Summary:
Pedalabikeaway Cycle Centre is where the FODCA Trail and several excellent downhill tracks are located.

The FODCA Trail (soon to be re-named the Freeminer Trailtrail) is a 4.5km challenging and varied Singletrack with tricky switchback climbs, rooty drops and hairpin bends. Graded RED on the CTC classification of cycle trails, it also received a glowing report from MBUK, when they reviewed it in 2008. The other (mostly downhill) trails behind the cycle centre are also well worth seeking out.

Recommended Route:
There's plans to build a waymarked 10 mile route too, but currently the FODCA Trail is the only way-marked trail at the cycle centre. To the left of its start point there’s a track leading to several, first class, downhills. The main downhill, known locally as the 'Ski-Run' or '661 mini' (after a race held there) is easy to find and well worth the push-up. It features several technical sections and a big jump to finish. Further up the hill, and to either side of the Ski-Run start point, you’ll also find other excellent downhill tracks.
