Hadleigh Farm is gradually shaping up to look pretty good!!!
Some of it is rideable at weekends when it's not being worked on!!!!

Couple of quick snaps from yesterday's ride into Southend from Hadleigh, this is just a very small part of what's there now.

Sorry about the quality.....iphone!!!

We should do a group ride there. Is it open all the time?

Edit: found this which answered my question. Looks like spring 2015 when it opens to the public.

I've ridden parts of it at weekends when it's not being worked on. So far it's pretty good, the rock gardens are stupidly steep (TV didn't do it any justice) but there are bermed sections next to the rocky bits for the less suicidal!!
There are now 2 tunnels by the looks of things where as the Olympic track only had 1. It has been expanded and loads of extra bits added. It's pretty vast, with new bits added to what was already a public section of parkland. The 2 downhill stone bits in the photo look pretty mental and are very steep. There is a new multi million pound visitors centre currently under construction so all in all it's being taken pretty seriously. It will probably end up being a pay to ride facility, but how they monitor that will be interesting!

Hi, just signed up. I'm in Basildon, usually ride at Langdon Hills or Hadleigh. Actually rode the Olympic site before it was open to the public.
My bikes are few weeks from rideable but I'd be interested in meeting new folk to ride with.
