in with any of the digging you’ll get some invaluable insights into what goes into building a world class trail.

Work has already begun and you should see it finished by the beginning of October ready for weathering in for next season. We will be looking for volunteers to come and assist us in shaping the runs so if you want to come and get involved then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
