The London 2012 Olympic Mountain Bike course is not open to the general public. However, riders of a suitable standard who are interested in riding the course may have the chance to join supervised rides.
Essex County Council in partnership with the Salvation Army are delighted to offer Mountain Bike riders of a suitable standard the opportunity to be part of the “Hadleigh Farm Led Rides” programme.
The led rides are delivered by ATB coaching and Tom Dowie Coaching at a cost of £45 for a four hour session and £25 for a 2 hour ‘taster session’.
This session is designed for riders who want to complete the entire Olympic MTB XC Course and ride all of the 9 recognised features.
You will be guided by our experienced and qualified coaches who will lead you around the course and provide you with expert guidance on the correct technique to safely complete each technical feature.Riders can book onto the four hour session which will start at 10am and break at 12pm for a 30 minute lunch and reconvene at 12:30pm for the final two hours. Cost: £45
Each session has a capacity of 14 riders. Riders must be highly skilled and have experience of riding black runs at Mountain bike trail centres across the country. A self-assessment will be sent out on completion of your booking with the coaches completing a skills test on the day. The coaches reserve the right to refuse participation in the led rides if they feel an individual is at risk of causing them self or others harm.
