This is TheCorrectives own venue on over 100 acres of private land. We have club access to the land on agreement with the landowner and will be holding public events in the future.
The land has over 100m of drop and is a mixture of woodland and scrub, perfect for downhill tracks. The project started in 2009 and we are currently working on the second track which should be over 750m long.
Trail building sessions are held regularly over winter, you can find out about these on this site and on our Facebook Group.
In 2009 Bishop Cleeve Parish Council ran a competition with local schools to design a beginner BMX track. Following this competition the council funded the construction of the track. The corrective were involved in the construction and provided many volunteer hours in finishing and shaping the track.
This land is owned and managed by Cheltenham Bough Council, some areas are a designated Site of Special and Scientific Interest (SSSI). It is both geologically and archeologically important for its Limestone exposures and quarrying history. The Council has duty to help maintain and preserve this status.
The Corrective maintain close relations with the council on any matter regarding bikes on the hill, to try and ensure mountain biking integrates harmoniously with the area. We have also had input into the Leckhampton Mountain Bike Leaflet.
Daisybank dirt jumps are again on land owned by Cheltenham Bough Council. In 2007 the venue was flattened over safety concerns, in the long term this has worked in our advantage. The Council has invested back into the site and we now have an excellent area for beginners to more advanced dirt jumpers.
As with all dirt jump sites it is continious development, if you wish to get involved in digging Contact Us (even if you are not a club member). The council usually approve all work, but any unauthorised digging will be removed.
FOLK are a conservation organisation that helps manage Leckhampton Hill and Charlton Kings Common.
A Corrective member is represented on FOLK’s Executive Committee and assists with resolving issues that may arise from mountain biking. TheCorrective members also assist FOLK with work parties, especially in the winter months when there are scrub clearance requirements.
