I just read about that place. Looks nice. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leigh_Woods
Much of my youth was spent building trails there. It's compact but perfect for technical riding. The fact that it's minutes from the city centre is a huge bonus.
Seeing the Wiki picture of one of the quarries in Leigh Woods has jogged my memory - the 2 Wheeled Drive-in Cinema is on again this year during the Bristol Bike Festival, after last years superb outdoor showing of Point Break (with ex-President masks) this year it's going to be The Lost Boys, and then The Wicker Man with some added extras: http://whatshotinbristol.com/2011/08/21 ... mber-2011/
There's nothing like sitting in an abandoned quarry in the woods watching a retro film drinking cider and eating popcorn.
