Where can I practise?

All-year-round practice is available at Cowm Leisure
 
It's very helpful to have a local practice ground where you can ride without the pressure of a competition. If you are very lucky, you may know a local landowner who will let you use some of their land. If not, there are a few local places where you can ride for payment of a daily fee. These are at:
  • Cowm Leisure - a very large quarry near Whitworth, Rochdale. See their website for more information.

  • Feniscowles - a disused moto-cross track southwest of Blackburn with a stream and woodland. Just off Livesey Branch Road - follow Stockclough Lane approximately one mile. Contact: Pete - 01254 830554

  • Parkwood Off-Road - a very large area of woodland at Tong, near Bradford. Is used for World Championship Trials. More information on their website

  • Cliviger - hillside with streams and woodland near Holme Chapel, on the A646

You must make sure that you have the landowner's permission to be on their land - failure to have this may result in confiscation of your bike!
