This is still an officially unsanctioned trail network. We’re currently working with the landowners to formalise access.
Go orc-hunting. Middle Earth is 23km of pure, varied fun ranging from flowing single-track to log obstacles, rocky technical sections, berms and jumps.
Masterminded and built over the years by Rod Lakelin and Pete Battye, Middle Earth has featured as a stage in the Cape to Cape race, as well as a variety of charity rides and other events. The trails are best suited to intermediate to advanced riders, but confident beginners can also have a blast.
