Devon has long been a hotbed of Mountain Biking. Talented riders have steadily sprouted from within Devon’s borders over the years but until recently its tracks and trails have largely been secret or unpublished.
The tracks and trails built by the Woodland Riders have now reached world wide acclaim. There are two sites providing some of the worlds most challenging downhill tracks; Tavi Woodlands and Gawton.
Indeed Dirt Magazine use the ‘Super Tavi’ tracks as the testing grounds for some of the worlds top riders! Click on the links below to see the articles.

- Team Chain Reaction visit Gawton
- Marc Beaumont Team GT
- Danny Hart and Josh Brycland

Because the tracks are built on private land that is leased by Woodland Riders you MUST be a member or have a day pass to ride there. Click here to find out about how to buy your passes or membership.
With the sites moving forward all the time this is a truly an exciting time to be riding your bike in the Tamar Valley and even if you are not quite ready for these tracks it’s always worth popping in on one of the race days as spectating is free and spectacular!
