Sunday 22nd January: Due to an unusual amount of wind and rain so far this year (today excepted!) there's been quite a bit of damage to the mountain biking trails in the woods above the Rifle Range. We've had to temporality shut the MTB trails until repair works are complete. Thanks for your understanding - watch this space for further updates!
