NEW ROUTE Leckhampton – Bigfoot GB XC Tuesday Club Ride

Meeting place and directions

Leckhampton Hill Top Car Park, Hartley Lane GL53 9QL
(New location is now on the Meeting points page)

Directions: If you start to drive down Leckhampton hill from the Air Balloon (first left after roundabout), follow the road around tightish left swoop then look for a VERY tight RIGHT turn that turns back on itself slightly. This is Hartley Lane.

Drive up the road, DO NOT park in Hartley Lane CP (It’s an old quarry), drive past, up the steep hill, past the HUGE grand designs house on the left, then take you next left. Just on your right you’ll see the car park. Simple!

  1. Unsure at the moment. Wife’s car in garage so she’s using the truck.
    Depends if I can work out logistics with cars, garage & work.
    Might end up riding from the front door and going-local…
