My 15 year old son thoughrilly enjoyed a gay at the festival with his friends
Great do for anyone with a love of mountain biking
Great little festival. Awesome atmosphere 👍🏻
A nice friendly atmosphere, and the biking was good.
Looking forward to next year.
Festival Hub and main area were good but was unsure about the security of camping in a public park but there were no issues I know of so if you use common sense and look after your Kit I guess all should be fine.
Nice weekend. A bit quiet in the evening. Could have done with a night ride or some kind of activity.
Very friendly local event. Lots of demo bikes to try
First time we have been as my son who now loves bikes and was so happy he found new friends who share the love of bikes we would definitely be going to the next event
Great venue. Friendly staff. Great trails. Great beer. Now the negatives. No running water. The pizzas ran out before 6pm. There was only 5 portaloos. The bitter ran out on Saturday evening.
Great event, hopefully will grow over the coming years to have more manufacturers involved offering demos.
Take away mountain biking which I love and you still have a festival which was fantastic. I met a few friends there that I didn't think would be going because they aren't really into mtb, so just goes to show that a local festival still draws in the people.
Really glad that this event takes place each year and everytime getting bigger and reaching more people
Keep up the good work folks
A great family friendly weekend. Lovely venue and a friendly welcome from everyone.
Great experience for families with children of all ages-bikes &trikes to try out for free.
Circus skills &a lovely play area in the next field.&lots of grassy space to run around on!!
They even got the perfect weather!!
Will be back with my bike next year.
I really enjoyed the event, but in the same way I would enjoy being out on my bike in the sunshine, so it's sometimes difficult to see what I got for my money by being at NG. I think maybe have cheaper ticket prices, then charge supplements for things there - maybe a few quid for the gpx's of the rides, a couple of quid for a bike demo, a couple of quid for a childs wristband for access to the child events, maybe charge a small uplift on food a drink (which is very reasonably priced atm). I'd still spend the same, but there might be more people at the event and a better atmosphere as such.
A nice chilled festival for people!
Recommended for family's and keen riders
Good event, it was just a shame the kids skills session was cancelled, had 4 kids there so they were a little disappointed.
Not really a festival more of a gathering of people. Not sure why tickets were being sold to get in. A few stands to buy merchandise and a few stands to buy some expensive food. Small disco in the corner that would be in any pub. Event was empty by 7pm. Only good thing was the biking and that was free.
I was expecting things out on the trails like brass bands and some random lunacy as I had heard about the previous one. This didn't happen. It was unclear about routes. It was a very small festival. I was expecting some bike stalls. There was one only I think.
