Hadleigh Park in Essex carries the London 2012 legacy on its shoulders – ride here and feel like an Olympic athlete! After the Games, the XC racetrack was adapted for the public and split into blue, red and black-graded sections, meaning there’s something for everyone. As you’d expect, the trails are well planned and built, and ridable in all weather. It’s an easily-accessible location with great facilities, but don’t come here expecting airtime or long descents. This is purebred XC territory, so bike up accordingly and you’ll have a great time.
